Delp Waiting for Dust to Settle

2014 Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch offensive lineman Kammy Delp has two favorites, but is waiting on coaching changes to settle down to see if he has any others...

2014 Pomona (Calif.) Diamond Ranch offensive lineman Kammy Delp was at Corona (Calif.) Centennial high school on Friday night wearing a USC hat.

But don't read too much into his choice of apparel, Delp said. He was only wearing the Cardinal and Gold cap to support his cousin Viane Talamaivao, a USC commit who was playing in the CIF-SS Inland Division Championship.

Delp, himself, has put the recruiting process on hold for the time being.

Why? The coaching carousel that seemingly has no end in sight.

Delp tells Scout his top two schools remain UCLA and Arizona State, but he doesn't know who else currently fits into his list of favorites due to the coaching changes at Boise State, USC, and Washington.

The three-star offensive guard recently took his official visit to Tempe (Ariz.) to see the Sun Devils. "[I] had a lot of fun when they played Arizona," Delp explained on Friday night, "Pretty much just the atmosphere, loved it out there how they treated me and their players. Loved the way [ASU coach] Todd Graham got after it."

Delp also likes what's going on in Westwood, since the announcement UCLA coach Jim Mora has extended his contract with the Bruins and offensive line coach Adrian Klemm will be returning.

"Coach Mora and Coach Klemm coming back, it's pretty important," Delp explained. "I was pretty nervous to find out where Klemm was going to go, but Coach Klemm is here so I'm pretty excited to see him. It was pretty big that he's staying at UCLA."

Delp says he's had a connection with Klemm since his first time camping at UCLA.

"He's real honest, a lot of coaches are honest, but he really lays it out there what it's like to come to their school, how life after college, and how the degree can change your life from UCLA," Delp said. "It's pretty crazy. I mean, I personally liked him from the start, had a good vibe because of how he trains people."

USC coach Steve Sarkisian and his staff recruited Delp when they were at Washington. Now, Delp says he waits and hopes for an offer from Sarkisian at USC. "It's pretty big for them to be all in Southern California," said Delp. "[It's] another family thing going on."

Asked if he feels he could be close to a Trojan offer? "We'll see," he said.

Delp is close with USC commits Talamaivao, Toa Lobendahn, Austin Maloata, and Jordan Austin.

Delp had planned to take an official visit to Boise State, but since Chris Petersen's departure for Washington, he has decided to pull that visit from his five-officials list.

There's now a possibility he may take an official visit to Washington.

"I want to wait until this thing settles down so I can narrow down my choices before the [All-Star] games," Delp said.

Delp will be playing in the Semper-Fi Bowl in Los Angeles on Jan. 5.
