Westbrook Enjoys Meet & Greet

Compton (Calif.) Dominguez offensive lineman Lacy Westbrook joined three other Dominguez teammates at UCLA this past weekend for the Bruins' Meet & Greet.

"It was a good environment, I learned a lot about the school's history and their accomplishments athletically and academically," said Westbrook. "It was a good experience."

Westbrook had been to UCLA plenty of times growing up.

"I'd actually been to UCLA's campus a lot of times during my childhood so it wasn't nothing too new to me, except for the Hall of Fame, which was really cool. And the basketball game was really exciting. The fans are crazy there," said Westbrook.

He also got to look at the school more closely.

"We took a tour of the campus and that was good, because we got to see some of the facilities, and the coaches were very cool and very good people," said Westbrook. "I spent equal time with all of them, but talked the most to (Coach) Mike Johnson and Coach (Bob) Palcic, I talked to him too."

Westbrook has a UCLA offer, but said he wasn't inclined to commit at any point.

"I still want to go through the process," said Westbrook. "I'm evaluating schools and trying to make the best decision possible."

But Westbrook said that the opportunity to play with his Don teammates, cornerbacks Alphonso Marsh and Brandon Beaver and defensive lineman Damion Turpin, is intriguing and all boast an offer from UCLA.

"If that ever came about, UCLA would be a great place for us all to go but we've got to do what's best for each of us," said Westbrook.

Westbrook has eight offers, coming from New Mexico, New Mexico State, Washington, UCLA, SMU, Nevada, Colorado and Fresno State.

He'll be at USC's Junior Day next weekend.
