OL Orland Umana on His UCLA Offer

Oct. 19 -- Sacramento (Calif.) Grant offensive lineman Orlando Umana landed a new offer from UCLA and could officially visit in January...

Sacramento (Calif.) Grant offensive lineman Orlando Umana has one official visit under his belt but plans to take four more.


Umana visited Washington last month.

In December, he'll check out Arizona and Utah.

Then come January, potential visits to CaliforniaUCLA and Washington State are being discussed.

For now, Umana is enjoying the recruiting process and the attention the Pac-12 is paying.

"All of the Pac-12 offers are standing out to me," said Umana.  "I'd say that Washington and Washington State are recruiting me the hardest."

Umana visited Washington in September during his bye weekend and enjoyed his time in Seattle.

"It was really nice at UW," said Umana.  "I really liked it.  Coach Pete (Chris Petersen), he's a good coach and (offensive line) Coach (Chris) Strausser is awesome."

Meanwhile, Clay McGuire is recruiting Umana at Washington State and working on getting him up for an official visit.

"Coach McGuire is recruiting me and they want me to take a visit in December or January," said Umana.

UCLA and Cal are two of his most recent offers and both schools are trying to get him to take a trip.

"I talk to Coach (Adrian) Klemm at UCLA, he's recruiting me and I think I'm going to take a visit there in January," said Umana.  "Cal, I hear from a lot of coaches and I'm going to try and get over there, maybe for an official in January."

He'll resume his trip schedule in December.

"I've set up my visits to Utah and Arizona for December," said Umana.  "Then it's probably UCLA or Cal, one of those for sure, or Washington State."

Arizona has been picking up their recruitment of him.

"Coach (Jim) Michalzik is recruiting me and he's a good coach," said Umana.

Utah is doing the same, using a former teammate of Umana's to help out.

"Coach (Jim) Harding is recruiting me at Utah and I hear from (former Grant teammate) Darrin Paulo about Utah," said Umana.  "Darrin is recruiting me a little, and he'll tell me now and then how it goes out there."

Umana doesn't plan to decide anytime soon.

"I will wait until Signing Day to decide," said Umana.  "I don't have a favorite right now.  I'm pretty wide open."

Umana said that guard is where he'll likely end up in college.

"I'm 6-4, 320, right now and everyone is recruiting me as a guard," said Umana.
