UCLA early signing day: Chip Kelly goes deep at quarterback

UCLA’s quarterback situation has been in constant flux, with Coach Chip Kelly emphasizing the importance of having depth at the position. After using multiple quarterbacks in their first game and throughout the season due to injuries, the Bruins have added two high school recruits to bolster their quarterback ranks. The recruits, Karson Gordon and Henry Hasselbeck, are both multi-sport athletes with impressive athletic backgrounds.

Gordon, who comes from Bellaire (Texas) Episcopal, won the high school national championship in the triple jump. Meanwhile, Hasselbeck, from Xaverian Brothers in Westwood (Mass.), comes from a notable NFL family, with his father, uncle, and grandfather all having played in the league. Both recruits add depth and talent to UCLA’s quarterback position.

In addition to the quarterback signings, UCLA also welcomed three offensive tackles and a running back in its recruiting class. The Bruins’ recruiting efforts were given a boost by the addition of these promising young players, who are expected to contribute to the team’s success in the future.

Moreover, Coach Kelly emphasized the importance of having a balanced recruiting class, using a mixture of high school recruits and transfers to build a strong team. He acknowledged the need to lean on the transfer portal for additional safeties and edge rushers, as the team looks to solidify its defensive lineup.

Overall, the addition of the two highly-touted quarterbacks and other promising recruits bodes well for UCLA’s future as they seek to build a competitive and talented team. With the ongoing challenges and changes in college football, the Bruins’ recruiting efforts aim to ensure that they remain strong and competitive in the years to come.
