Scout 300 DB Jaylon Redd to Visit UCLA, Close to Deciding

Sep. 6 -- Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) athlete Jaylon Redd talks about his Nebraska official visit, and upcoming trips before committing in September...


There haven't been too many players out West playing better as a two-way athlete this season than Jaylon Redd

Redd is rated as one of the nation's top corner prospects but has been very good as a running back and has the talent to see time on both sides of the ball in college. 

On the recruiting front, Redd took his first official visit this past weekend to check out Nebraska.

"The best part of the visit was the overall environment there," Redd said. "It was such a great atmosphere there there and they have so much tradition. I loved the part when the team scored their first touchdown and everyone let go of their balloons.

"The players on the team were really cool with me as well. I mostly hung with Lamar Jackson because I know him from Cali but all the guys were cool to be around. Lincoln (Nebraska) is definitely way different from SoCal but it's cool and I like how the whole town shuts down for games. After the games there's a whole bunch of celebrations going on so it was a fun experience."

Redd said he enjoyed spending time with the coaches and seeing the rest of the campus.

"Coach Stewart, the DB coach, is my guy there," Redd said. "They like me for corner but they also talked to me about playing some running back as well. Coach Riley is a great guy and seemed very enthusiastic about having me there on campus.

"They have some of the best facilities in the country and were really the first program to be known for their football facilities. I like how the dorms are set up and the classes aren't too far from each other. The trip definitely lived up to my expectations and more."

Next up for Redd will be an official visit much closer to home when he checks out UCLA this coming weekend.  Oregon is set up for (Nov. 12) and Arizona State will get a visit as well.

"I'm actually setting that visit with ASU right now," Redd said. "It will either be next weekend, the 17th or after my commitment date, which is set for September 25, that's my birthday."
