UCLA Could be Option for Wariboko

Jul. 2 -- Oklahoma City (Okla.) Casady defensive back Max Wariboko explains his recruiting status after not entering the Iowa class as planned...

Editor's Note: From what we understand, UCLA hasn't been recruiting Wariboko heavily for some time now.

Oklahoma City (Okla.) Casady cornerback Max Wariboko was set to make his college decision a few days ago between UCLA, Iowa, and Louisville. He had narrowed down his offer sheet to that trio of schools, with an announcement planned.

However, the school of his choosing could not fit him in the class at this time.

"I was going to commit to Iowa but they filled up their spots at my position," Wariboko said. "I'm staying in contact with them, though. A spot could open up still according to them and I could get in. I'll keep them in consideration. There's a lot of playing time available for them at cornerback, and that's a big thing for me."

The Bruins are also still a possibility.

"UCLA is a great school," Wariboko shared. "I'm very close with Demetrius Martin, their defensive backs coach. My brother Josh is up there so there's a high comfort level there."

The Cardinals were the third finalist for Wariboko, and they remain in the mix.

"Louisville was my first offer," he pointed out. "I have a strong relationship with the coach that recruits my area. I speak to him and Garrick McGee often. They're great people. Louisville has the best fan base out of all of them. I like my time there."

Wariboko detailed the approach he will have with his recruiting process moving forward.

"I'm just looking at everybody," he admitted. "I'm still looking at those three schools hard, but I'm open to everyone. I'm going to take more visits and get ready for the season. I'm not sure what visits will take, but they will most likely be official visits in the Fall."
