Myles Jack has started taking some visits to Pac-12 schools and his trip to Cal this past weekend went really well as the Bellevue, Wash., prospect toured the campus, met the coaching staff and came away really impressed with the new facilities.
"Their coaches are really cool," Jack said of Cal's staff. "I can relate to them. The facility and everything is new and they already have a good program. The facility makes them even higher.
"The coaches are cool and I met some of their players and they really like Cal and that made them really high for me."
On Tuesday, Jack watched practice at UCLA and got to see the campus. The three-star loved it and said the Bruins are definitely in serious contention for his commitment.
"I liked the housing there for the students and the academic support is great," Jack said. "I really liked their practice and how up-tempo it is while I watched it.
"The coaches are energetic. They're really involved with the practice. Most of the coaches have been to the NFL and they know what they're talking about. They have a lot of years of NFL experience so they know what they're doing.
"They sit high. It made me like them even more. I actually got to visit for a practice and go to the dorms and see what campus life would be like. I ate in the cafeteria and it was a good visit so it helped."
Jack, who could play running back, defensive end or linebacker in college, said he's thinking about making his decision either before his senior season or in the middle but wants to get things done by the time Bellevue makes its playoff run.
The 6-foot-2, 215-pound prospect has offers from Cal, Oregon State, Stanford, UCLA, Utah, Virginia, Washington and Washington State. He said Oregon, Wisconsin and Georgia Tech have also been showing an awful lot of interest.
No frontrunner has emerged since Jack still has a few months before he wants to make his decision
"There is no real leader," Jack said. "I'm still narrowing it down. Everyone is even pretty much."
