Bruins Impress Owusu

The Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian receiver, Francis Owusu, talks about UCLA's Junior Day...

It was a busy day for the Owusu family.

Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian receiver Francis Owusu took in his first Junior Day, just hours after his brother Chris Owusu ran the 40 at the NFL Scouting Combine.

The youngest Owusu, Francis, was thinking about his brother in Indianapolis, while also spending the day in Westwood at UCLA.

"UCLA was excellent," said Owusu. "They are really excited about me and I am too so it was good."

Owusu was offered by the UCLA coaches earlier this week and said that while the Bruin staff was excited to have him there, they didn't push for a commitment.

"I talked to a lot of the coaches and they were really excited in me coming," said Owusu.

Owusu said that the Bruins have made a strong impression on him and are doing well in his recruitment.

"They are definitely a top school for me," said Owusu.

Owusu spent time with Adrian Klemm, the Bruins offensive line coach, who recruits Oaks Christian for UCLA, as well as receivers coach Eric Yarber.

Next up is a trip to Palo Alto, where he'll see Stanford , where Chris played the past four years, for Junior Day for the Cardinal.

"My parents and I are going to make the trip up there this Friday and Saturday," said Owusu.

Meanwhile, Owusu said he was pretty amazed with what his brother clocked in the 40 from Indy.

"I heard he ran a 4.36," said Owusu. "I was like, wow."
