Gallatin (Tenn.) Station Camp receiver Josh Malone headed out West, where he'll be spending a lot of time in the next couple of weeks, to camp at UCLA on Friday night.

Prior to the camp, Malone spent time on campus with a few UCLA coaches, checking out the school.

The No. 17-ranked receiver by, Malone was one of the top performers at UCLA's Elite Camp.

"It was great, getting to see myself performing against the top players on the West Coast," said Malone. "You don't really get to experience that out East, so it was a really good experience. The DBs are athletic and lean. In the South, it's a little more physical and they chatter at you a whole bunch, but they have some nice DBs out here."

Before the camp, Malone toured the UCLA campus, getting a chance to see one of the schools that has offered him.

"The campus is beautiful, it really is," said Malone. "I've always thought it was when I've seen the pictures. It has a great campus life and it's just great."

Malone spent his time with receivers coach Eric Yarber, offensive line coach Adrian Klemm and head coach Jim Mora.

"I mainly was with Coach Yarbs, Coach Klemm and Coach Mora," said Malone. "We had a good conversation and I'm definitely looking out West and keeping my options open. I'm looking for a place that will help me develop as a person and as a receiver."

Malone said he's uncertain if he'll visit UCLA officially in the fall.

"I'll narrow it down in the next couple of months," said Malone. "A lot of the schools are coming at me hard so I have to decide."

Malone will be at the B2G Elite Camp next weekend, which will be held at UCLA and then the following week, he'll be in Beaverton at The Opening.
