UCLA Football: 6 Recruits Most Likely to Start as Freshmen

With a recruiting class currently ranked 10th overall by both Rivals and Scout, the UCLA Bruins are poised to add some very talented players to the roster in 2013. 

It's never a given that prospects entering college can come in and make an impact right off the bat—let alone start as a true freshman. Established programs have the luxury to redshirt the majority of an incoming recruiting class. That is done in order to help with the physical development of the athletes, and also in regards to the mental aspects of college football.

UCLA is in the midst of a rebuilding phase. As a result, the Bruins don't necessarily have the benefit of redshirting uber-talented recruits.

The Bruins have no qualms about playing freshmen. This past season alone, over a dozen freshmen saw play time—including a spell in which six freshmen started at one point. The Bruins have multiple holes to fill in the starting lineup, and it wouldn't be a surprise to see some of the incoming freshmen see early time.

Here are six recruits that could potentially start in 2013.
