UCLA Still Watching Randle

UCLA is staying in contact with Vista Murrieta (Calif.) running back Bradley Randle, who picked up his first Pac-10 offer last week, and he's keeping the Bruins in the mix as he waits for an offer...

Vista Murrieta (Calif.) running back Bradley Randle (5-9, 195) has had one of the best seasons of a Southland running back. That's been part of Randle's plan all along, and now more schools are taking notice.

"Washington State called (Thursday) and gave me an offer," said Randle. "That's my first Pac 10 offer. They're looking at me and I like them a lot. And of course, I still like UCLA and I'm hoping they offer ne. Coach (Wayne) Moses has been the one I've been talking with."

Idaho and even Alabama have gotten in touch with Randle's coach.

"They told my coach that they liked me and just wanted to see some more film," said Randle. "The season is winding down so I'm trying to keep getting my name out there more."

This past weekend, Randle took an unofficial visit up to Fresno State and he's planning on setting his official visits up in the next few weeks.

"Coach (Tony) White at New Mexico is recruiting me and they want me to come out and take a visit. I'm thinking about setting up my visit to UNLV and I want to go and visit Washington State too. I just need to see what our playoff schedule is like."

Randle attended UCLA's game with Arizona and saw Fresno State host New Mexico State this past weekend. Those two dot his top five.

"Right now, I like Washington State, New Mexico, UCLA, UNLV and Fresno State," said Randle. "Part of me wants to commit, but the other part of me wants to wait it out."

The latter would allow Randle to wait and see what Fresno State and UCLA did.

"I'm still sending them my film, and just waiting to hear back," said Randle.

Randle is averaging over 150 yards a game for Vista Murrieta as they head into the playoffs.

In the weight room, he's making progress too, especially for a guy of his stature.

"My bench press is 315 now and I'm squatting 425. I ran a 4.39 forty too," said Randle.
