Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame safety Koa Farmer was one of the top performers during the 40 yard dash at UCLA's Elite Camp on Friday, clocking in at a 4.50 40.

Farmer said that's not as fast as he can go, and that he has actually clocked a 4.4 40 in the past. Still, he was pleased with the way the camp went.

"I thought I performed well," Farmer said. "I just wanted to come out and compete against the best, and Coach Angus McClure really wanted me to come out."

Farmer said that UCLA has told him that they're reviewing his tape and that an offer could be coming down soon. He's expecting to hear from McClure again this week.

"If UCLA offered, they'd probably be in my top two," Farmer said. "I'm obviously still committed to California, but I'm open to taking visits and hearing what other schools have to say."

He said that the Cal coaches have been very understanding, and are open to him taking visits and being recruited by other schools.

Farmer said academics are very important for his ultimate decision, and says that Washington and Vanderbilt could also factor into his recruitment over the next few months.

The 6'1, 195 prospect says that UCLA actually sees him as a safety/linebacker hybrid, depending on how he grows, and he likes that potential option.

"I like playing in the box and hitting guys," Farmer said. "That'd be a good fit for me."

Farmer said he could potentially visit UCLA again down the road, but isn't sure yet of any set plans.
