White Talks Visit and Future Trips

Lakewood (Calif.) offensive tackle Torian White, a commit to the Bruins, talked about his official to UCLA and two more trips that he's set to take...

Lakewood (Calif.) offensive tackle Torian White was one of a handful of UCLA commits to take in their official visits this past weekend.

"It was great at UCLA," said White. "I really enjoyed it. I loved the campus. The campus was great. The area is really nice, especially during the offseason. Just looking at how it was built. I didn't think it was that big. There are so many nice areas around the school. My family came up with me too."

White was hosted by Owamagbe Odighizuwa and hung out with the other recruits.

"I hung out mostly with Ben Wysocki, Jacob Brendal and Fou Fonoti, the offensive linemen," said White. "We talked a lot with Coach (Bob) Palcic and Coach (Rick) Neuheisel, but pretty much we talked with all of the other coaches."

White also spoke with new quarterback Brett Hundley.

"I talked a lot with Brett and he's a really cool guy and easy to talk with," said White.

White took a visit to Arizona last month and will visit USC and Oregon State before he signs.

He said that despite the visits, he's still committed to the Bruins.

"I am still committed to UCLA," said White. "I just want to check out some of the other schools and just looking around and seeing some other places. But I'm signing with UCLA."

White said the Bruin coaches didn't pressure him to put his two remaining visits off, despite not necessarily wanting him to take them.

"They didn't really want me to visit Oregon State or USC, but Coach Neuheisel said he trusts me and has confidence in his own school," said White. "They know I'm turning out to be a Bruin so I told them there is nothing to worry about."

White was supposed to visit Oregon State this weekend and then USC the following weekend, but those trips may be flipped.

"Depending on my family schedule, it might have to be switched around to USC this weekend and Oregon State for the last week," said White.

White has had Neuheisel and Oregon State head coach Mike Riley in for in-homes, and will also have USC head coach Lane Kiffin in soon.
