Biggest offer: This goes back to late last week, as UCLA extended a scholarship offer to 2015 offensive lineman Zach Robertson (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco) on Friday. That makes two offers for the 6-foot-4, 313-pound tackle, as USC and UCLA have both offered. That's big news for a local lineman, as the hometown programs often take their time with recruits in their backyard while other Pac-12 programs -- Arizona, Arizona State and Washington, most notably -- are quick to offer Los Angeles prospects. Grabbing offers from the Bruins and Trojans at this stage -- before Robertson has even taken a snap as a junior, as he sits out the first month of the season after a transfer from Lakewood (Calif.) Mayfair -- is significant. In all likelihood, Robertson will slide into the starting lineup when he is eligible and make an imposing offensive line that much better. This recruitment could also make a statement as to where the two Los Angeles programs stand next year, as they'll go toe-to-toe for Robertson.
