Bruins Watching Ihenacho

UCLA is keeping an eye on the Gardena (Calif.) Serra safety, Duke Ihenacho...

Gardena (Calif.) Serra safety Glen Ihenacho (6-0, 195), had a strong showing at the NLA Elite 7on7 over the weekend.

And in the days following, Ihenacho got his first offer, from Washington State.

Several other Pac-12 schools are interested in Ihenacho too.

"Washington, Oregon State, Cal, Oregon and UCLA are all talking to me," said Ihenacho. "Colorado too, all the coaches coached my brother (at San Jose State), and that's where Oregon State came from, Coach (Brent) Brennan recruited my school when he was at San Jose State. Utah is recruiting me too, as a corner."

Ihenacho had his older brother, Carl and Duke, play at San Jose State and both ended up being all-conference defenders and are both in the NFL.

Both were lightly recruited, but Glen is hoping that changes.

"San Jose State hasn't talked to me that much and not been after me that hard, but there are a lot of other schools that have," said Ihenacho. "We'll see what happens more in the spring."

Ihenacho said that safety is where he wants to play in college.

"I want to play safety, but I'm open to cornerback," said Ihenacho. "But I prefer safety."

Ihenacho helped the Cavs win the CIF State D-II championship as a junior and is part of a loaded defense in 2013.

Academically, Ihenacho will be taking the SAT and ACT in the spring and has a 3.3 GPA.

Brandon is in his ninth year with Scout.com and FOXSportsNext, currently as a National Recruiting Analyst and West Regional Manager. Prior to joining the Scout Recruiting Team, he was a team recruiting writer.  He's been covering recruiting for the Scout Network since 2003.
