UCLA Offers Ware -- Will He Commit?

Aaron Ware, 6-0, 190, Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian, received a scholarship offer in the mail from UCLA last week. "It was a letter from (head) coach (Karl) Dorrell," Ware said. "It talked about me following my legacy and fulfilling my destiny at UCLA. It was a very good letter."

Ware, of course, is the younger brother of Matt Ware, the UCLA junior cornerback who has chosen to forego his senior season next year for the NFL draft. Aaron is also the son of two Bruin alumni.

He now has two offers, including one from Duke. But the offer from UCLA really meant something to him. He said, "Just because it's UCLA, it means so much. It's just great to have it under my belt. I feel like I don't have to worry that much about it then."

When asked if he could verbally commit soon, Ware said, "Yeah, it's possible. Probably during the summer. I don't want to do anything now, but I'm leaning to UCLA and I could verbal in a few months."

Ware, who's in the middle of track season, said he's still not sure what position he sees himself playing in college. "Coach Dorrell had about the same opinion on it that I did, that I'm 50-50, either running back or cornerback. That's how he felt about it, too."

He plans on attending a few camps this spring and summer, and will try to make it to a UCLA camp.
