"The visit was great," said Tejada. "I liked the facilities and the way they are turning the program around."

The Miramar standout got to tour the campus and get an up close look at the Bulls brand new practice facility.

"They're real nice. Everything was brand new and they're also not very far apart," said Tejada. "I also like the fact that you have 24 hour access."

The Bulls haven't played a game in their completely revamped arena yet, but Tejada got to see the new Sun dome up close.

"It was really nice and like everything else, brand new," said Tejada. "It's big and looks like it holds a lot of people."

"I have offers from Miami, UCF, George Mason, and FIU," said Tejada. "USF, South Carolina, Marquette & Florida are all showing interest."

While he doesn't have an offer from USF, he did say they're showing a lot of interest.

"They said they like me and that they're looking forward to seeing me play a lot more during the live period," said Tejada.

He did say the visit went very well and affected how he felt about the Bulls.

"It played a big impact on me," said Tejada. "I feel it's a good all around program and it allowed me to learn more about the school and the program."

Being a 2014 prospect, Tejada said he doesn't have any favorites just yet.
