UCLA In The Mix For Jaylon Redd

Sept. 24 -- Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) junior athlete Jaylon Redd landed another offer on Monday and will be taking a few unofficial visits later in the fall...

It's a good year for skill talent out West in the 2017 class and Jaylon Redd is among the top athletes in the region. 

Redd is a two-way player who has the ability to play corner, slot receiver and return punts and kicks in college. He's currently rated the No. 154 player in the country and is having a very solid junior season.

"The season is going good so far," Redd said. "I'm not getting a lot of chances to make plays at corner so I'm trying to make an impact on offense. Teams don't throw my way too much. I play the other teams best receiver and try and shut him down and then just make plays on offense when teams don't kick it to me or throw my way."

Redd picked up offer No. 8 from Boise State on Monday and had a chance to check out one of the first schools that offered him back in the spring over the weekend.

"I went to the UCLA game to see them play BYU," Redd said. "That was a good game, I had a lot of fun being there. I was able to go in to the locker room before and after the game and the players were so hyped, it was live in there, I loved it.

"This was my first game of the year so it was a great experience. I'm planning on going to the USC- Washington game next weekend and I'm going to try and get out to Washington when they host Arizona State (Nov. 14). I don't have a set date to get out to ASU but I want to try and get out there and watch a game as well."

Redd said he has no plans to make an early decision at this point.

"I want to go through the process and take my trips," Redd said. "I want to take my official visits and I'll work on narrowing things down over the summer. I'm hearing from a lot of schools that haven't offered yet but are showing interest including LSU, Arizona, Oregon State and Stanford.

"As for my offers, the schools talking to me the most are probably UCLA, USC, Washington, Washington State and Boise State. I don't have any leaders right now, I'm just enjoying the process and looking forward to seeing how it all plays out."
