Bruins Will Watch Ajeigbe

The Norco (Calif.) running back, Joseph Ajeigbe, is on UCLA's radar for the fall...

Norco (Calif.) running back Joseph Ajeigbe (5-9, 205), is preparing for a week-long visit to Big Ten and ACC country.

"On Wednesday, we're leaving to go check out Northwestern, so I can see how I like it out there, and then we leave Northwestern to go down to North Carolina to see Duke, and then see the school," said Ajeigbe.

The Wildcats and Blue Devils have both offered Ajeigbe, as well as Arizona and Air Force.

"I'm hoping to get out to Arizona in August," said Ajeigbe.

Ajeigbe is looking forward to his trips to Northwestern and Duke, and good visits there could call for a return this fall.

"If I get out there and like the schools and everything, I might do official visits there so I can see how they do stuff on game day and get the full experience," said Ajeigbe.

Ajeigbe said he also plans to take an official visit to Arizona this fall.

The three-star has also talked with a number of other schools who said they'd be watching the beginning of his senior year.

"Boise State, Oregon State, Minnesota and UCLA have all talked with me and are going to watch my season, so we'll see what happens," said Ajeigbe.

Ajeigbe said he doesn't have a leader, but that both Northwestern and Duke are standing out.

"I've built better relationships with the coaches at Duke and Northwestern," said Ajeigbe. "I'm still kind of open, but I really like Duke. And the coaches from Northwestern seem pretty cool."

Ajeigbe and his Norco team will begin their fall practice on August 6th and start the season with an inter-sectional game against Los Angeles (Calif.) Crenshaw.
