Nico Falah visited USC and UCLA this past weekend but didn't work out at either camp. Instead, he soaked in both atmospheres and came to an important realization in his recruitment.
"I think I'm going to UCLA or USC, one of those two," Falah said.
The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco four-star offensive lineman said he loves the coaching staffs at both schools and that it's going to be a difficult decision.

Early on, Falah wanted to wait until National Signing Day to make his commitment but now he's thinking it can be done in the next few months.
And it's going to probably come down to either the Bruins or the Trojans.
His trip to USC went exceptionally well.
"I talked to coach (James) Cregg and coach (Lane) Kiffin and it was like an unofficial visit," Falah said.
"I talked to coach (John) Baxter and he was telling me about all the academics. I talked to the strength coach and he was telling me his game plan. I was down there for a good four hours and it was a really good trip. USC is high on my list."
The UCLA trip also went well and Falah, a 6-foot-5, 270-pound prospect, said he really likes the new coaching staff there.
"I like them," Falah said. "The biggest part about UCLA is the coaching staff. They are great people and they're great coaches. I talked to coach (Adrian) Klemm for about an hour after the camp was over. I like being around there. It was fun."
Rivals.com rates Falah as the No. 12 offensive tackle, No. 119 overall and No. 14 in the California state rankings.
