Warren Talks About UCLA Visit

Four-star cornerback Donovan Warren, the top player remaining on UCLA's recruiting board, took his official visit to Westwood this weekend and talked about his trip and his relationship with DeWayne Walker...

Donovan Warren was plenty busy last week with the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

This weekend saw Warren busy again as the four-star cornerback from Long Beach Poly took his fifth and final official trip, this one to UCLA.

"I really liked it a lot," said Warren. "It was a good trip. Rodney Van was my host and it was a real nice experience. I got to see the whole other side of campus and hang out with the players."

Warren also spent time talking with defensive coordinator DeWayne Walker, the coach in charge of his recruitment.

"I have a lot of respect for him and he's just been a great person to talk to," said Warren. "He is one of the reasons I stuck with UCLA all this time. He said they have a great up-and-coming team and I could come in and be a difference maker and have a chance to play right away. Coach (Karl) Dorrell and I talked about the same thing that he wants me to come in and compete for early playing time.

While USC is still considered the heavy favorite for Warren's services, he insisted he's trying to stay wide open.

"It's going to come down to February 1st when I announce my decision," said Warren. "Until then, I'm weighing my options. I'm still looking at all four schools (USC, California, Michigan, UCLA). I like all the schools the same so I wouldn't say I really have a favorite. I have a couple of in-home visits and then I should be pretty close to a decision."

This week, Michigan and USC will have in-home visits with Warren then the following week, Cal and UCLA will make their final pitch.

Warren will announce his decision on the High School Spotlight on February 1st, a day he's looking forward to.

"I'm announcing it then on TV and I'm ready to get it over with," said Warren. "I want to just focus on track season."
