Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive lineman Nico Falah, the West's top offensive lineman, has come up with his top five.

"I made my top five," said Falah. "USC, UCLA, Oregon, Cal and Oklahoma."

From that list, Falah said the two local schools are standing out.

"USC and UCLA are pretty much tied, and the other three are in order (Oregon, Cal then Oklahoma)," said Falah.

Falah said the next step will be determining where he'll take his official visits.

"I don't know where I'm going to take my visits," said Falah. "And I don't know if I should take officials to USC or UCLA, because I can visit any day."

It's been a big week for Falah, who on Monday, was invited to The Opening in Beaverton, the second year in a row the Braves have a player selected, with Falah's former teammate, Bryce Treggs, going last year.

The Opening will be the last camp for Falah before he embarks on his senior season.

Following a decision on the official visits, will be a decision on when he'll announce, and he's no longer planning to wait till Signing Day.

"I'm not going to wait until Signing Day anymore," said Falah. "At the latest, it will be at the U.S. Army Bowl."

The four-star is ranked #2 nationally by Scout.com as an offensive tackle.
