Is there any seat in the country hotter than the one Rick Neuheisel is sitting on? He needs some wins at UCLA and he needs them, like, yesterday. The best way to get better results on the field is to get better players into the program. And wouldn't you know it? Today is National Signing Day.
This is the first day that players can make their collegiate commitments official by signing their letters of intent. There are also a lot of players out there who have yet to make a decision that will be announcing their intentions throughout the day.
It's early, but UCLA has already missed out on a prospect that was considering them. Troy Niklas, an athlete from the Anaheim area, has committed to Notre Dame. The final two schools he was considering were Notre Dame and USC, but UCLA was one of 10 schools that had given him an official offer.
The next announcement that UCLA fans should be waiting for is Devin Lucien, a wide receiver from Encino, Calif. He is considering UCLA, Arizona St., Colorado and Miami. He will be making his announcement at 2:55 p.m. Pacific.
