LOS ANGELES (AP) - Although Jim Mora landed a third straight solid recruiting class for UCLA, the coach had to be frustrated by the names that got away.
The Bruins put together another top-20 recruiting class in Mora's third offseason in Westwood, but a series of blue-chip prospects declined to choose UCLA on national signing day. At least six players who had strong interest in the Bruins went elsewhere, with only New Orleans linebacker Kenny Young picking the Bruins.
Yet the very idea that a top-20 class could be seen as a disappointment is a testament to the progress made under Mora by the Bruins, who will head into next season as a Pac-12 title contender behind quarterback Brett Hundley.
Young picked the Bruins over LSU and Texas A&M.
