May 29, 2012Editor's note: Every Monday BSR Publisher Edward Lewis will answer some questions from fans about the Bruins in this weekly mailbag. Send questions to firstname.lastname@example.org, @EdwardLewisBSR on Twitter, post questions on the message board or put questions on BSR's Facebook page.
Mike: Out of all the recruits at EYBL you saw this weekend, who's a must-get for UCLA?
Mark: Who are some legit hoops prospects that we can realistically expect in this class?
SouthOCPsyD: What's the latest on the potential "package deal" of recruits (i.e., Moore, Byrd, Goodman, Willis, Clark, Mathis, etc)? How many players are actually included in this potential "package" - and what's the likelihood that they end up at UCLA? If we land a bunch of the kids that are expected to be a part of this package deal - and we get an OL class of Falah, Dowling, Bunte, Rogers, and Morris/Lopez - plus we get Larue, Ross, and Owusu at WR - Lee and Green at RB - Printz at QB - and Hollins and Jack at LB - is this a class that could compete with the small - but elite group of recruits that USC is pulling in this class?
Smartone148: In Chris Brown's new book (@smartfootball on twitter), he talks about defenses that run hybrid 3-4 / 4-3's where each side of the defense looks like a different defensive set. He talks about coaches likes Belichick and Saban running defenses like this. Could you see Spanos incorporating a concept like this for UCLA's defense, given the desire to play 3-4 but the greater depth of defensive linemen than linebackers?
SouthOCPsyD: How many OL are you hearing that the staff is planning on taking? Do you think the following class would be a realistic possibility: Falah, Bunte, K. Rogers, C. Morris, Dowling, and Lopez? Is there a more likely OL class that you would expect us to get (you seem to think Quessenberry is a high priority for us - would you substitute him in for somebody on my list)?
