Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes four-star defensive end Benning Potoae will take his first official visit next weekend.

"Benning will leave on Thursday to go to UCLA for his first official visit," said Lakes head coach Dave Miller. "They wanted him to come down for the USC game. His mom and dad will be going down with him."

Potoae has focused on three Pac-12 schools, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington.

"Oregon State and Coach (Joe) Seumalo are working on setting up an official visit with Benning for either December or January," said Miller.

The homestate Huskies, where his older brother Sione played, will also get an official visit from him.

"He'll definitely be visiting Washington officially," said Miller. "Coach Pete (Chris Petersen) and Coach (Pete) Kwiatkowski talked with us about him coming up, probably in January."

The No. 1 defensive prospect in Washington and the No. 2 overall prospect in 2015, Potoae is the No. 20 defensive end in the country and the No. 194 overall player nationally.
