Chase Coleman composite recruiting rankings as of April 15, 2024

UCLA’s coaching staff pulled in a commit out of Texas, poaching 6-foot-1 cornerback Chase Coleman away from North Texas. Until being recruited by UCLA, Coleman hadn’t received much attention from Power 4 schools. However, Coleman’s size and athleticism offer an enticing package that could turn into something with good coaching.

Karson Cox composite recruiting rankings as of April 15, 2024

Head Coach DeShaun Foster continues his hot streak with the commitment of Karson Cox. More importantly, he beat out cross-town rival USC. The 6-foot, 205-pounder unofficially visited the Trojans in January, two weeks after they extended a scholarship offer. Two months later Cox received an offer from UCLA and attended an official visit just last weekend. Clearly, the visit with Foster stuck as he is now a Bruin. Cox had 17 total offers during his recruitment, and it will now be important for UCLA to keep until signing day.
