UCLA Commit Trips to ASU

<b>Jeremy Harrell</b>, the two-way lineman from Texas who verbally committed to UCLA last summer, took an official visit to Arizona State this weekend...

Jeremy Harrell, a 6-2, 285 pound two way lineman from Texarkana (Texas) committed prior to the season to UCLA but in light of the Bruins recent coaching change, Harrell has now opened up his recruitment and took his first visit to Arizona State this weekend.

"That was a great visit, I loved Arizona State," Harrell said. "The coaches are great and the players are great- just one big family. I got along really well with everyone there. The only down side was it was finals week so a lot of the girls on campus were taking tests. I heard ASU had the best looking girls around and the ones I saw were all real nice.

"The facilities they have are unbelievable. I've never seen a weight room like that before. It has to be the best in the country, it was just huge and the whole team can work out together as one. ASU definitely has given me a lot to think about and they're very high on my list."

Do you still consider yourself committed to UCLA?

"I'm still very interested in UCLA but right now, I'm just open," Harrell said. "I don't think I would say I'm still committed. The coaches I committed to are gone and I haven't heard from anyone from UCLA except Coach Kezerian.

"I camped there this summer and one of the main reasons I committed was because of Coach Toledo and Coach Pearce. Coach Pearce was especially a major part in my decision. I liked him so much, he's just an awesome guy and he made me feel like UCLA was where I wanted to be. I'm very interested in talking to the new staff and seeing what their plans are and what my role will be.

"UCLA was recruiting me to play on either side of the ball but more so on offense. I hope they keep Coach Weber because I enjoyed working with him a lot. I have trips planned to Oklahoma State (Jan. 10), Nebraska (Jan. 17) and I'll probably be setting visits to Texas A&M and Arkansas early this week. I don't know if I'll need to visit UCLA because I've been there and saw everything they have. I'm sure they'll come in for a home visit and I can talk to them a lot more at that time.

"Right now, my plan is to take all five of my trips, weigh all my options and then decide on Signing Day. I really have no idea what I'm going to do right now. I'm totally open to everyone and will just play this out until Signing Day."
