The elite four-star tight end got one of his earliest offers from UCLA, but with so much turnover on the Bruins staff, it was the first time Cope-Fitzpatrick got to meet several of the new coaches.
"It was good there, I learned a lot and got to meet the new coaching staff," said Cope-Fitzpatrick. Coach (Mike) Johnson (the new offensive coordinator), seems like a pretty cool guy and I can't wait to see the new look of the offense and see what he is going to change."
Cope-Fitzpatrick also got to speak with two other new additions to the Bruin staff.
"I met every one and talked a lot with the new tight end coach out of Nevada (Jim Mastro) and he seemed like a down-to-earth guy and the new D-Line coach out of Montana (Inoke Breckterfield) seemed the same," said Cope-Fitzpatrick. "I really just am waiting to see what kind of coaches they really are because most of them have only been there a week."
Cope-Fitzpatrick said that UCLA is very much in the race for his services, but he's not ready to narrow things down.
"UCLA is for sure in consideration," said Cope-Fitzpatrick. "I am just taking it one day at a time and seeing what other schools have to offer. Each one has its pros and cons so until I visit more I am unbiased about all 120 BCS schools."
And Cope-Fitzpatrick said he meant that.
"Any school that shows interest, whether its Auburn or Montana State, I will take a look at," said Cope-Fitzpatrick.
This weekend, he'll be at Cal's Junior Day.
