One prospect who the Bruins are keeping tabs on is Chino Hills (Calif.) Ayala receiver Alonso Agwuenu (6-3, 185).
"You could say that Oregon is my favorite school," said Agwuenu. "California would be another school I'd really like to go to and I'm planning to go to Berkeley for a camp this summer. UCLA is another because it's close to home. I'm hoping to get to one of UCLA's practices this spring."
With the three Pac-10 schools standing out as favorites, Agwuenu said it's part of his plan. "My family really wants me to stay in the Pac-10 and I grew up watching the Pac-10 so it would be nice if I could stay there," said Agwuenu.
But Agwuenu said that he's in no rush to make a decision and things could change with a big senior year, one in which he may be at a different school. "I'm transferring to Chino Hills (where UCLA target Cory Harkey plays) for my senior year so I kind of want to wait and see what I do my senior year," said Agwuenu. "That way I can go with the best pick when I have all of my options."
Last weekend at the Nike Camp, Agwuenu said he performed well in a crowded receiver field. "The coaches said I was number two behind Kemonte Bateman (UCLA's committed receiver)," said Agwuenu. "I was hoping for a good day."
This weekend, Agwuenu will be at the Scout Combine at the Home Depot Center, one of a list of camps that he'll be at this year. Agwuenu is also planning on camping at Cal and may camp at UCLA and Oregon this spring and summer.
An all-Sierra League selection as a junior, Agwuenu had 42 catches for 690 yards and seven touchdowns.
Academically, he has a 2.9 and scored a 1450 on the SAT as a sophomore.
