Starr Takes in UCLA's Meet & Greet

Norco (Calif.) linebacker Scott Starr talks about his time in Westwood at UCLA's Meet & Greet over the weekend...

Norco (Calif.) linebacker Scott Starr was one of a host of visitors at UCLA last Saturday for the Bruins' Meet & Greet.

"It was a good time and my first time being at a basketball game," said Starr. "The atmosphere was kind of breathtaking and was amazing. It was a good experience."

Starr got to meet several of the Bruin coaches he'd not met before.

"I met with (Jim) Tresey, the new defensive coordinator and Clark Lea, and mainly all of the defensive staff, but also got to talk with Coach (Wayne) Moses and Coach (Rick) Neuheisel. I'd met them last season and I went to the Oregon State game," said Starr. "Coach Tresey seems like a real nice guy and a good coach. He said it's been a little hectic, but come the next few weeks, things will be on track and they'll know more about an offer. But they're definitely a school I'm interested in."

Starr had not been to UCLA previously.

"The school was real nice," said Starr. "I'd never been to a college campus before, but I had a good time up there.

This weekend, Starr will be at USC's Junior Day.

"I don't think I'll be going to any other schools other than USC for a while," said Starr. "I'm also hearing from Oregon and Stanford."

Starr has offers from Arizona, Arizona State and Colorado already under his belt.

"When Arizona State offered, it was a relief, because I was wondering when the first one would come so I wouldn't have it blocking my goals," said Starr. "Then Colorado offered and then Arizona offered."

The 6-4, 225-pound Starr said he's back fully working out for his senior year.

"After the season, I took a month off, just to let it cool down, but once January hit, we all started lifting and running," said Starr. "I want to gain another 5-10 pounds."

Academically, Starr has a 3.4 GPA and will take the SAT and ACT in the spring.
