Bolu Ecstatic About Bruins

OCT. 5 -- The Fresno (Calif.) Clovis North running back and UCLA commitment, Bolu Olorunfunmi, talked about his official visit to UCLA...

Having been committed to UCLA since March, Fresno (Calif.) Clovis North running back Bolu Olorunfunmi didn't need to be wowed by the Bruins on his official visit this past weekend.

But he was anyway.

"It was a cool experience," said Olorunfunmi. "I've done a lot of that stuff already, like tour the campus, but I just noticed again that they treat you like family, like real family."

Hosted by Ryan Davis, Olorunfunmi also spent time on the visit with Osa Masina and Tevita Halalilo, the other two official visitors.

"Osa was there and Tevita (another UCLA commit) and I were working on Osa a little bit," said Olorunfunmi. "I think when he's done with the trip, he'll be leaning towards UCLA more."

Olorunfunmi also talked with Keisean Lucier-South and Josh Rosen at the UCLA-Utah game on Saturday night.

"That was my first real time at the Rose Bowl, my first complete experience," said Olorunfunmi. "I was ecstatic being there. It was amazing how much the crowd really was a factor and how they have a fan base that supports them like that. I'm very excited to be there."

Olorunfunmi also got a chance to talk with running backs coach Kennedy Polamalu and head coach Jim Mora.

"I pretty much sat down with Coach KP and went over the stuff and the basics of how things worked in their offense, like pass protection," said Olorunfunmi. "He was just telling me to get ready for when I come, to get off to a fast and quick start."

Olorunfunmi had other offers and schools come after him after he committed to UCLA, but he said he's done with the recruiting process.

"This is going to be my only visit, I think I'm good with this one visit and UCLA," said Olorunfunmi.
