A.J. Holman said he really enjoyed his recent visit to UCLA's practice but the Bruins have not discussed an offer yet.
The Orange (Calif.) Lutheran athlete said he's been talking some with assistant coach Adrian Klemm and he's optimistic that things can pick up over the summer.
"I was down there with Kenny Orjioke and I went there to see what it was like and it was cool," Holman said.
"I talked to coach Klemm in person after talking to him on the phone so it was really good. I liked how the practice was set up and I liked the school. It was a really nice campus.
"I just briefly talked with coach Klemm over the phone. I played phone tag with him. It's kind of hard to get him on his schedule and then my schedule with track. I just wanted to go and meet him in person."
Holman, who finished with 41 receptions for 628 yards and five touchdowns in his junior season, said he sees a significant difference in UCLA's program with the new coaching staff and he likes how things are trending.
UCLA is definitely one of the schools that interests Holman, who's still waiting for his first offer but is hearing from Oregon, Colorado, Washington State, Arizona State and some others.
"They'll be tougher and more tough-minded," Holman said. "They're going to put up more of a fight and be stronger. It's a different environment and a different style.
"There's no offer yet. We're just still talking."
