UPDATED 1/28: UCLA's Weekend Official Visitors

Jan. 28 -- Breaking news -- There is another surprise official visitor for the weekend, a four-star receiver committed to another Pac-12 school...

Scout's Brandon Huffman has learned of another UCLA official visitor for the weekend -- Ty Jones, the Utah receiver prospect that is verbally committed to Washington.


Scout's Blair Angulo on Jones: 

The four-star wide receiver is committed to Washington and picked up an offer from the Bruins on Friday when he arrived for his visit. Jones visited UCLA last spring and attended a practice, but didn't get a whole lot of attention. When the Bruins were in Provo during the season, assistant coach Demetrice Martin saw Jones in action but was primarily at that game to check out the opposing team's star, safety Chaz Ah You.


Jones appears to be very solid to the Huskies.  He landed an offer from Ohio State shortly after a great week at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl and that didn['t budge him from his Washington commitment. We'll see if this is anything more than just a pre-Signing Day trip to Los Angeles...


BREAKING (1/27, 12:00 P.M.): Stephen Carr, the five-star running back from Fontana (Calif.) Summit, who is verbally committed to USC, will officially visit UCLA. UCLA running backs coach DeShaun Foster had an in-home visit with Carr on Wednesday.  


Oregon-committed running back prospect C.J. Verdell, of Chula Vista (Calif.) Mater Dei, is officially visiting.  Foster had an in-home visit with Verdell this week, too, and UCLA will pull out the stops to flip him from the Ducks this weekend. Verdell officially visited Utah last weekend, so he's definitely considering his options. 


Another prospect that projects to running back, Connor Wedington, will be in Westwood for his official visit. Wedington decommitted from Washington a while back once he was offered by Stanford, so it's believed he's a heavy lean to the Cardinal. 


Seaward is the other uncommitted prospect officially visiting.  He's verbally committed to Boise State, but then received a UCLA offer shortly after verbally committing.  It's believed UCLA will have a pretty good shot at flipping Seaward this weekend, especially with his teammate, Jax Wacaser, who is committed to UCLA, also on his official visit this weekend. 

The remaining official visitors are all verbally committed to UCLA (listed below). Of course, UCLA has a history of trying to sneak in official visitors, too, and there could be a possibility of that this weekend.
