LOS ANGELES (AP) - Jim Mora got off to a fast start in his first year as UCLA's coach, posting a 9-5 record. In the opening phases of his second go-round, he appears to have mastered the delicate art of recruiting.
Mora and his staff inked 23 high school seniors to national letters of intent Wednesday, a class that could be even more impressive than his first.
UCLA administrators and donors presented Mora with a greater array of resources this year, including the luxury of a private jet. The jet allowed for UCLA's staff to develop relationships with a greater number of nationally attractive recruits.
