Teague Familiar With Process

After watching older brother get recruited, Pomona (Calif.) athlete Taj Teague is ready for his turn, and schools are showing interest, including UCLA, where he visited unofficially earlier this spring...

Pomona (Calif.) safety/running back Taj Teague (6-1, 185), isn't a stranger to the recruiting process, watching his older brother get recruited two years ago.

Teague's brother, Titus Teague, just finished his first season at Louisville, where he redshirted, and the Cardinals are just one of the teams that Teague is interested in.

"I'm most interested in Oregon, Cal, UCLA and Louisville," said Teague. "Those are just some of the schools I'm hearing from, I can't name them all."

Teague said the three Pac-10 schools are standing out the most to him.

"I like Oregon, Cal and UCLA the most," said Teague. "I'm only hearing from Louisville a little bit. Oregon is probably my favorite school."

Teague said he's hoping to get up to Oregon during the spring. So far, his only college visit has been to UCLA, for the Bruins' Junior Day last month.

"It was really cool there at UCLA," said Teague. "Coach (Wayne) Moses talked to me about coming to see me during the spring and me coming to their camp. I think with them and most schools, offers will come after the spring."

Teague played both running back and safety for Pomona last fall, but he's setting his mind on defense at the next level.

"In college, I really want to play safety," said Teague.

Academically, Teague has a 3.1 GPA and will take the SAT later in the spring.
