Recruits Taking Official Visits

UCLA has one of its biggest recruiting weekends when it brings in a number of prospects over the next few days, including a couple of key defensive line recruits...

The committed guys who are visiting include: Malcolm Jones, RB, Westlake Village (Calif.) Oaks Christian

Jordon James, RB, Corona (Calif.) High
Eric Kendricks, LB, Fresno (Calif.) Hoover
Tevin McDonald, DB, Fresno (Calif.) Edison
Wesley Flowers, DL Fresno (Calif.) Edison
Shaquille Richardson, CB, Los Alamitos (Calif.) High
Paul Richardson, WR, Gardena (Calif.) Serra
John Young, TE, Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola

Uncommitted:

Sealii Epenesa, DT, Honolulu (Hawaii) Iolani. Many believe Epenesa is an under-rated defensive tackle prospect. UCLA is said to be leading, since he has extensive family in the area. Apparently his academics will be passable. UCLA needs DT and would like to get a verbal commitment from Epenesa this weekend.

Ricky Heimuli, DT, Salt Lake City (Utah) Brighton. Heimuli is the #6-ranked DT in the country and one of UCLA's biggest targets left un-committed. If UCLA could get both Epenesa and Heimuli this weekend it would be considered a success.

Anthony Barr, ATH, Los Angeles (Calif.) Loyola. The running back/defensive back/linebacker is down to UCLA and Notre Dame and, while UCLA has been thought to be the leader for a while, we recently heard it could be Notre Dame. He already visited Notre Dame, so he has said he'll probably be ready to decide after this weekend.

Anthony Jefferson, DB, Los Angeles (Calif.) Cathedral. The latest word is that UCLA leads for Jeferson, even though Oregon has been making a big push.

Rykeem Yates, DL, Fresno (Calif.) Edison. The only guy on this list who doesn't have a scholarship offer, Yates is a good athlete with a good motor. He'd snatch up a UCLA offer, but the Bruins have been waiting on a few other DL recruits. It will be interesting to see if there's any movement with Yates this weekend.
