Jared Naylor, 6-3, 270, 4.9 Tulsa (Okla.) Union, who is scheduled to visit UCLA with his mom on January 10th, was very pleased to hear that defensive line coach Don Johnson was joining the new staff and staying at UCLA.

 

Asked if Naylor has spoken to UCLA's new head football coach, Karl Dorrell, he said, "They (UCLA) called just the other day. I don't know if it was him or not, but I haven't gotten a chance to talk with him. I'm looking forward to meeting him and talking with him."

 

Defensive line coach Don Johnson has been recruiting Naylor since his junior year, and Naylor had mentioned in the last couple of weeks that he would like to see Johnson stay at UCLA with the new staff. When BRO told Naylor that Johnson would be retained, he said, "He is going to stay there? Well, allright! That's pretty cool."

 

As reported last week, Naylor, who was voted an all-state first-team defensive tackle,  said he has talked recently with Kansas State, Nebraska, New Mexico State, Stanford and SMU. Both SMU and New Mexico State have offered Naylor, but his only scheduled official visit is to UCLA. "SMU has called a couple of times, and Tulsa has called a couple of times in the last few days," he said.
