UCLA could feature as many as seven two-way players in 2015

BY foxsports • July 30, 2015

The revolution started two years ago when Jim Mora handed the ball to linebacker Myles Jack.

The UCLA true freshman at the time wowed the nation with his elusive moves as a running back in his first taste of offense at Arizona. 

Since then, Jim Mora has not shied from having some of his most talented defenders play a little offense. From defensive end Cassius Marsh lining up at tight end in the red zone to defensive tackle Eddie Vanderdoes bowling over defenders two years ago against USC at the Coliseum.

It looks like Mora will give even more players a chance to go both ways in 2015, according to ESPN's Brett McMurphy.

Pac-12 defenses were taken by surprise two years ago by Jack lining up at running back. Opposing defenses were ready for him last year. But if new players decide to go both ways, that could be a new wrinkle defense will now have to account for.
