Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure 2015 quarterback Ricky Town (6-4, 200), is one of the top players at his position in the region for his class.

Holding offers from Miami and UCLA, Town has a number of other schools showing interest in him.

"Arizona talks to me a lot, Washington is definitely interested, I grew up a Cal fan and would definitely consider them and Stanford said they were going to bring their coaches down," said Town. "Alabama said the same thing."

Town said Miami and UCLA, though, have been the most consistent in contact, making him a primary target for each program.

"I got the early offers from Miami and UCLA and I think those are two great schools and football programs," said Town. "It's exciting, especially this early, to get offers from those schools. I'm just staying focused."

Miami was the first to offer, and Town said the offer caught him off guard.

"It was a little crazy, I was kind of like in the twilight zone," said Town. "Growing up, I watched their games and knew of their history, so potentially to be a part of that is crazy."

UCLA had Town on campus last month.

"I went to UCLA for a tour for their mini-Junior Day and it went well and it was fun," said Town. "Both the Mazzone's (offensive coordinator Noel and inside receivers coach Taylor) are recruiting me and I'm really interested in them."

Town said he may camp at Miami and UCLA, but will for sure be in Tuscaloosa.

"I know I'm going to Stanford for some spring practices and I know I'll be camping at Alabama," said Town.

Town will camp at the San Francisco Elite 11 and the Oakland NFTC as well.

The only 7on7 he plans to play is with St. Bonaventure, the reigning Marmonte League champions.

"I'm just sticking with St. Bonnie football this spring and working with my teammates," said Town.

Last fall, Town led the Seraphs to their first league title in their first year in the Pac-5, where they also got the #1-seed and advanced to the CIF-SS Pac-5 semifinals.

But he knows he's still got things to work on.

"For me, the biggest improvements I need to make, I'd say there are a lot of things," said Town. "I need to get things going faster, and mastering the offense. I need to do a better job at verbal leadership. It was a little different this last season but now that I've been here for a year, I need to take that and lead my team."

Academically, Town has a 3.5 and plans to wait until his junior year to take the SAT and ACT.

Brandon is in his ninth year with 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.
