Danville (Calif.) Monte Vista quarterback Brett Nottingham made the trip to Southern California to check out UCLA Saturday.

"I went to the UCLA Junior Day and it was pretty sweet," said Nottingham. "I talked to Coach (Rick) Neuheisel and Coach (Norm) Chow and watched them practice."

Nottingham said the feedback he got from the UCLA coaching staff was positive.

"They said they were really interested and they wanted me to go to their one-day camp June 6th," said Nottingham. "They said that's where they offer a bunch of guys."

Nottingham has family history with UCLA, with both his sisters having attended the school. But he told us he's looking at many Pac-10 schools. "Next weekend I'm going to Washington State for their Junior Day," said Nottingham. "Hopefully they offer next weekend. Arizona could offer, and I just went to Cal's spring practice last Thursday and Coach (Jeff) Tedford said he would probably offer when we get together and throw in late spring or early summer, like we did last year at Cal."

Nottingham, a four-star prospect by Scout.com, is staying patient as he waits for the first offer to come in.

"I'm just going to keep working and keep getting better," said Nottingham. "In the meantime, I think really soon I'll have some good news. I'm just looking forward to meeting all those coaches and throwing in front of them."

As a 2008 junior, Nottingham threw for over 3,500 yards and 39 touchdowns.
