Alec Dana, out of Norco, Calif., recently attended UCLA Junior Day and said he likes both the team and new staff, is keeping his options open and is not letting proximity get in the way of his decision.
"It doesn't matter to me, I can go anywhere. I like Texas, Florida, UCLA, Oregon State...those are the schools right there that I can think of right now," he said.
Dana may not have any offers yet, but is working hard to change that. He also plays basketball and baseball, has made football his main focus and is looking to personally improve on a few aspects of his game.
"Football is the sport I want to continue with. I'm working on my catching and routes and trying to make defensive backs not know what I'm going to do. I'm continuously working on that," he said.
Looking ahead to college, Dana already knows a few programs that he's interested in.
"I always wanted to go to Oregon or California. Oregon because I really like their speed and the way they run their program. I don't know why, but I've always liked the Cal program since I was a little kid," said Dana.
Dana, who lists his 6'3" height as one of his greatest strengths because it enables him to "catch the ball over people," is also working to help the Sharks go further into playoffs this season.
"Last season, we made it to playoffs but lost in the first round. This off-season, we're working on our defense, our speed, and our throwing. We work out a lot, train a lot every day. Lots of treadmill workouts and going out to the field," he said.
