McClure On the Cusp of Decision

Vista (Calif.) cornerback Stefan McClure, a four-star U.S. Army All-American, will take one more visit, to UCLA, then his decision will come and he talks about his time frame to announce and playing in the Army Bowl...

As he plays in the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, Vista (Calif.) cornerback Stefan McClure is relishing the opportunity.

"It's a huge honor," said McClure. "There are only 45 guys on the West and to be selected as one of those is an honor. The only player from Vista was (Cincinnati Bengals corner) Leon Hall, and that is pretty good company when you're up there with Leon."

McClure said he's had to raise his level of play this week.

"There are a lot of challenges out there, everyone is a little more fast and more crisp than you see during the week during the season," said McClure. "George Farmer, of what I've had to go against, is the strongest and quickest. He's the toughest to jam and uses his hands well."

When the week concludes, McClure will take his final official visit, and he's got five schools he's still considering.

"I went to Oregon State, Colorado, Boise State and Washington and I go to UCLA on the 14th," said McClure, who's top five is Oregon State, Colorado, Boise State, California and UCLA.

And a decision won't be much longer after.

"With me visiting UCLA next weekend, shortly after that I'll decide, hopefully during the week. I'm not wanting to drag it out. I'm ready."

McClure said that Oregon State, Boise State, Cal and UCLA will be in for in-homes in the next two weeks. Of that group, only Mike Riley from Oregon State has been there from the head coaching ranks.

"I really don't have a favorite from the final five, but I'll be picking from the five," said McClure. "They're all pretty much the same."

McClure is ranked sixth nationally at cornerback by Scout.com and helped lead Vista to the CIF-San Diego Section D-I title.

Brandon is in his sixth year with Scout.com, currently as the West Regional Manager. Prior to joining Scout, he spent three years as an o-line and tight ends coach in the high school ranks.
