Lyons Enjoys His Visit to UCLA

Wayne Lyons, the #6-ranked safety in the nation from Dillard High School in Fort Lauderdale, Fla., talks about his official visit to UCLA earlier this month and the timeframe for his decision...

Fort Lauderdale (Fla.) Dillard safety Wayne Lyons has taken in two official visits, and has one more scheduled in the next few weeks.

Lyons will still take all five of his visits, but only Notre Dame and UCLA have been taken, and Nebraska is up next.

The four-star safety visited Notre Dame when the Irish hosted Michigan and then a week later was in Los Angeles to see UCLA face Houston.

"My trip to UCLA was really good," said Lyons. "It was a good environment and a great atmosphere. It was my first time in Los Angeles and it's definitely the place for the stars. I went up into Bel Air and Beverly Hills."

Lyons was hosted by Eric Kendricks and spent time with most of the Bruin coaching staff.

"I talked mainly with Coach (Clark) Lea, who's my recruiter, but got to talk a lot with Coach (Tim) Hundley and Coach (Chuck) Bullough as well as Coach (Rick) Neuheisel," said Lyons. "Every time I talk to Coach Lea, he makes sure I talk with all of the coaches." The 6-0, 185-pound Lyons wants to major in engineering and got to spend time taking a close look at the academic landscape of UCLA.

"Their engineering program and academics are really nice and a big part of my decision is on academics," said Lyons.

Lyons will be at Nebraska when the Huskers host Missouri and he's leaving his last two visits open from amongst Stanford, Florida, Michigan and Tennessee.

"I'll probably take an unofficial to Florida though," said Lyons.

Lyons said he's got an ideal time when he'll announce.

"I'll be announcing at the U.S. Army Game," said Lyons.
