Bruins In The Mix for Jack

The Bellevue (Wash.) linebacker Myles Jack talks about his spring visits, which includes one to UCLA...

Bellevue (Wash.) outside linebacker Myles Jack (6-3, 220), has kept quite a busy spring, visiting half of the Pac-12 schools and heading to a pair of Southern schools this weekend.

"I've been to Washington, UCLA, Cal, Stanford, Oregon, Arizona State and I'm going to Georgia Tech on Friday and South Carolina on Saturday," said Jack. "Purdue and South Carolina are my most recent offers. I'm hoping to get an offer from Georgia Tech this weekend."

Originally from Atlanta, Jack has been hopeful the hometown Jackets would offer, but an offer wouldn't necessarily sway things in their favor.

"Getting an offer from Georgia Tech would be huge," said Jack. "They actually like me on both sides of the ball. They run the ball a lot, probably the closest offense to what we run at Bellevue, so that's kind of intriguing. So I'm definitely thinking about them."

Still, much of Jack's attention is coming from, and going towards, the Pac-12, where he's spent much of his summer getting familiar with the program. He's been to UCLA twice and to Washington on a few different occasions.

"I went to Washington this week, and I went to some of their earlier practices, and obviously, it's close to my family. I really like the coaches there too. My teammate (Sean Constantine) just committed to them and he's already saying something about UW every day," said Jack. "I'm probably the most familiar with them of all the schools because of how close they are."

After visiting UCLA during the Bruins' Junior Day in February, Jack returned to Westwood in April.

"I went down for their Junior Day to check out the school and the campus, then I went back for their spring practice so I could see how they did things," said Jack. "I watched them word in their individual drills and everything, how they did their team stuff and pretty much just watched what Coach (Jeff) Ulbrich did the whole time."

Prior to visiting UCLA, Jack stopped in the Bay Area to see both Cal and Stanford.

"Stanford seems like they're putting a big priority on their defense in this class. The school is really nice and of course, the academics there, you can't beat them," said Jack. "Cal was nice, they're redoing their stadium and the coaches there are really down to earth. I saw them practice and it's real up-tempo and they're finally getting a lot of new things, with the stadium and the facilities."

Jack said two schools he's hoping will be next to offer were the two schools that squared off in the Rose Bowl in January.

"Wisconsin and Oregon are the two schools I'm hoping will offer and I think could be offering next," said Jack "I know I'm going to Wisconsin's camp and if I do good, I hope they give me an offer. Then I'm going to the Nike Camp at Oregon."

This week has been busy with visitors for Jack and next week will be much the same.

"This week, Purdue came Monday morning and Washington and Washington State came in the afternoon. On Tuesday, Notre Dame was there and so was Nevada and Idaho," said Jack. "Next week, Coach Tui (Marques Tuiasosopo) is coming from UCLA."

Jack said that no decision is imminent for him.

"I'm not even narrowing it down till spring ball is done, and I'll hopefully get it done before the start of the football season, but if not, I'll definitely take all five of my trips so I can make the right decision," said Jack.
