Bellevue (Wash.) three-star offensive guard Morgan Richey got his first Pac-12 offer on Wednesday, one that came out of nowhere.

"UCLA just offered," said Richey. "You have no clue how stoked I am. It was out of the blue."

Richey had been watching UCLA this season, with former Wolverine teammate Myles Jack playing for the Bruins and a couple of other former Wolverines being walk-on's to the Bruins.

But he didn't even know he was on he Bruins' radar.

"I talked to Coach (Steve) Broussard and he said I would talk to Coach (Adrian) Klemm and Coach (Jim) Mora soon," said Richey. "This was the first time I'd really talked to them. I had visited there my sophomore year just for fun, but I'll go down again now."

A number of other Pac-12 schools, including both in-state schools, have been talking with Richey and he hopes this offer could send more Pac-12 offers his way.

"I've been in touch but now hopefully they do offer," said Richey.

Despite the first Pac-12 offer, Richey isn't in a rush to commit anywhere.

"I'm definitely going to take my time and I need to get down to UCLA first," said Richey.

Richey is a three-year starter for the Wolverines, the top team in Washington, and has helped them win the last two state titles, and has yet to lose a high school football game.
