Wide receiver Ammon Barker (Sandy, Utah/Alta) committed to UCLA in early November, but will now likely decide between Hawaii and San Diego State. Barker was recruited to UCLA by Marques Tuiasosopo, who left in late December to become the quarterbacks coach at Washington.
"My coach left and I wasn't sure where I stood with them," Barker said. "They got in contact with me and said I didn't have an offer, so I've been looking elsewhere."
Doesnt surprise me. They're full.
Another school following the $EC ways of recruiting.
Bamboo, or else...

Not surprised. Seems typical of Mora.
gotta make room
Based off of what? Just curious since this is only his second season as a College Football coach. Is it sour grapes because they beat us on the field and off the field with recruiting, or is there some sort of history here?
I would say mostly sour grapes... I can't stand the guy either (however, that goes back to his NFL days) and he seems like a slime ball to me too. But they beat us on the field and then beat us in recruiting more often than not... players that had us in their final group along with UCLA the past two years: (I know I'm missing some)
And I know I'm missing some. We've beaten them one time... just once so far on the recruiting trail and that was only because they were really late to the party.
Deon Hollins and Kenneth Clark are two others
did Deon Hollins have us in his final group? I forgot about Ken Clark... dang. I know it's not likely to outrecruit UCLA for every home town player but we should have been able to with some of the out of town players like Christian Morris and Deon Hollins, neither of them have special connections to LA.
He always said he wanted to visit here. I think we were in his top 5. If memory serves, he never really narrowed it down...his commit kind of came out of the blue. I'd say we were in it.
it all happened so fast I can't remember it too clearly, but that sounds right. In the end though, his doesn't hurt as bad because we got three dang good LBers anyway.
Also, that 5 star defensive end (whose name I'm not gonna even try to spell) from a couple years ago that picked them over us.

Owa... yeah that was more than in the last two years though. I was just recounting since Mora had been there.
Gotcha. I think he's gonna be a Senior, so yeah.
Agree. Maybe this will come back and haunt UCLA. One can only hope.
