Scranton (Pa.) West Scranton tight end Hubie Graham took his second official visit of the season. The 6-foot-4, 227-pounder headed west to the City of Angels to check out UCLA.
"I know he really enjoyed his official out there," West Scranton head coach Mike DeAntona said. "I haven't gotten a chance to sit down with him yet and get an in-depth conversation about his visit. I did call him a couple times while he was in California.
"I know he was very impressed with the campus, football facilities and of course the Rose Bowl. He was able to spend a lot of time with the UCLA football players and said they were all really good guys that are down-to-earth. He thought they were people he could be teammates with in the future."
Graham enjoyed his time with the coaches too.
"I know he was impressed with the coaching staff," he said. "Coach Bullough talked a lot about how he's going to use Hubie if he were to go to UCLA. I know he likes him because of his East Coast background. He's done a really good job recruiting him."
Overall the visit was a good one according to his coach.
"When I talked to him on the phone while he was waiting for his plane at LAX he told me he was very excited and interested in UCLA," he said. "He mentioned how he liked the atmosphere and campus there along with the football team. They took him under his wing and showed him everything they could in his brief visit."
Next up for the four-star prospect is a visit to Iowa followed by Illinois on October 19th and Georgia Tech on November 24th.
One other school in the mix for Graham is Rutgers.
"He took an unofficial there two weeks ago," he said. "He's very interested in them too. He didn't want to take an official due to the proximity of Piscataway to Scranton."
DeAntona went on to discuss what kind of football player the No. 14 tight end in the country is.
"I believe Hubie is an all-around football player that we use in different ways," he said. "He was an all-state defensive end last year and also plays on offense and special teams. He's a player that'll do whatever you ask him to and is also on the honor roll. He takes academics very seriously."
