UCLA Football: Survival of the Defense – Defensive Backs

For a few years now we’ve been hearing one of the strengths of this UCLA Football team is the defensive backfield.

Even with the Bruins losing major contributors at four different positions, this unit remains a strength of the team.

UCLA has experienced and talented guys returning this year, not to mention one of the most talented defensive backs they’ve ever recruited is already taking part in spring practice.

Who’s New: Darnay Holmes, Quentin Lake, Morell Osling, Jaylan Shaw, Elijah Gates


This unit dealt with an early shakeup during spring when potential starting corner John Johnson abruptly left school with the intention to transfer and play as a graduate student elsewhere.
