Here are quick recruiting updates on some prospects that were at the Los Angeles Nike Camp Sunday:

Tobi Umodu, linebacker, Covina (Calif.) South Hills, said he considers himself committed to UCLA but is just attending junior days of different schools.

Kris Means, linebacker, Grand Junction (Col.) High, said UCLA hasn't offered, and he visited UCLA unofficially this week.

"(UCLA) coach (Brian) Schneider is recruiting me, and I like him a lot," Means said. He intends to return to UCLA's four-day camp in June, and go to Iowa State's camp.

Terrence Austin, Long Beach Poly wide receiver, when asked his favorite schools, said, ""UCLA...and also Cal and Colorado. And Oregon, too."

When asked if he had one favorite, Austin said: ""UCLA...but I want to say Cal and Colorado. Let's say that they're all the same."

UCLA is his only offer to date.

He said he wasn't sure if he'd commit early, but would have to talk to his parents about it.

Cleveland Jones, the defensive tackle from Los Angeles Dorsey, said he hadn't received a scholarship offer to date.

"Oregon, Fresno State, Washington State and UCLA have contacted me," Jones said. He has a 2.9 GPA and scored over a 900 on his PSAT.

Marquez Herrod, the linebacker/defensive end from Escondido San Pasqual, visited a UCLA practice this winter. He said UCLA, Nebraska, Colorado and UTEP were the three schools he's heard from. He said he plans to attend the Colorado camp and possibly UCLA's camp.

Allen Bradford, the standout linebacker from Colton, listed UCLA, USC, Washington and Ole Miss as his favorites.

He declined to say he had a leader beyond those four favorites.

All of those schools had offered, as well as Arizona, Colorado State and Georgia.

"I'd like to stay close to home," Bradford said. "If another opportunity presented itself, I'd look into it, though."

He said he has a 2.6 GPA and will take the SAT June 6th.

He wants to major in business, or a related field.

When asked what he liked about USC and UCLA, Bradford said, "I grew up liking both of them. I think USC really gets after it on defense. UCLA is a good school and they've had good defenses that get after it, too."
