Back in spring, the UCLA football team was only utilizing three quarterbacks. Dorian Thompson-Robinson, Austin Burton and Chase Griffin. Since the start of the 2018 season, the Bruins have lost or repositioned three other players. Devon Modster transferred to Cal, Wilton Speight used up all of his eligibility, and Matt Lynch moved over to tight end.
Though it was not ideal to only have three QBs in spring, the Bruins got more backup as they were able to bring in three more QBs, one via transfer and two walk-ons.
