Lake Balboa (Calif.) Birmingham receiver/safety Corey Anderson (6-1, 170) took his first official trip this weekend, to Westwood, and while he didn't get the offer he was hoping for, his time at UCLA was good.

"It was a fun trip," Anderson said. "I didn't get an offer from them, but it was still cool."

Anderson was hosted by former Brave teammate Dennis Keyes, a freshman safety with the Bruins. "Dennis was my host and it was good to see him."

The only other trip Anderson has scheduled is a visit to UNLV next weekend, and the Rebels have offered him.

So, what's happening with UCLA? "UCLA told me they are waiting on a couple of other guys, but they could offer if they have some scholarships. I'll wait for them, but if UNLV just blows me away, I could commit there."

Anderson was making his first trip to the UCLA campus, and liked what he saw. He said, "It was a great campus. Well-put together. And the athletic facilities are even better. I spent a lot of time with Coach Svoboda. I like him a lot."

The athletic Anderson had a strong senior year, with 56 receptions for over 1400 yards and 12 touchdowns. On defense, he tallied 8 interceptions.

Anderson frequented UCLA games this past season, and said the Bruins are one of two schools he's seriously considering at this point. "UNLV offered me, and so did Nevada. I'm not going to trip to Nevada though. Its either UNLV or UCLA."

Anderson has a 3.4 GPA and will take his SAT at a later date.
