Culver City (Calif.) receiver Antwon Moutra was another of UCLA's early commitments who, despite the verbal to the Bruins, was planning on taking visits to other schools.

Moutra was in Oregon this weekend and fresh off his official visit, he heard on Monday that UCLA would not be retaining Karl Dorrell.

"It was something I didn't want to see, but yeah, I was kind of expecting it," said Moutra. "Things happen and it always happens with coaches coming in."

Moutra said the firing of Dorrell doesn't affect him nearly as much as the possibility of two coaches responsible for recruiting him, Eric Scott and DeWayne Walker, leaving.

"It matters to me what happens with Coach Walker and Coach Scott," said Moutra. "Because a lot of this is building relationships. Its like having a father sign a birth certificate and then leaving. I've been around those guys for a while, and then someone new could come in and he doesn't know anything about us and we don't know anything about him. So that will matter."

Moutra said he had a good trip to Oregon this past weekend and he'll be visiting Arizona this weekend officially with Cal also discussing setting up a visit with him.

"It was a good visit to Oregon," said Moutra. "They told me everything they had to offer and how I would fit in to the offense. They showed me a great time."

He plans to take an official visit to UCLA and said he would make a final decision and where he'll end up following all of his official visits."
