"I do like UCLA," Steffy said. "Coach Bernardi came out here and looked at me. I really like the program at UCLA. It suits a drop-back passer like myself well. Coach Axman has also talked with me, and I really like Coach Dorrell. He is a guy I could play for. UCLA is an up-and-coming program."
A strong showing at the Penn State Nike Camp helped elevate his stock, where he performed well alongside highly-heralded quarterbacks Chad Henne and Anthony Morelli. "I think that really helped me," Steffy said. "I was able to compete with them, and I already knew them, so we just made each other better that day."
With the list of offers growing, Steffy is in no hurry to make a decision. "As of now, no one has completely jumped out at me. I don't know if I will hold out until the end until Signing Day, but I know I am not ready to make my decision."
Steffy will be playing basketball at the Big Time Tournament in Las Vegas next month and could visit UCLA when that is done. "I know I plan to take one of my official visits to UCLA, but I am going to try and see the campus when I am in Las Vegas, if I can."
On the football side of it, when he is done with his East Coast tour, Steffy plans to throw at the Purdue Elite Camp, and then in 7-on-7 leagues, before concentrating on his senior year.
He has a 2.4 GPA and scored a 940 on his SAT.
