UCLA Bruins left no stone unturned in their Week 3 victory over the NC Central Eagles. From the very first play, the Bruins, led by their true freshman phenom QB Dante Moore, showed their dominance on the field.
Dante Moore wasted no time making his mark, delivering a stunning 67-yard pass to Kam Brown on the opening play of the game. This electrifying play set the tone for the entire match, propelling the Bruins ahead, and they never looked back.
Throughout the game, the Bruins displayed themselves as a force of nature. Their performance was so overwhelming that Moore didn’t need to play the entire game. In fact, Head Coach Kelly decided to give all five of his quarterbacks some playing time. This move came as no surprise to those who have been following UCLA closely this season.
Coach Kelly has been notably hesitant to commit to a true QB1, and the game against NC Central Eagles did little to change his stance. In a post-game interview with the media, Kelly reiterated that he is standing pat on his quarterback carousel and won’t commit to Dante Moore.
Many fans and analysts find Kelly’s decision perplexing. It’s abundantly clear that Moore stands out as the best among the group. His performance as a freshman quarterback shows immense promise, not only at the college level but also potentially at the next level. It’s a straightforward conclusion: Moore is the undisputed QB1 who can lead the Bruins to numerous victories this season and in the future, potentially elevating the team to national contention.
While Coach Kelly’s decision may linger, it’s only a matter of time before Dante Moore takes the reins as the sole leader of the Bruins. Despite the delay in formalizing his position, fans are thrilled that Moore is a Bruin, and they eagerly anticipate his emergence as the quarterback of the future for UCLA.
