Lucien Loves Trip to UCLA

Encino (Calif.) Crespi receiver Devin Lucien has a new perspective about the local school, UCLA, after his official visit and the Bruins are heavily in the mix for him...

Encino (Calif.) Crespi receiver Devin Lucien took his third official visit this weekend, and he didn't have to travel very far, going to UCLA.

"I loved it," said Lucien. "They're in my top list again and I have a whole different perspective on them as a school. It was great there. They really go in depth and showed me what UCLA football is all about."

Lucien was hosted by Tevin McDonald and also spent time with other players.

"Tevin was my host and I also saw Dietrich Riley and Sheldon Price," said Lucien. "And I talked a lot with Brett Hundley. Brett's tight. We've been texting a lot back and forth and he's trying to get me to go there."

Lucien said he also talked with head coach Rick Neuheisel and offensive coordinator Norm Chow at length.

"They didn't pressure me (to commit), but of course they wanted me," said Lucien. "They're really short on receivers, and I think I can go there and play right away."

Lucien has previously visited Arizona State and Kentucky and he'll visit Colorado next week. Visit number five is up in the air.

"I haven't decided yet on if it's Michigan or Miami for my last visit," said Lucien. "I'll decide this week. I'm leaning towards Miami. The whole Michigan coaching thing has messed me up a little with them. They had their recruiting coordinator call me and not the coach."

Earlier this week, Lucien was offered by Pittsburgh, but said he's not really considering the Panthers.

"Pittsburgh offered me but I'm not going to take a visit there because it's a little late," said Lucien.

This week, Lucien will have Miami coach Al Golden, Kentucky coach Joker Phillips and Colorado coach Jon Embree in for in-home visits. The following week, Arizona State coach Dennis Erickson and UCLA coach Rick Neuheisel will be in.

"I'm going to announce on Sunday, the 30th of January," said Lucien.

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.
