Corona (Calif.) running back Jordon James' week turned out to be a good one.

The 5-10, 185-pound back landed three more offers.

"He received offers from Arizona State and San Diego State," said his mother, Tonia.

Then came another one from close to home on Wednesday afternoon.

"UCLA offered Jordon today," said Tonia. "He talked to Coach Neuheisel and Coach Moses." But that was just the icing on the cake for James, who received a big honor.

"He has been selected to participate in the 2010 UnderArmour All-American Game," said his mother. "He is real excited about that and he said that's where he will make his decision on where he will go to college."

The offers from the Bruins, Sun Devils and Aztecs join offers from Arizona, California, Colorado, Oregon, Stanford, Tennessee and Washington.

As a 2008 junior at Corona, James ran for 1,135 yards in five games before suffering a season-ending injury. He was named First Team All-League and Honorable Mention All-County and Third Team All-State Underclass.
