Bruce Is On the Bruin's Radar

Fresh off a move to Southern California, Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco cornerback Dalis Bruce (5-10, 180), has embraced his role with the Braves, who will find themselves in the challenging Trinity League this fall.

For Bruce, it's no big jump, having played at Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista the past two seasons, which plays in the East Bay Athletic League, the top league in Northern California.

Bruce, who has four offers, is hoping that the move to Southern California gets him some more options to choose from.

"I definitely think schools will get more involved now that I'm in the Trinity League and we have a good time with a lot of talent," said Bruce.

Bruce, who boasts offers from Oregon State, Utah State, Colorado and San Diego, is hoping that both of his parents' alma mater, Cal (dad) and UCLA (mom) get involved.

He was at UCLA this past weekend for the Bruins' fall scrimmage.

"It was good visit," said Bruce. "I got to see all the coaches and speak with them and they were happy to see me there."

And Cal said they would be watching the start of his season.

"Cal said they will definitely watching the first three games," said Bruce, who will now play with Cal commit Bryce Treggs.

Oregon is also going to be watching Treggs, who's former teammate at Monte Vista, Jeff Lockie, is a commit to the Ducks.

"Oregon said they would be watching the start of my season too," said Bruce.

Bruce said the attention is coming on both sides of the ball, with the Buffs having offered as a receiver, Utah State as an athlete and Oregon State and San Diego as a corner.

"I think honestly, I could play either way, but my body type is more fit for corner, so probably just corner is where I'll play in college," said Bruce.

Academically, Bruce has a 3.0 and got a qualifying score on the SAT, which he took in May.

Brandon is in his seventh year with Scout.com, currently as the National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
