Latest Recruiting Buzz

We're heading into the homestretch of the recruiting season -- just a week and 1/2 before Signing Day, and here's the latest on the prospects left on UCLA's board...

Heading into the second to last weekend before Signing Day we're definitely approaching the last leg of the recruiting race. Here's what's happening with the recruits still left on UCLA's board:

Eddie Vanderdoes, five-star DL, Auburn (Calif.) Placer -- UCLA had an in-home visit with him Thursday and it went particularly well. Even after the USC official visit and earlier in the week USC Athletic Director Pat Haden conducting an in-home visit and watching Vanderdoes' little sister play in her high school basketball game, the Bruins are still looking strong for the elite defensive tackle. Vanderdoes will officially visit Notre Dame this weekend, and then Alabama Feb. 1st. Next week is the last week programs can conduct in-home visits, so it will be the last face-to-face contact UCLA coaches will have with Vanderdoes before Signing Day.

Isaac Savaiinaea, four-star LB, Honolulu (Haw.) Punahou -- The elite linebacker prospect as said he's down to UCLA and Texas A&M, but we're hearing that he's made strong indications he'll commit to UCLA on Signing Day.

Kylie Fitts, four-star DE, Redlands East Valley -- UCLA coaches had an in-home visit with Fitts Wednesday night and it went very well. He'll head off on an official visit to Notre Dame this weekend, but the feeling is still that UCLA is looking very good for him.

Devon Allen, four-star WR, Phoenix (Ariz.) Brophy Prep -- COMMITTED TO OREGON.

Asiantii Woulard, four-star QB, Winter Park (Fla.) -- The quarterback prospect arrived for his official visit to UCLA Thursday, and immediately started Tweeting his impressions, which were clearly positive. It's believe Clemson leads for him, but Woulard likes California, having spent time here for the Elite 11 last summer. A good official visit could be a big factor, especially if UCLA has committed offensive linemen Poasi Moala and John Lopez taking their official visits this weekend, too, and other committed players coming by UCLA on unofficial visits.

Quincy Adeboyejo, three-star WR, Cedar Hill (Tex.) -- The big receiver prospect visited UCLA officially starting Wednesday, and is then expected to officially visit Ole Miss this weekend. He put out some Tweets that indicated he was impressed with his UCLA visit.

Patrick Enewally, three-star DB, Cerritos Gahr -- The recruitment of Enewally has been all over the board recently. It was known he had essentially verbally committed to Washington, until he visited UCLA last weekend, and then essentially told UCLA he was coming to Westwood. He was going to announce Sunday at the West Coast Bowl but he then had an in-home with Washington coaches and flipped back to Washington. We then heard he was wavering again, and was vacillating between UCLA and Washington, having told both programs he was coming. Now, the latest is that he's taking an official visit to Cal this weekend. You can probably expect UCLA to tire of the back-and-forth and drop out of the Enewally race if this continues.

Cornelius Elder, four-star running back, Nashville (Tenn.) Ensworth -- the swift scatback has indicated his finalists are UCLA and Ohio State, but it's believed he'll be a Buckeye. It would probably be considered frosting if UCLA got Elder, since there simply hasn't been much activity in his UCLA recruitment for a while.

Takkarist McKinley, three-star DE, Richmond (Calif.) Kennedy -- The defensive end from Northern Cal is still verbally committed to Cal, but has been looking around. He visited Washington State officially, and could visit UCLA February 1st. It could depend on his academics.

Soft Commits:

Myles Jack, four-star LB, Bellevue (Wash.) -- He'll visit hometown Washington today, and has plans to visit Florida State February 1st. The feeling is that he probably won't get to the FSU visit, and it's also believed that Washington isn't near the threat once believed.

Kenny Lacy, four-star OL, Phoenix Mountain Pointe -- He'll officially visit Arkansas this weekend.

Deon Hollins, four-star LB, Missouri City (Tex.) Marshall -- He'll officially visit Notre Dame this weekend.

Christian Morris, four-star OL, Memphis (Tenn.) East -- He visited Tennessee and has indicated he'll ultimately decide between UCLA and Tennessee on Signing Day.

While you can never predict how visits to other schools will influence a committed player, We have enough information on all four to feel pretty confident all four will sign with UCLA February 6th.

Cameron Judge, four-star LB, Westlake Village Oaks Christian -- the UCLA-committed linebacker is deciding between UCLA and ASU. UCLA hadn't shown him a great deal of love over the last couple of months, and he decided to look into other options. A UCLA coach is expected to visit Oaks Christian today.

We've heard there are potentially other prospects of interest to UCLA but, for many reasons, can't reveal who they are. We think that these recruits are almost certainly long shots for UCLA at this point.
