Lasley Still Solid to Bruins

The Gardena (Calif.) Serra receiver, Jordan Lasley, said he's all Bruin, despite other schools still trying with him...

Gardena (Calif.) Serra receiver Jordan Lasley (6-2, 187), is finally getting his shot to flourish with the Cavs offense.

He's caught four touchdown passes in the first two games for the Cavs, even if the numbers aren't as spectacular as he would like.

"I only had like five catches for 96 yards and three touchdowns in our last game," said Lasley. "They're the weakest best stats ever. I guess I'm making my catches count though."

The UCLA commit has to share the touches with Adoree Jackson, the West's top prospect, and Jalen Greene is also a dual-threat quarterback.

But the Cavs are winning and that's all Lasley cares about.

"We won the state last year but this year we want the whole thing (Open Division)," said Lasley.

After a tremendous spring and summer, that earned him a number of offers, despite limited catches last fall, Lasley is settling into his role.

"I'm getting into a groove and it actually feels good," said Lasley. "I'm more in sync with the offense and it's really like my first year with Serra. It's like a real difference when you have a whole year with your quarterback. It makes a big difference I just think having a lot of success in the offseason, going to camps, everything made it pretty easy now. I didn't feel like I had a great year last year, but now I'm running my routes and it's easier."

Lasley also finds the advantage of going against Jackson in practice every day helps him.

"I feel like going up against Adoree and Nacho (three-star safety Glen Ihenacho) every day just makes me better," said Lasley. "There are not too many DBs around in Southern California better than those guys. Every time I go against another DB, it's like he's weak compared to Adoree."

Lasley said schools are still in touch with him, and he may take a couple of visits.

"Indiana is still in contact with me, Utah is too and USC has picked up a little bit harder on me. Washington has also gotten in touch with me but that's about it," said Lasley. "I'm probably going to visit Utah and Indiana but nothing is set up right now. We have a bye week after our fifth game so I'll look into a visit then. UCLA coaches said it's fine to take visits."

Lasley said he speaks with receivers coach Eric Yarber and Adrian Klemm, who recruits Serra, frequently.

"Coach Yarbs calls me once a week and I talk to Coach Klemm frequently," said Lasley. "Both are recruiting me. They want me to come up to the next game, I couldn't go to the first one because we had a game. I know I'll be at the Cal game too."

Lasley said he's rock solid to the Bruins and can't wait to be involved in their offense.

"My commitment to UCLA is very solid. I love Westwood. I love the coaching staff. It's not a soft verbal at all, it's a solid verbal," said Lasley. "Brett Hundley, he's great, man. He makes a lot of good reads, throws the ball well at a high level. Being committed to UCLA, it makes me feel comfortable to have a quarterback like that to play with."

Lasley is also doing his part with his teammates that are UCLA targets, one of eight players on the Cavs with a Bruin offer.

"I'm doing a lot of recruiting to get those dudes over there," said Lasley. "So many schools are coming over there to Serra to recruit them, but I'm trying every day."

This weekend, Lasley and Serra will face Sherman Oaks (Calif.) Notre Dame.
