Flurry of Receiver Recruiting News

On Tuesday, UCLA extended offers to three local receivers, with reports surfacing of an expected unofficial visit and increased interest in the number one receiver in the country...

On Monday, BRO published a story on the current state of receiver recruiting, with the sense being that UCLA was doing a poor job of getting in early on receiver recruits.

Naturally, on Tuesday, UCLA extended a flurry of offers to California receivers, with the possibility of one more coming tomorrow when Fontana (Calif.) Summit receiver Erik Brown visits campus unofficially.

Brown, who has long been thought to be a UCLA lean, could potentially commit on that visit, or very soon after. The 44th ranked receiver in the country, Brown (6'1, 175) has been very good through the early part of the spring camp circuit.

UCLA offered Elk Grove (Calif.) Consumnes receiver Alex Van Dyke early Tuesday morning. Van Dyke is the 34th ranked receiver in the country, stands 6'4, 200 pounds, and has already unofficially visited UCLA.

The Bruins extended another offer to Corona (Calif.) Centennial receiver Barry Ware (6'3, 205). Ware, a three star, actually said that there's a good chance he'll commit by Friday, but he has to talk it over with his dad. We have heard that Ware could be a longshot to get admitted to UCLA.

To close out the offers, UCLA also extended one to El Cerrito (Calif.) receiver Jalen Harvey (6'0, 175). Harvey, ranked 57th in the country, is a teammate of UCLA recruits (and reported leans) linebacker D.J. Calhoun and cornerback Adarius Pickett.

Finally, Greg Biggins reported today that number one ranked receiver Michiah Quick is receiving increased interest from UCLA and could schedule an unofficial visit soon. The Fresno (Calif.) Central receiver could be an elite cornerback as well. Jeff Ulbrich is now recruiting him in Fresno, and apparently has drawn rave reviews from local coaches.
