Five Official Visits This Weekend

There are now <b>five</b> football recruits coming to UCLA for official visits this weekend -- including linebacker <b>Adrian McCovey</b>, and two scatback-type running backs from out of state, <b>Chris Williams</b> and <b>Deon Wallace</b>...

Five football recruits will be visiting UCLA officially this weekend.

They are:

Adrian McCovey, 6-3, 218, Lakewood (Calif.) High. Being one of the best linebacker prospects in the west, and UCLA desperately in need of linebackers, McCovey is a huge priority for the Bruins. He had said previously he wanted to leave the area for school, and UCLA was down his list. But recently he's had second thoughts about leading, and UCLA's chances are improving. He has visited Arizona, Oklahoma, and Oregon State, and will also visit Miami the next weekend. He'll visit Miami with his teammate, Luthur Brown, and the Hurricanes will be hitting McCovey hard to help get a package deal with Brown. The possibility of early playing time at UCLA will be an advantage, though.

Here's the recruiting update we did on McCovey this week.

Make sure you check on the highlight video of McCovey, also.

Deon Wallace, 5-8, 180, Houston (Tex.) Worthing. UCLA just started recruiting Wallace about three weeks ago. He's a quick, scat-back type of runner, who isn't that well-known. He has already officially visited Kansas State.

Here's the update we did this week.

Also, here's Wallace's video highlights.

Chris Williams, 5-9, 150, Rio Rancho (NM) High. Not well known or recruited by many, Williams is a great all-around athlete who is an elite high jumper as well as a sprinter. He also recorded a 4.37 40-yard dash at a summer combine. Here is his update from this week.

Steve Schmidt, JC SO TE, 6-5, 230. Oroville (Calif.) Butte College. Schmidt was an honorable mention JC Gridwire All-American. Butte is the same school that produced Cal quarterback, Aaron Rodgers. Schmidt would have three to play two.

And there is one more official visitor, but we can't release his name as of yet.

It's pretty apparent that UCLA has recently become interesting in bringing in a scatback-type of running back, with its recently interest in Wallace and Williams.
