Four-star commit to visit UCLA

Marcus rios 200 7 24
Boise State commit Marcus Rios is heading to UCLA this weekend for an official visit but Elk Grove (Calif.) Cosumnes Oaks coach Ryan Gomes said Rios is sticking with the Broncos and there's no danger of a de-commitment.
Rios, a four-star by Rivals.com who's rated No. 20 at safety in the 2012 class and No. 33 in the California state rankings, will be joines by Cosumnes Oaks teammate Michael Thomas, who's hearing more from the Bruins as well.
After committing to Boise State in March, Rios has said multiple times he's sticking with his commitment but plans to take some trips.
"Marcus is solid to Boise," Gomes said. "He's going to go ahead and take his officials and go through the process making sure he does it justice. He's definitely solid to Boise.
"(Boise State coach) Chris (Petersen) called me the other day and we talked for a long time. That's where our kids want to play. They want to go play with the Broncos."
Three-star defensive end Robert Ash from Cosumnes Oaks signed with Boise State last recruiting cycle and Rios is following in those footsteps. Gomes said the Cosumnes Oaks players feel comfortable with Boise's program.
"More so than the rankings and where they are nationally, it's just how they get things done," Gomes said.
"Our kids really relate to the coaching staff and there is a real sense of care for the kids. There are obviously a lot of places like that but we have a great relationship with that staff and a good relationship with the program.
"They feel really comfortable and confident going there. From Marcus' standpoint, he's really good, he's going to be a really special college player and he's looking at the development at the college level and potentially going to the NFL as well."
Rios also plans to visit Arizona State in November when it hosts Arizona. The four-star will also take an official visit to Boise State at some point but no date is determined yet. Other trips could happen as well.
"Chris told me he's going to see one high school game this fall and that's going to be a Cosumnes Oaks game," Gomes said. "That means a lot."
