UCLA changed that by offering Delp and the lineman and his father took a visit to the Bruin campus on Saturday.
|From Twitter, Delp on Campus with Xavier Su'a-Filo. Delp wrote: "One of my idols I look up to. #56."|
"This time, I got to tour the campus, hang out with the coaches and I got a great feel for the University. My dad loved it too and Coach (Jim) Mora and (Offensive Line) Coach (Adrian) Klemm were very up front with us about my role and how I would fit in. It's a great fit academically as well. I want to major in Communications with an emphasis on Broadcasting and UCLA is very strong in that area.
"Coach Klemm said they're only taking 2-3 offensive linemen and he wants me to fill one of those spots. I know they want Damien (Mama), too, and if we both went to UCLA and Viane (Talamaivao), too, that would be one of the top line classes in the nation."
With the visit out of the way, is Delp, the nation's #19-ranked offensive guard, thinking about making an early decision?
"We'll see about that," Delp said. "I've been talking about that with my family tonight (Saturday). We'll just see how I feel about everything in the morning. I really liked UCLA a lot, though. It's a school I've always followed so I'm just going to sleep on it tonight and we'll go from there."
