Oakland Prospect Gets Call

<b>Williams Snead</b>, the defensive prospect from Oakland Skyline, got the call from UCLA he was waiting for on Saturday, even though he wasn't home to actually receive it...

William Snead, 6-4, 215, Oakland (Calif.) Skyline, officially visited UCLA the weekend of December 6th. On his way home from the airport he heard over the car radio that Bob Toledo was fired. UCLA had been Snead's favorite at the time, but he says he is wide open right now.


Snead did receive a call he had been waiting for on Saturday. UCLA's new head coach, Karl Dorrell, called and Snead was anxious to speak with him. "He called, but I wasn't at home," Snead said. "I would like to talk with him real soon." UCLA has kept in touch with Snead since the Toledo firing. He said he not only wanted to see who the head coach would be, but was very interested to see who his position coach would be.


Snead, who also plays basketball, missed the call since he was on his way home from Modesto, Calif., where Skyline was playing in a holiday basketball tournament. "We did okay. We finished 2-2."  Snead plays both forward positions and backs up at center.


With UCLA freshman linebacker Wesley Walker hosting him on his official visit to UCLA, Snead said he enjoyed his visit.. He has also already visited Arizona State and said, "It was nice. I enjoyed it." Snead has a January 10th trip to Washington scheduled and is in the process of setting a date to officially visit Cal. He indicated he wants to take all his visits before making a decision.
