For those interested to see quarterback-turned-wide receiver Devin Fuller behind center, that time may come sooner rather than later.

The former top-tier quarterback recruit moved to wide receiver to get playing time as a freshman last season. On Thursday following UCLA football’s second spring practice, coach Jim Mora said the team is continuing to work in a package during practice with the rising sophomore, Fuller, playing at quarterback. Mora talked more about the package for Fuller as well as expanding on the team’s system during the offseason after practice.

Also after practice Thursday, rising redshirt junior running back Jordon James, currently getting repetitions as the starter, and rising redshirt freshman running back Paul Perkins discussed the open running back competition to replace Johnathan Franklin.

Injury updates:

  • Mora said rising redshirt senior defensive end Keenan Graham had a “slight hamstring pull” and will likely miss a week of practice.
  • Rising redshirt junior linebacker Eric Kendricks came out of practice late because of an ankle sprain, according to Mora. The coach said they will evaluate it further to see whether it is anything significant.
