One of the nation’s elite offensive lineman, Spanaway (Wash.) Bethel’s Aaron Klovas, visited UCLA this past weekend and said the Bruins are definitely a school he’s considering.
Klovas, 6-6, 300 pounds is one of the nation’s top 100 players and the most impressive West Coast offensive linemen we’ve seen on film this year. He has already visited Michigan State, Arizona State and Oregon and took visit No. 4 to Westwood.
“I really liked it,” Klovas said. “It was my first time in California but I’m definitely coming back, whether that’s as a UCLA student or just on vacation someday, it’s a great place. Ed Blanton was my host and I hung out with a lot of the other offensive linemen as well as the other OL recruits that had already committed.
“We ate at Lowry’s which is a great steakhouse and drove down in to Rodeo Drive. We visited the Rose Bowl and at breakfast in the press box. We put on UCLA jerseys with our names on it and had our names called on the speaker. I talked with Coach (Mark) Webber (OL coach) and like him a lot. He’s been recruiting me the whole time and I like his style of teaching. He’s more of a technician because when he played, he was kind of small so he had to have great technique to play. I know he would be able to teach me a lot of that same technique and he could help me reach my goals.
“I’m visiting Washington State this weekend and that will be my last official trip. I still have some more home visits set up and I believe Coach Belotti (Oregon) and Coach Dorrell (UCLA) will be coming this week. Coach Doba (Washington State) has already been in the home. I really don’t have a time line right now for my decision. Just when I feel I’m ready and when I know what I want to do, that’s when I’ll be ready to make my decision.”
