Fresno (Calif.) Clovis North running back Bolu Olorunfunmi (5-11, 212), is one of the top offensive playmakers in Central California.

With a handful of offers, Olorunfunmi is planning to get out to a number of schools in the spring, as well as camps, to make himself visible and potentially add more offers.

Earlier this month, Olorunfunmi visited USC for the Trojans' Junior Day then made a stop at UCLA on his way back to the Central Valley.

"I loved it at USC," said Olorunfunmi. "I was there last year, but to come back and to see it coming back a year later, all the improvements they made, it was really nice. I camped at Washington last year, so I love the new staff. Coach Sark (Steve Sarkisian) said they would come out in the spring and we'll see what goes on from there."

Olorunfunmi got a chance to talk with Johnny Nansen, the Trojans running back coach, as well as offensive coordinator Clay Helton.

"I had a long chat with Coach Nansen, he remembered who I was from camp and then I talked with the OC, Coach Helton," said Olorunfunmi.

After the time at USC, Olorunfunmi drove up to Westwood and had a short visit with the UCLA coaches.

"It was nice at UCLA," said Olorunfunmi. "I love UCLA. They have plans to build new facilities. I got to meet with Coach (DeShaun) Foster, the assistant running backs coach, Coach (Angus) McClure and Coach (Jeff) Ulbrich. They said they really like me and want to come see me in the spring."

Olorunfunmi said he plans to get back down to UCLA for a junior day, so he can spend more time on campus.

"I'm planning on going back down to UCLA to spend more time seeing the school and talking with the coaches. I'm actually planning on going back to both schools. Both UCLA and USC are great programs."

Olorunfunmi said he also wants to get up to the East Bay and visit California.

"I'm going to their Junior Day at Cal and looking forward to talking with the coaches there a little more," said Olorunfunmi.

Olorunfunmi has offers from Nevada, Northwestern, Fresno State and Eastern Washington.

"But I think UCLA, USC or Oregon could be the next ones to offer," said Olorunfunmi. "I'm going to camp at UCLA and USC and maybe Washington again."

Olorunfunmi also plans to camp at the Los Angeles NFTC as well as the Pylon Elite 7on7 in Las Vegas.

Academically, he has a 3.3 and will take both the SAT and the ACT in the spring.
