Bruins Watching Modster Closely

Dec. 9 -- UCLA is keeping a close watch on the Las Flores (Calif.) Tesoro 2016 quarterback Devon Modster...

Las Flores (Calif.) Tesoro 2016 four-star quarterback Devon Modster (6-2, 215) has one Pac-12 offer but with his junior film getting out, more schools are showing Modster interest.

“Since last week was the start of the recruiting period. I’ve talked with UCLA and California came by the other day and they were talking to my coach,” said Modster.

Boise State, where his brother Sean plays, and USC are other schools that Modster has interest in while Arizona was the first to offer him.

Cal came by his school, with offensive line coach Zach Yenser swinging by the campus.

“Coach Yenser, the offensive line coach came by and they’re pretty interested,” said Modster.

UCLA was at his game earlier this season and he was at the UCLA-USC game last month.

“I’d been talking to Coach (Taylor) Mazzone a lot and building a bond with him,” said Modster. “I went to a couple of their camps and I went to the USC game.”

Modster said his time at the Rose Bowl that night was an enjoyable one.

“The UCLA-USC game was a lot of fun,” said Modster. “They had a lot of fans and it seemed like a great place to be around. It was a good vibe and with those being the top two schools in California, it was a pretty cool game to be at.”

Modster said he thinks a UCLA offer could be nearing while Cal is more likely to wait.

“I think UCLA is pretty close to offering and Cal just wants to see me throw in person,” said Modster.

With several Pac-12 schools landing top-tier quarterbacks as part of a very good 2015 crop, Modster isn’t worried about who he might follow.

“As long as I get to compete and have a chance to compete, I’ll be fine,” said Modster.

Modster doesn’t anticipate any early decision in his recruitment.

“I want to take some unofficial visits and check out schools and get to know the coaches wherever I’m being recruited,” said Modster. “I want to go through the process a little.”

Modster has a 3.4 and took the SAT earlier this fall.
