Jay Guy, the 6-0, 315-pound defensive tackle prospect from Houston (Tex.) Eisenhower, who is verbally committed to California, will visit UCLA officially this weekend.

Last weekend, Guy took a visit to Cal. The Nebraska site,, reported this:

The trip is interesting because it might influence Guy to either still look at some other schools or to firm up his commitment.

Guy said: "I took a trip out to Cal last weekend. My mom and dad got to go and I really enjoyed it. The game was good and I really like the school. It was a good trip.

"My commitment is getting stronger, but I still want to take some other visits. I at least want to check out those other schools before I sign on the dotted line."

It seems Guy isn't going to be waiting around on the visits. He is back on the road next weekend, has another visit the end of October and has another scheduled for early November. Two teams are fighting over that last spot.

He said: "I go to UCLA next weekend. I go to Nebraska on November 7th. I am also looking at going to Ole Miss and Texas Tech. Both of those are probably late in November trips. I am going to Minnesota on October 31st."

What's important to Guy on these trips so he can compare the school to Cal is really down to the structure of the team. He wants to see how everything works, meet the coaches and see if the program is on the right track.

He said: "I want to see how the organization works at these schools on my visits. I want to see how the coaches are, see if I am a fit with their players and get an understanding if that team is going to win."
