UCLA senior running back Soso Jamabo sees some opportunity to thrive in Chip Kelly’s offense.
Optimism has been circling around the UCLA football program since the hiring of Kelly. Jamabo believes fans will get a sneak peek of what’s to come when the Bruins conduct their spring game on Saturday.
“It’s a new UCLA, a new mind-set and we’re coming,” Jamabo said, per the Los Angeles Times’ Ben Bolch.
Jamabo’s underwhelmed at running back and so has the entire team in the last two seasons. UCLA has a 10-15 record the last two years, that was with arguably the best quarterback in college football. Now, the Bruins have a new coach and will inevitably name a new starting quarterback.
Kelly is going to have his hands full trying to implement his system in Year 1. Yet, he’s had success in the Pac-12 before. UCLA fans are banking on Kelly bringing a winning formula to Westwood.
This Saturday will provide fans with an initial impression.
