Milwaukee (Wisc.) King receiver Lance Kendricks (6-4, 207) has plans to take an official visit to UCLA in January.

"I've talked with Coach (Eric) Bieniemy and it looks like I'll be visiting in early January," said Kendricks. "I'm not sure the exact date but I know it's in January."

Kendricks also plans to take a trip to South Carolina that month, finishing his five official visits.

He's previously visited Arkansas and LSU and this last weekend took an official visit to in-state Wisconsin.

"My trips to LSU and Arkansas went good. I enjoyed both of them. I've been to Wisconsin a bunch of times for unofficial trips, but this will be my official one. I'm not getting a lot of pressure from people to go there because it's the home-state school. I like them anyway," said Kendricks.

Despite the presence of Wisconsin, Kendricks said he would have no problem leaving the state for school. "It wouldn't be tough for me to leave. I'm looking at schools in the south, and I'm looking at UCLA and I'm very serious about those schools," said Kendricks. "I can adjust to wherever I'm at."

Kendricks was somewhat underrated before the season began but recently rose to No. 11 in Scout.com's receiver rankings.

He said he would take all five of his official visits then come to a decision following the last one.

During his senior season, Kendrick caught 24 passes for 460 yards and five touchdowns and rushed 32 times for 155 yards and two touchdowns.

Academically, Kendricks has a 3.5 GPA and scored a 19 on the ACT.
