Safety is a major position of emphasis for UCLA in the 2018 class and there are several local options that defensive backs coach Demetrice Martin has on his recruiting board.
Four-star prospect Bryan Addison of Gardena (Calif.) Serra is one of those recruits and, though his name has gone national in recent weeks, he intends to give the Bruins a close look in the coming months.
"I'll visit UCLA for their spring game," Addison said. "(Coach Martin) wants to use me as a long safety so I can use my ball skills and athleticism. That's pretty much it."
"I haven't been to any UCLA games," Addison said. "I've been to campus when I was younger, but not anytime recently."
