Chip Kelly’s Bruins haven’t been… great. Or good. And now they’ve lost their 5-star prospect quarterback, Dante Moore.

Kelly has some major rebuilding, and maybe rethinking, to do heading into the 2024 season but I think that with his coaching resume and the Bruins’ hunger to bounce back from a disastrous 2023, UCLA will do just fine in the Big Ten.

UCLA will more likely than not see a few freshmen fill in at starting positions. 

Two quarterbacks, Henry Hasselbeck and Karson Gordon will be vying for the starting spot while their O-Line will be filled with a few freshmen peers. Marquis Thorpe-Taylor, Jensen Somerville, and Mark Schroller will all look to start on the offensive line.

Hasselbeck and Gordon will also likely be joined by freshman running back Cameron Jones, a 3-star recruit out of California.

The Bruins can easily push their way into a top-10 position in the conference.
