Fresno (Calif.) Edison defensive lineman Wesley Flowers went into his visit to UCLA already secure in knowing he was going to be a Bruin.

Having committed to UCLA in June, Flowers went to Westwood with his teammates Tevin McDonald, who also was a June commit, and Rykeem Yates, who committed over the weekend.

"It was wonderful, I just loved it," said Flowers. "The campus is great. You dont have to walk that far to get anywhere the way it is."

Flowers was hosted by Stan McKay, but also hung out with former Edison player Courtney Viney, who was McDonald's host. "It was cool because all the players get along and are really cool," said Flowers.

Flowers can play both tackle and end, and was told on his visit, that the plan would be for him to try both.

"Coach (Todd) Howard said it's still open what I'll play," said Flowers. "With my body size, there is no definite position, if its tackle or end. So he said I have a chance to play both. I just want to play."

Flowers also got a chance to spend time with head coach Rick Neuheisel.

"Coach Neuheisel came by the house and Coach Howard has come by, so talking to them, especially Coach Neuheisel was good."

Flowers said he had no doubts that UCLA was for him, and the visit only confirmed that.

"This visit, it's home already," said Flowers. "I can't wait to get back. We got a chance to go to the Rose Bowl and we got in the locker room and saw the jerseys. I wear #56 but that's Datone Jones' number so I have big shoes to fill, I think I'm going to be #92, Brian Price's number."
