Milo Jordan has been committed to Arizona State since early June but a recent offer from UCLA definitely has the Corona (Calif.) Centennial thinking and he's planning to take an official visit with the Bruins soon.
"It's pretty big," Jordan said. "It's a prestigious offer and I'm really excited about that one. UCLA has been on me for a little while now. I've gone to a couple games and I'm going to take my visit pretty soon.
"I haven't set an exact date but we were just talking about it. It was a surprise when they offered me but it wasn't a big surprise because I've been talking to them."

Even though Jordan, a 6-foot-2, 275-pound three-star defensive tackle, has been to UCLA multiple times over the years taking an official visit is crucial so he can figure out whether it's the best place for him.
Getting around the coaches and players for an entire weekend is something the Corona Centennial standout wants to do.
"That's really the most important thing to me," Jordan said. "I have to live there and enjoy it for a good amount of time so I'm trying to pick the place where I'm most comfortable and I feel I can do the most good."
Jordan said he has let the Arizona State coaching staff know his intentions to visit UCLA and probably some other places and they weren't against it. Keeping the communication lines open is important to Jordan, who wants to also visit Colorado and Nebraska.
"I'm very open with Arizona State," Jordan said. "They were imploring me to take other visits so I could see the comparisons and know I made the right choice."
A trip to UCLA could happen later this month or in November. He was supposed to take an official trip to Arizona State last weekend but that didn't work out. That will be rescheduled. Colorado is also expected to be on his visit list and Jordan said he's really looking forward to getting to Nebraska.
"I've been talking to (Nebraska) and that's one of my main goals," Jordan said. "I want to get out there for a visit because I think that would be very exciting."
