Head Still Looking for Offer

Devin Head, 6-4, 260, Corona (Calif.) Centennial, had a very good showing at UCLA's recent one-day camp.

He looked particularly quick for his size, recording a 4.49 20-yard shuttle, which is exceptionally quick for a lineman, particularly on slow Spaulding Field.

In the one-on-one drills, he was very good at keeping his man in front of him with his feet and hands, and showed a considerable mean streak.

To date, Head said he has not received an official scholarship offer, but said some schools have hinted they could.

"Oregon said they might offer," Head said. "Colorado and Washington State, too, I think."

In addition to those three, Head has also heard from UCLA, Colorado, Arizona and California.

In terms of a favorite, Head said that he grew up a fan of one school. "I grew up my whole life as a Bruin fan. So, they'd still have to be my favorite."

While UCLA is looking for tackle types and Head probably projects as a guard on the next level (even though he said he'll probably play tackle this year on his high school team), his quickness was something that impressed UCLA line coach Tom Cable, who worked with him at the one-day camp. "It was pretty exciting to have Coach Cable coach me," Head said. "It was really the first time I had ever talked to him and I was really impressed. He really knows his stuff. (UCLA assistant) Dino Babers has been the coach recruiting me so far, but I also really liked Cable."

If UCLA did offer, it would be the perfect situation for Head. "My parents aren't really trying to influence me. They just want me to go to a good school. But I know that they'd be ecstatic if I went to UCLA. If UCLA offered, I'd really consider committing on the spot."

A good student, Head has a 3.3 GPA and scored a 1080 on the SAT.
