Tezino Sees UCLA

The Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian linebacker, Kyahva Tezino, visited UCLA last weekend...

Los Angeles (Calif.) Salesian outside linebacker Kyahva Tezino (6-1, 210), was one of the standouts at the Los Angeles NFTC, earning all-camp honors.

The four-star linebacker has double-digit offers and four schools are still standing out for him.

"Arizona, UCLA, Miami and Arizona State are my top four right now," said Tezino.

Last weekend, before going to the NFTC, Tezino took an unofficial visit to UCLA.

"I liked it a lot," said Tezino. "Coach (Eric) Yarber made me feel at home. He showed me all the stuff that UCLA has got. It was fun."

Tezino also got to meet with head coach Jim Mora.

"Coach Mora is a real good coach, real down to earth and a real good person," said Tezino.

Tezino said he talked about the position the Bruin staff is recruiting him for and also got to see the campus.

"They're recruiting me as a linebacker and they showed me how their linebackers play," said Tezino. "I had visited there before but I had never been in the offices or the locker room so we took a tour."

Tezino is now hoping to see the other schools in his top four.

"I want to try to get out to Arizona and Arizona State," said Tezino. "I'm trying to see if I can get out there during the summer."

With three teammates signing with Arizona last month, Tezino is being recruited by them daily.

"They work on my every single day saying I should come," said Tezino. "I say ‘you'll see on Signing Day."

Academically, he has over a 3.3 and will take the SAT this spring.
