Coming from a program that has produced a pair of 3-year starters for the Bruins (linebacker Brandon Chillar and offensive tackle Steve Vieira), Canfield wouldn't mind being the next Lancer to come to Westwood.
Canfield has a pair of offers from UTEP and Oregon State, but the Bruins are his leader, ahead of the OSU and Arizona. In addition, Canfield is hearing from Nebraska, San Diego State, Notre Dame, Boise State and Oklahoma.
"I'm going up to the 1-Day Camp at UCLA on Sunday. After Sunday, I should have a better idea of where I stand with UCLA. I'll see if they offer me," said Canfield.
While an offer won't produce an immediate commitment, Canfield says he isn't sure when he would commit.
"An offer from UCLA would definitely make an impact and I'd think about it (committing), but I don't have a real set time for a decision."
Canfield, a lefty who has nice touch on his passes and has a good deep ball, attended both the San Diego Nike Camp and the UCLA Adidas Camp last month. At Nike, Canfield jumped 28 inches and ran a 4.9 forty, and he felt he performed well at both camps. "I was happy how I did in the 1-on-1 drills. I thought I threw pretty well there and tested okay."
His primary recruiter from UCLA has been linebacker coach Brian Schneider, and this weekend he plans to meet with head coach Karl Dorrell.
In addition to the UCLA 1-day Camp, Canfield will attend an Elite 11 Camp in Las Vegas, the 1-Day Bob Johnson Camp, as well as a camp at Notre Dame. Add in passing leagues, and Canfield has his summer pretty well stocked.
As a junior, Canfield threw for 1,750 yards and 14 touchdowns, while as a sophomore, he threw for 1,694 yards and 15 touchdowns in leading Carlsbad to a CIF San Diego championship.
Canfield has a 3.0 GPA and scored an 880 on his SAT.
