Bruins closing the gap

It was just week ago today that Bruin head coach Rick Neuheisel and his coaching staff recruited one of the best classes in the nation. They were the surprise victors for the services of Josh Shirley and some were surprised when five-star defensive end Owamagbe Odighizuwa decided on UCLA.

Some were surprised that the Bruins beat their archrivals, the USC Trojans for so many players. This has not happened for a very long time and it was the second recruiting season in a row that the Bruins held their own against the Trojans.

Bruin fans were treated with a few head to head recruiting victories a year ago, when Neuheisel and company won recruiting battles for the services of Morrell Presley, Randall Carroll, Keenan Graham, Stanley Hasiak and Xavier Su'a-Filo.
