It took a little longer than expected but in late December, Los Alamitos (Calif.) wide out Jeremy Childs committed to UCLA. That commitment now looks a little on the soft side as a new school has jumped in to the mix.
Childs, 6-0, 180 pounds was recently named 1st team all-state by CalHisports.com and had a strong week of practice at the CaliFlorida Bowl. He took visits to UCLA and Arizona State before choosing the Bruins after his visit (Dec. 17).
"I'm going to take a visit in the next couple of weeks to Boise State and that might be the best fit for me," Childs said. "I think the offense there is a better fit for me the way they throw the ball and use a lot of four wide receiver sets. It's not final or anything and UCLA is still there but I'm looking forward to taking this visit to Boise State and then I should have a better idea of where I stand."
One factor that could play a role is Childs has yet to pass the SAT although the receiver said that's not an issue in his thinking right now. Reportedly UCLA has yet to officially take Childs commitment because of the test score.
"No, that has nothing to do with it," Childs said. "I'm not even worried about that because I know I'll score high on it. I'll probably be in the 1000 range so me being a qualifier is a non-issue. The whole thing for me is trying to find the best fit for me and right now, I think Boise State might be a better overall fit."
