Adrian Klemm definitely made some money on signing day.
The offensive line coach/recruiting ace landed UCLA seven uber-talented offensive line prospects. While seven may seem a bit of an overkill, the Bruins truly need depth. It's not out of the question to think that five of the seven could potentially see time next season as true freshmen.
Depth is paper thin, and the talent isn't much better. Just based purely on the numbers, it was clear that UCLA needed to address this unit, and boy did they.
Klemm signed prospects from California, Arizona, Tennessee and Texas. Every single offensive line prospect signed played in some sort of All-Star game, and each of the seven had offers from all over the country.
Of the committed prospects, each brings a certain skill to the table.
Center Scott Quessenberry is a very tough and intelligent prospect. He's also considered to be very athletic for an offensive lineman. Similarly, Phoenix native Kenny Lacy is a very long, athletic lineman with a good upside.
Caleb Benenoch and John Lopez are massive individuals. Both are physical, tough players who thrive in the run game.
Christian Morris is a long, good looking tackle from Memphis. He had offers from all across the country and decided to stick with his long-term commitment to the Bruins.
Perhaps, the offensive line commitment with the most upside is Poasi Moala. He's got every tool that one would look for in the prototypical offensive tackle. He needs to gain weight, but he's got a very bright future.
The former Oregon commitment Alex Redmond is an absolute beast. A renowned wrestler in Southern California, Redmond combines a nasty streak along with immense physicality. He's the type of warrior one wants in the trenches.
With this haul, Klemm has completely restocked the offensive line with talent. Expect one, or possibly two members, of this group to start next season.
