One of the many prospects who double dipped last weekend and saw UCLA's early Saturday practice and then the USC spring game was John Plattenburg, who is hearing from both schools but has not been offered yet.
The Corona (Calif.) Centennial three-star cornerback especially liked what he saw at UCLA but he didn't spend a tremendous amount of time there before heading across town.
Still, in his short time on campus, Plattenburg said he was impressed by the Bruins and he plans to return soon to spend more time with the coaches.

"I just went over there for the practice," Plattenburg said. "I was supposed to go over there and check out the buildings and see the school and then talk to coach (Jim) Mora but I had an emergency so I didn't get to do that. I just watched about 30 minutes of the practice and then headed over to USC for the spring game.
"The practices are a lot different. It was really organized. I thought it was a really good atmosphere and they were really competitive. I like the atmosphere and I just love it over there."
The reason Plattenburg, who has looked at numerous 7on7 tournaments this spring, wants to return to UCLA is because there have been hints an offer might be coming soon.
"Coach (Demetrice) Martin did tell me they're basically interested and they just want to get me up there," Plattenburg said.
"I think I am going back up there because I didn't get to talk to anybody in-depth. I think I can go up if not this week then the week after. I'm going to try to talk with coach Mora. He wants to see me in person and they said something good could be going in a little while."
Plattenburg also had some contact with the USC coaches and one is supposed to stop by Corona Centennial's spring practice soon. The three-star wasn't blown away by the spring game, which was more like a glorified practice, but he said an offer from the Trojans would carry a lot of weight.
"It was all right there," Plattenburg said. "I was expecting a little bit more. The spring game was nice. We saw the locker room. It was a little bit more traditional. It was cool there though.
"One of their coaches is supposed to come to our practice on Thursday and they said they want to see me at summer camp against the best of the best. They want me to show it off so I can get something from them."
Cal continues to show a lot of interest in Plattenburg and its coaches could stop by his school in the coming weeks. An offer from the Golden Bears could be close. So far, Boise State, Colorado State, Nevada, San Diego State, Utah and Washington have offered.
