Washington Commit Hears from UCLA

The 6-7 offensive line prospect Trey Adams has been committed to Washington for a year, but he says UCLA would be the second option if anything happened...

The 2014 UCLA recruiting class closed out with five players signing that were at one time committed to another school. 2015 may not reach that level, but it doesn't mean that the Bruins aren't in pursuit of players currently pledged elsewhere. One of those targets is Wenatchee (WA) offensive lineman Trey Adams who is committed to a Pac 12 rival.

"My recruitment has been going pretty good. I've been committed to Washington for about a year now, but a lot of other schools have been in contact."

One of the schools that is showing interest is UCLA, which continues to prioritize offensive linemen and are scouring the country for top tier talent.

"I haven't had a ton of contact with UCLA, but I do get some mail and talk to them on Facebook. I usually talk with Coach Polamalu and sometimes to Coach (Jim) Mora."

The Bruins' recent on-field success has caught the attention of many elite prospects across the country, and that's no different with Adams.

"UCLA is definitely one of the best schools and teams out there. I watched a lot of them last year and they had a good season. If anything were to happen with Washington, the Bruins would be up there and my second choice."

A visit to Westwood is something Mora and company would like to see from Adams, with the UCLA staff looking to return the favor.

"They want me to come down for their spring game, but I'm not going to be able make it. The coaches also said that they wanted to come up and visit me, so we'll see."

While Adams insists that his commitment to Washington is solid, he understands that things don't always work out as planned and other Pac-12 visits could be on tap.

"If things don't work out with the Huskies, I'd definitely be checking out Oregon and the California schools like UCLA and USC."

At 6-7, 270 pounds, the big man has the frame to add another 30 pounds and develop into a dominant tackle at the collegiate level if he can build on his current strengths.

"I've got good feet, long arms, and a strong first punch. I'm a team captain and team leader with a high football IQ."
