Ihenancho Excited by UCLA Offer

The Gardena (Calif.) Serra defensive back, Glen Ihenacho, is close to 20 scholarship offers, and picked up one from UCLA, which he says is "big"...

Just how loaded is the Cavalier program? Safety Glen Ihenacho has almost 20 offers on the table, including those from 9 or more Pac-12 programs, yet that only ranks him third on his own team behind corner Adoree Jackson and linebacker Dwight Williams.

Ihenacho picked up four more offers this week with one of the schools standing out for him.

"I got UCLA, San Jose State, Arizona and Fresno State," Ihenacho said. "I'm excited about all the offers I get that the UCLA one is big. It's the local school and, before I knew much about any of the colleges recruiting me, I already knew a lot about UCLA.

"I went up for a spring practice with all the guys and I have visited a few other times with my family. I had a relative that went there years ago so it's a good school. Coach Meat (Demetrice Martin) is the one who offered me and we've been building a pretty solid relationship. It will only get stronger now and I have a lot of interest in UCLA for sure."

Ihenacho said he's not close to naming favorites or even figuring out his official visit plans right now.

"Miami is the only school I know I'm for sure going to take an official visit to," Ihenacho said. "I want to do some un-official visits in the summer and where I visit will help me figure out where my officials will be. I would like to tag along with friends on some un-officials and that will slim down my choices for officials. "I'll probably tag a long with Jaleel (Wadood) the next time he visits Arizona State. I would like to take un-officials to my West Coast offers and then use the official visits for schools on the other side of the country. At this point, Miami is the only one for sure bit I want to take all of them if I can."

Ihenacho had a solid showing the recent NIKE Camp in Oakland and tested very well running a 4.48-40 (electronic time) and jumped 38" in the vertical. At 5-11, 185 pounds, he's solid in run support but really excels in pass coverage where his athleticism really shows up. He's rangy, has good ball skills and has the athleticism to cover a lot of ground in the secondary.
