Wysocki Has Good Showing at UCLA

Los Alamitos (Calif.) offensive tackle Ben Wysocki is coming off a strong performance at UCLA's camp on Sunday and could find himself receiving an offer from the Bruins...

Los Alamitos (Calif.) offensive tackle Ben Wysocki (6-4, 285), was one of the better performers at the UCLA 1-Day Camp on Sunday.

"It went really good," said Wysocki. "Coach (Rick) Neuheisel said they really liked me. I've got to call them this week and confirm if they're going to offer me. During the 1-on-1's, I played guard and tackle and was pretty much going all over the line and some center too and I thought I did really well. I'm going back on the 19th."

Wysocki said the Bruins are recruiting him as an guard or tackle, liking his versatility.

UCLA is just one of a host of schools that is interested in Wysocki.

"I've got the offer from Stanford and Northern Arizona and I'm hearing from Boise State, Idaho, Iowa State, San Diego State Oregon, Oregon State, Fresno State, UNLV and Northwestern," said Wysocki. "Penn is looking at me, Harvard, Texas Tech, Columbia, Utah, Dartmouth, UC Davis, Navy, Princeton, Army and Colorado too."

USC is another school that has been showing interest in Wysocki of late.

"SC has been giving me some looks," said Wysocki. "Coach (Ed) Orgeron called me at the end of the month, and wants me to come their lineman camp on Saturday but I may be taking the ACT, so I'll try to make that one or for sure the Rising Stars. Coach O and Coach (James) Cregg said they like me as a guard or center, more as a quicker guy."

Later this summer, Wysocki plans to visit Oregon and Oregon State, and visited Stanford unofficially earlier this spring.

"Over Memorial Day weekend, I took an unofficial to Stanford, and it went great, it was awesome," said Wysocki. "I got to tour the school for two days, met with Coach (Jim) Harbaugh and Coach (Brian) Polian and I thought the environment there was awesome."

Wysocki knows that with schools showing more interest, that more offers could come, so he's not in a rush to make a decision.

"Coach (John) Barnes and my family and I have talked and they said I should try to narrow it down in the next few months, but don't commit yet," said Wysocki.

Academically, Wysocki has a 3.67 GPA.
