Compton (Calif.) Dominguez offensive guard Lacy Westbrook is spending the weekend in Westwood for an official and a chance to checkout his future home.
“I am looking forward to connecting with the campus, the people, and the staff,” commented Westbrook. “It will be a good time. I want to get more comfortable and to feel at home.”
Westbrook is heading into the weekend hoping to get one specific question answered.
“I want to find out what kind of offense they are thinking about bringing in, since they now have a new offensive coordinator,” explained Westbrook. “I know they want me to line up at either guard or tackle.”
As for his stance with the Bruins, Westbrook has been committed to UCLA since the end of November and has remained solid, thanks to his close ties to the Bruins new staff.
“Coach (Adrian) Klemm and Coach (Jim) Mora are my recruiters. They have been keeping in close contact with me, keeping the Bruins in my head and making sure there are no distractions,” commented Westbrook. “ And they are doing a real good job.”
After witnessing the amount of stress several of his teammates are experiencing because of the rapidly approaching Signing Day deadline, Westbrook says he is happy to have his decision out of the way.
“It’s a big relief to already have my mind made up. Knowing that I am set to go somewhere and that I have already met all the academic requirements. So it will be a cruise from here,” said Westbrook. “The players who haven’t committed anywhere yet are confused, nervous, and the stress is getting to them. This is just a really shaking process for them, but I wish them all the best of luck.”
