Westbrook To Take Some Visits

The Compton (Calif.) Dominguez lineman and UCLA commit Lacy Westbrook is taking some visits while he waits to see who the next Bruins head coach is....

Compton (Calif.) Dominguez offensive lineman Lacy Westbrook (6-5, 300) committed to UCLA last month.

But then when coach Rick Neuheisel was fired, Westbrook decided he wanted to take some official visits.

The four-star tripped to SMU last weekend and enjoyed his time in Dallas.

"The trip went really good," said Westbrook. "It was very interesting. It was a nice campus and a nice city. The people were very friendly."

Another Southern California currently at SMU hosted Westbrook.

"Dontae Levingston who played at Narbonne, was my host," said Westbrook. "And I hung out with a lot of the other guys from L.A. there."

Westbrook also talked extensively with offensive line coach Adrian Klemm, himself a Southern California native.

"Coach Klemm was who I was with most of the time," said Westbrook. "He's a real cool guy and a really good coach."

It was the first official visit for Westbrook and he plans to take a few more.

"I'm probably going to take one to Arizona State and I'm planning on maybe taking one to Washington and I'm thinking maybe Oregon if they contacted me later on."

For now, though, Westbrook says he remains committed to UCLA.

"I still plan on going to UCLA, and I stay in contact with (interim coach) Mike Johnson," said Westbrook. "I'm still committed and I am really interested in going there despite the coaching situation. I've just been really thinking about it and talking about it with my family and even though I still am committed to UCLA, I want to take my trips."

Westbrook said a final decision will come in the new year.

"By late January, I'll have my final decision and be fully locked in," said Westbrook.
