Westbrook Solid with New Staff
Some prospects have opened up their recruitment, de-committed, or switched their commitments to other schools, but UCLA fans will be happy to know that the shakeup in Westwood has only strengthened Compton (CA) Dominguez offensive lineman Lacy Westbrook's commitment to the Bruins. "I have actually heard of Coach Mora before he signed with UCLA," Westbrook said. "I remember he coached the falcons when Michael Vick was there and they got to the NFC championship that one year." The four-star lineman has yet to speak with Jim L. Mora but is excited about the direction of the program, especially with the recent hiring of offensive line coach Adrian Klemm. "That really does kind of solidify my commitment," Westbrook said of the hiring. "He's an excellent, excellent coach and that is what I have been looking for in a program." Klemm formerly served as an assistant coach under June Jones at SMU, where he heavily recruited the Los Angeles area, and built a strong relationship with several players in the region. "We had a nice, friendly relationship, like he was one of my friends," Westbrook said. "And now that he is not so far, and now that he is at UCLA, the package has basically got even better." With the recent changes to the coaching staff at UCLA, Westbrook feels that he will soon be joined by other big time prospects in Westwood. "I think that they will be able to bring in a couple of more players this year and a lot of good recruits next year," Westbrook said. "(Klemm) has a real good recruiting foundation. You now have the top recruiters from this year and the years before that."
