UCLA
fall camp is just a few days away, and with that,
BruinSportsReport.com will kick off its fall camp preview with the
quarterbacks.

2013 UCLA QUARTERBACKS AT A GLANCE

PRE-CAMP DEPTH CHART
style="border: 1px solid rgb(221, 221, 221); padding: 4px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-size: 8.5pt;">
1. Brett Hundley - 6-3, 227, RS
Sophomore
Hundley is the leader of this offense. Wherever he goes, UCLA will go
this season. In fact, because of his huge spring camp, there's some
talk he might even be good enough to leave early for the NFL after this
season.
2a. Jerry Neuheisel - 6-1, 191,
RS Freshman
Neuheisel had a very disappointing spring camp after performing well on
the scout team last season. He'll have to improve if he wants to be
Hundley's backup this year.
2b. T.J. Millweard - 6-3, 218,
RS Freshman
Out of all the second-string QBs in the spring, Millweard fared the best. If
he backs up that performance with a nice fall camp, Millweard could get
the nod as Hundley's backup this season.
3. Asiantii Woulard - 6-4, 220,
Freshman
Woulard arrived on campus looking the part. A massive 6 feet 4, 220
pounds, he's definitely on the All-Airport team. If he can throw the
ball half as well as he looks, he should be in the race for Hundley's
backup spot this season.
5. Mike Fafaul - 6-1, 199, RS
Freshman
A walk-on with a live arm, Fafaul will have to overcome size concerns
to beat out the big three backup QB candidates.

BATTLE TO KEEP AN EYE ON
style="border: 1px solid rgb(221, 221, 221); padding: 4px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-size: 8.5pt;">The
backup quarterback spot will be one of the most intriguing position
battles to watch this August. If Hundley goes down, with no more
Johnathan Franklin, the Bruins have to have a QB capable of carrying
the load. Right now, none of the above quarterbacks looked like they
could do that in the spring. Seeing how they perform on a day-to-day
basis in San Bernardino will help figure out who gets the nod, but they
all have to be better if UCLA truly wants to rely on them as the backup
to Hundley.

PRESSURE IS ON...
style="border: 1px solid rgb(221, 221, 221); padding: 4px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-size: 8.5pt;">Jerry
Neuheisel. Yes, he's only a redshirt freshman, but he's one of the
oldest players on the team. The son of former UCLA head coach Rick
Neuheisel, he should also be one of the brightest players on the team
as well. But after regressing in fall camp, he's in danger of sliding
deep down the depth chart. If he can't improve, he could find himself
buried by the rest of the quarterbacks on this team.
style="padding: 4px; background-color: rgb(221, 221, 221); font-size: 8.5pt; text-transform: uppercase; font-weight: bold;">
NEWCOMER TO WATCH
style="border: 1px solid rgb(221, 221, 221); padding: 4px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-size: 8.5pt;">Obviously,
it's Asiantii Woulard. He's a complete mystery on the West Coast, as he
played his high school down in Florida. Scouts out in California
haven't seen much of him other than film, so catching his play on the
first day of camp will be interesting. If he can show that he has the
skills, UCLA sure would feel better about QB recruiting for the next
few years.
style="padding: 4px; background-color: rgb(221, 221, 221); font-size: 8.5pt; text-transform: uppercase; font-weight: bold;">
POSITION MVP
style="border: 1px solid rgb(221, 221, 221); padding: 4px; background-color: rgb(255, 255, 255); font-size: 8.5pt;">
It'll be tough to find a better quarterback in the nation than Brett
Hundley, let alone the Pac-12. He was outstanding in spring ball, and
was outstanding during the season last year too. He has "Top Five Pick"
written all over him if he can keep improving, and he should be the
reason why UCLA contends for a Rose Bowl this season.
