UCLA Football: Target Practice

Ron Robinson recently received a scholarship from UCLA and the Class of 2014 recruit is considering the offer.

Each and every week, as frequently as possible, we plan to take an inside look at multiple players from the Class of 2014 that UCLA is keeping a close eye on. Securing an all-important commitment, of course, is the goal for the coaching staff of the Bruins.

In the future, think of this space as your proverbial one-stop shop for news and notes about the gridiron goings on for potential targets of UCLA. So without further ado, it's time to reveal a list of who’s who and the chances the Bruins have to land each individual.

Ron Robinson, S, Corona (Calif.) Santiago: The 6-foot-2 and 190-pounder picked up an offer from the Bruins this past weekend after an impressive performance at the program's Elite Camp. The nation's No. 65 player at his position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings, Robinson figures to to think long and hard about accepting the scholarship given the fact his only other offer is from Northwestern.

Joseph McIntosh, S, West Hills (Calif.) Chaminade: Similar to Robinson, UCLA jumped on the bandwagon of McIntosh after recently seeing him in action on campus. Also 6-2 and 190, pounds, he's opened plenty of eyes over the course of the last month, or so. San Jose State and Wyoming have scholarships on the table for him. Boise State, however, poses as the biggest threat to the Bruins moving forward.

Stanton Truitt: ATH, Monroe (Ga.) Monroe Area: With close to 30 schools waiting on a commitment from the 5-10 and 185-pounder, UCLA decided it was about time to offer and did so on Monday. Tennessee looks like the frontrunner for Truitt. Florida, North Carolina State and South Carolina are also in the mix for the nation's No. 42 player at his spot on the field in the 247Sports Composite Rankings.

K.J. Williams, ATH, Bethlehem (PA) Liberty: Versatility is the biggest asset of the 6-2 and 190-pounder, who can lineup at wide receiver or safety. The Bruins have had a scholarship waiting for him for a while now and perhaps things are on verge of taking a turn for the better. A couple of days ago, he said that UCLA will be one of his five official visits in the fall. Williams is bound for Westwood.

Harrison Phillips, DE, Omaha (NE) Millard West: There's plenty to like about him, particularly when it comes to his frame. Perhaps that best explains why UCLA offered him on Monday. The 6-3 and 248-pounder uses his size to his advantage from the weak-side and is the country's No. 32 player at his position in the 247Sports Composite Rankings. Still, Stanford looks like option No. 1.
