Between 2005 and 2012 UCLA started 7, 7, 9, 10, 8, 4, 8, and 9 white players each season. No write-ups were done between 2013 and 2015. In 2016 UCLA started 6 white players and in 2017 they rose to 8. In 2018 UCLA project to fall to only 3 white starters, the lowest on record. Definitely not a team to root for in the PAC-12 by any means unless they get time into their white freshmen. Josh Rosen and Kolton Miller were taken in the top half of the first round of the NFL Draft, while Scott Quessenberry was taken in the fifth round. Four white WRs on the roster in FR Kyle Philips, RS SR Christian Pabico (18 caycjes for 280 yards and a TD in 2017), FR Chase Cota (Rivals.com’s #21 WR, father Chad Cota played in the NFL from 1995-2002 as a DB), and JR Ethan Fernea. Plenty to be excited about in Pabico and Cota when they get game time. One white RB on the roster in RS FR Cole Kinder (6-0 196lbs) – rushed for 1900 yards in 10 games as a high school SR. On defense, Rick Wade is the only white player on the two-deep. Wade made 33 tackles in 2017, 5 for loss. FR Bo Calvert was Rivals.com’s #17 OLB prospect (386 career tackles in high school, 11.5 sacks as a high school JR). Two white DBs on the roster in RS FR Ryan Parks and FR Zach Huffstutter. Chip Kelly takes over the head-coaching role, taking over from the fired Jim Mora. Kelly was always reasonably white-friendly when with Oregon, Philadelphia and San Francisco (especially with the Eagles) compared to other coaches so it wouldn’t surprise me if they trend upwards in the future as Kelly gets his say in recruitment – it’s already started, with two FR WRs, two FR DBs and the highly-rated Bo Calvert at OLB. Might not look like much of an impact so far but I have faith that Kelly will at least bring this UCLA team back to the pre-2013 era at least. Offense LT: Andre James (JR) RT: Michael Alves (JR) Defense DE: Rick Wade (JR) Back-ups listed on the two-deep include QB Matt Lynch/Wilton Speight, LG Sean Seawards, C Zach Sweeney, and RG Bryan Weitzman.
