Chip Kelly landed the No. 32 class in the country for UCLA football in 2020, but which incoming signees will have immediate impacts?
Chip Kelly’s first two years in Westwood haven’t exactly gone as planned. He’s just 7-17, winning three games his first season and four in his second but he’s hoping things turn around quickly in 2020 after landing the No. 32 recruiting class.
Although its just the Pac-12’s sixth-best class, it has some solid pieces and guys who could see the field right away as true freshmen.
Which signees have an instant impact for the Bruins in 2020?
Kyle Phillips had a huge freshman season with the Bruins, catching 60 passes for 681 yards and six touchdowns to lead the team in receiving, but outside of him, Chase Cota and Jaylen Erwin were the only other wide outs with a pulse.
There wasn’t much depth in the receiving corps and that’s why a kid like Logan Loya should help. The four-star wide out from Bellflower, Calif., is the highest-rated early enrollee in the Bruins’ 2020 class and he should see the field immediately to help give that offense a massive boost.
Loya is the No. 328 overall prospect in the class and the 56th-best receiver, according to 247Sports, and the fact that he’s already on campus and working with the team and he’ll have the playbook down by the end of spring ball will help his outlook as a freshman.
Chip Kelly should give the speedy 5-foot-11.5 receiver some snaps in 2020.
