Corona (Calif.) offensive lineman Isaiah Folasa, who committed to UCLA back in July, is keeping his options open now that Jim Mora has taken the reins at UCLA.

"They told me I still have a scholarship, but I'm keeping my options open and going on more visits, just to be safe," Folasa said. "Right now, I'm going to visit UCLA next weekend, New Mexico on the 20th, and Colorado on the 28th."

Colorado recently offered the lineman, which gives him some more to think about. With his visit next weekend, Folasa is hoping to get a bit more clarity from the UCLA coaching staff as to his status, and make sure there's a spot for him in the fall. Folasa will be visiting with his cousin, Hiva Lutui.

In talking with him, the new coaching staff has not given much indication of the possibility of grey shirting, which is just as well for Folasa, who would prefer not to.

"I probably wouldn't want to grey shirt and have to spend a year not doing much," Folasa said. "Redshirting is a possibility for me, but not a grey shirt."

Folasa said that other schools recruiting him currently include Montana, Montana St. and Fresno St, but he's not sure yet if he'll be visiting any of them.
