Josh Falo Talks UCLA Offer

Aug. 19 -- The Sacramento (Calif.) Inderkum 2017 tight end, Josh Falo, talked about what the UCLA offer meant to him...

Sacramento (Calif.) Inderkum tight end Josh Falo (6-5, 220) was one of the 2017 prospects UCLA offered in June after getting a chance to see him during the evaluation period.

The four-star, ranked No. 6 nationally at his position in the 2017 class, has double-digit offers, but the Bruins were one of his newest offers.

“Coach Angus (McClure) is recruiting me for UCLA and I really like him a lot,” said Falo. “He’s really open and I like that about him.”

Falo visited UCLA in April and was at the Spring Showcase at the Rose Bowl and he liked what he saw in Westwood.

“Everything is good over there at UCLA,” said Falo. “The whole school is nice and it’s a good school to go to and they have a good education.”

The Bruins joined Arizona State, California, Colorado, Nevada, Oregon State, San Jose State, UNLV, Utah, Washington and Eastern Washington in offering Falo.

More schools are interested in Falo too.

USC could offer after my first game,” said Falo. “I went to their camp and did well. I’m also hearing from Missouri, Florida State, Alabama, Washington State, Oregon and Oklahoma.”

From the offers, Washington, Utah and Oregon State are also standing out to him along with UCLA as well as Colorado.

Falo’s older brother, N.J., is a freshman at Colorado and his oldest brother, Nathan, signed with Buffs head coach Mike MacIntyre when he was at San Jose State.

“Colorado is a good school in general and with my brother going there, it would be a blessing to join him,” said Falo. “I have a good relationship with Coach Mac.”

Falo is being recruited for both sides of the ball and he’s open to either side.

“I’m being recruited mostly as an athlete because I’m playing both ways,” said Falo. “I don’t really care which side I play. Whatever gets me on the field, I don’t have a preference. I’m getting recruited more as an outside linebacker for defense and then tight end for offense. It’s a tough decision.”

But if he had to choose a side, tight end would probably win.

“I’m probably leaning more towards offense,” said Falo.

Halfway through his prep career, Falo already has double-digit offers, something he had never envisioned.

“It was crazy when I hit double digit offers,” said Falo. “When I got my first one, I thought that might be the only one but its been a blessing. I’ll take all of my official visit before I decide so I have a long way.”
