D-End Stops Hearing from UCLA

The 6-4, 260-pound defensive end from Irvine (Calif.) Woodbridge, Alex Parsons, says he's down to three schools -- and none are UCLA, since the Bruins stopped calling him...

Irvine (Calif.) Woodbridge defensive end Alex Parsons (6-4, 260), has narrowed his choices down to three schools: USC, Arizona and Kentucky.

Missing from that group is UCLA, the first school to offer him and his favorite early on in the spring.

"UCLA stopped talking to me," said Parsons. "I think they took all the defensive ends they wanted to, so I haven't heard from them."

Parsons did say he would still possibly consider UCLA, should they reignite their interest in him. "I think I'm pretty set on whichever school I choose from those three," said Parsons. "But I haven't eliminated anyone yet."

Parsons has visited Arizona and Kentucky, where his older brother plays, and he will visit USC this weekend.

Oregon has had an in-home with Parsons as did Arizona, while Kentucky will this week.

Parsons said he is considering taking a trip to Oregon, but hasn't settled on it. "I'm definitely not set on a school yet, so we'll see how the visit this weekend goes," said Parsons.

Woodbridge had a disappointing 2-8 season, but Parsons did his part, tallying 104 tackles and 4.5 sacks from his end spot.

He has been selected to play in the CaliFlorida Bowl.

Academically, Parsons is fully qualified.
