Prospect Talks About Visit

<b>Robert Killebrew</b>, the linebacker prospect from Klein (Texas) took his first official visit of the year to UCLA over the weekend. Although the Bruins didn't do to well on the field against crosstown rival USC, they did score points with the talented Texan...

Robert Killebrew, 6-1, 205, Klein (Tex.) High, gave us a rundown on how his official visit to UCLA went this last weekend.

"I flew in on Thursday and met with my hosts, Justin London and Wesley Walker," Killebrew said. "Friday was a busy day for me as I met with all the coaches, took a tour of the campus and met with all the academic advisers at the school. We went out a little that night but since they had a game to get ready for, everything was pretty quiet.

"Saturday I ate with the team and then we headed to the Rose Bowl. It was great to be a part of such a big rivalry game. The team didn't do that well but they're young and they'll be back. I didn't realize how young they are until I got there. They have over 20 freshman playing this year so I know they'll be strong in the future.

"After the game, we said our goodbyes and then I headed home. Overall, it was a great trip and I had a lot of fun. I got along well with the players on the team and I can definitely see myself fitting in well there if that's what I decide to do."

Did the way the team played have a negative affect on whether or not you would come to UCLA?

"Of course not, that would be crazy to base a five year decision on one football game," Killebrew said. "Just like it would be crazy to base going there if they had won the game. I'm looking for the right fit for me and where I'll be most comfortable. UCLA is a good fit for me and I have a ton of family out here. My aunt, grandparents and a ton of cousins are out there so I like it a lot. I want to take the rest of my trips before making my decision though so I'm in no hurry to commit anywhere."

Killebrew said he's still looking strongly at Oklahoma, Texas, Florida and Miami although he hasn't heard from the Canes recently.
