QB Talks About Junior Day

One of UCLA's big targets at quarterback, Aaron Corp, attended UCLA's Junior Day last Saturday, and he talks about the experience, potentially making a commitment, and when, and more...

One of the four quarterbacks that UCLA has scholarship offers, Orange (Calif.) Lutheran signal-caller Aaron Corp (6-3, 185), was at the Bruins' Junior Day last weekend.

"It was great," said Corp. "I really liked the coaches, and I got to talk a lot with Coach (Jim) Svoboda. I also got to talk with Coach (Jim) Colletto (who is the regional recruiter for Corp). I like him too."

With his offer from the Bruins, to go along with newly received offers from Nebraska and Cal, Corp now has five total, including those from from Arizona and Oregon.

In terms of when he might decide, the athletic quarterback said he didn't want to wait too long. "I kind of want to make an early decision. I could see myself deciding before summer," said Corp.

But what school remains to be seen. Still, Corp maintained a leader in his search for his future school. "UCLA is still my number one school, then Cal, Oregon, Arizona and Nebraska. I like Stanford a lot too, and they have been sending me some stuff, but they need to see my SAT before they do anything else. I'm taking that on April 1st," said Corp.

With UCLA having offered Chris Forcier, Peter Lalich and Jimmy Clausen, it appears that the first between Corp and Forcier to commit would get the scholarship. But that didn't add any pressure to Corp. "The coaches didn't pressure me to make a decision at all. They basically told me they really want me. Who chooses it first is not a factor for me. It comes down to the education, the location and the facilities, and the fact that it is UCLA," said Corp. "I want to make the best choice based on those things."

Corp said that correspondence from other schools has come in recently, including USC, who has invited him to their Junior Day on April 2nd, which he plans to attend. He also has been invited to Nebraska's Junior Day, on April 15th, but is uncertain whether he will attend it. Corp hopes to attend UCLA's Spring Scrimmage this weekend.

His plans for the spring and summer include the Elite 11 tryouts in Las Vegas as well as potential visits to the Scout.com Combine in Los Angeles as well as the Nike Camp in L.A.

During his junior year, Corp threw for 1,800 yards and 15 touchdowns while rushing for 650 yards and eight touchdowns.

Academically, Corp said he was in the 3.2 range for GPA and would be taking the SAT in the spring.
