College Football News Preview 2020: Top UCLA Bruins Players
Best UCLA Bruins Offensive Player
WR Kyle Philips, Soph.
The team needs one of the quarterback options to become the team’s best player, but that’s going to be an ongoing fight. The receiving corps should be a plus if the quarterback play is fine, and it starts with Philips being the go-to guy after leading the team with 60 catches for 681 yards and five scores.
A strong recruit for the program with good quickness and decent consistency, he might not make a ton of deep plays, but he’ll be dangerous with the ball in his hands as both a receiver and a punt returner.
2. QB Dorian Thompson-Robinson, Jr.
3. RB Demetric Felton, Sr.
4. QB Colson Yankoff, Soph.
5. OT Sean Rhyan, Soph.
Best UCLA Bruins Defensive Player
DE/DT Osa Odighizuwa, Sr.
Part 3-4 end, part 4-3 tackle, the 6-2, 279-pound senior put together a decent first three seasons as a part of a line that doesn’t get behind into the backfield enough. He’s been one of the team’s most active defenders, and he was the team’s best player behind the line with 3.5 sacks and ten tackles for loss. Decent against the run no matter where he played, he was also fifth on the team with 46 stops.
2. S Stephan Blaylock, Jr.
3. DT Tyler Manoa, Jr.
4. LB Leni Toailoa, Sr.
5. DT Otito Ogbonnia, Jr.
