    Mora is doing a Kiffin/Saban/Meyer like purge of the current UCLA recruiting class, but since it is UCLA he has been able to do it quietly. UCLA had 28 verbals on 1/17/12 and they now have only 26, despite the fact that they have picked up 5 new verbals since 1/17. That means they have also lost 7 verbals in the last 2 weeks. I have not been following the exact decommitts but I would guess most if not all of them were forced out. Right now 17 of the 26 UCLA verbals committed since Mora was named coach, which is a very impressive achievement in less than 2 months. However he and his staff also had to burn a lot of bridges to get that done and that may come back to haunt them on the recruiting trail in years to come.

    One other note on those 17 Mora UCLA verbals. Rivals lists 12 of the 17 as three stars. He did pick up four quality 4*, Rios, Fuller, Ishmael Adams, and Jeremy Castro, three of which ND recruited pretty heavily at various times. He also picked up one 5* in Ellis McCarthy but that one was basically by default because of the McCarthy family's dislike of Kiffykins combined with the departure of Lupol from Cal to UW.
