Keisean Lucier-South was at the UCLA spring game this past weekend, had another chance to talk with the coaches, see the role he would play for the Bruins and he definitely enjoyed the trip.
The four-star defensive end from Orange (Calif.) Lutheran kept a close watch on Owamagbe Odighizuwa since that's the position UCLA will want him to play - a hybrid defensive end and outside linebacker.
"It was really fun," Lucier-South said. "It was fun meeting all the coaches again and talking to them. I watched the game with all the recruits. During the game I was watching my position and seeing what they want me to do. I really liked it.

"I was watching Owa Odighizuwa. I watched him the whole time. He is their hybrid guy so I was watching him.
"Right now I'm doing it with my high school teammates and we're doing a lot of one-on-ones. I'm playing some outside linebacker so I'm getting used to it now."
Lucier-South, rated as the sixth-best weak-side defensive end in the 2015 class by Rivals.com, also had some talks with coach Jim Mora and assistant Jeff Ulbrich. UCLA is not pushing a commitment but making it clear they want Lucier-South in this class.
The Orange Lutheran standout said UCLA is in great shape in his recruitment.
"They told me to take my time and that I don't need to rush," Lucier-South said. "I really like UCLA right now because I like coach Mora and coach Ulbrich. They were telling me to take my time and to not rush.
"UCLA is probably I would say the team to beat right now. I have been talking to them the most right now and I've seen them and been to their school the most so they're the team to beat."
The four-star is planning official visits to Michigan and Notre Dame this fall. A trip to Texas this summer is also a possibility.
