UCLA Keeping Eye on Weinreich

The Arroyo Grande (Calif.) offensive linemen Garrett Weinreich is talking frequently with the Bruin coaches, and UCLA is one of the only schools who hasn't offered he's still interested in...

Arroyo Grande (Calif.) offensive lineman Garrett Weinreich has nine offers and couple of other schools are taking a wait-and-see approach with him.

The 6-6, 290-pounder has offers from SMU, Washington State, Oregon State, Arizona, Colorado, San Diego State, San Jose State, Utah and Fresno State.

"The only other school I've talked with that hasn't offered is UCLA," said Weinreich. "I talk with Coach (Clark) Lea sometimes. I went to their game against Texas. I would love to play at a place like that in a huge stadium. That was my first game as a recruit."

Weinreich will probably not make any other college games this fall, with his plans for visits likely to be later in the process.

"I don't have any officials set, I'm going to wait until after the season," said Weinreich.

Weinreich said for now, four schools are standing out to him and likely to receive visits.

"Oregon State, Colorado, Arizona and Fresno State are the top schools that have offered me," said Weinreich.

Oregon State, in fact, has an ace-in-the-hole in his teammate Brent Vanderveen, who's committed to the Beavers to play quarterback.

"Brent really wants me to go there," said Weinreich. "I think I may go with him when we take our visit. Coach (Mike) Riley has come to a game and they're recruiting me the hardest."

Weinreich said, though, he's not going to make an early decision like his teammate did.

"I'm not really in a rush, I'm pretty much waiting until the season is over. I don't want all the stuff in my head right now," said Weinreich.

Weinreich returned to action last week after missing the first two games after an appendectomy.
