Quenton Meeks had a fabulous showing at the UCLA Elite Camp earlier this week and he thoroughly enjoyed working with the coaching staff, an important step as he tries to figure out what's best in his recruitment.
A lot of schools are pursuing the San Diego (Calif.) Del Norte prospect and he said the Bruins will definitely stick around for a long time.
"These guys are really up there with the top of them," Meeks said of UCLA. "(The camp) kind of solidified that. Working with coach (Demetrice Martin) I definitely like the way he coaches and I love the energy of the coaching staff here, the feel, all the players, I just love it over here.
"I can't really narrow them down but Stanford sticks out, Cal, Washington State, Washington, Boston College, all of them stand out. I'm expecting more here coming soon. I don't know when I'll have that top list but I will say UCLA will be up there."
So far, the 6-foot-2, 195-pound prospect who looked good at receiver and defensive back during UCLA's camp has been offered by the Bruins, Arizona State, Boston College, Cal, Oregon State, Stanford, Utah, Washington and Washington State.
Meeks also camped at USC this week and admitted an offer from the Trojans would definitely be huge in his recruitment.
"No. 1 is getting the offer," Meeks said. "That's the direction it's going in. I've been talking to the coaches for a while, coach (Keith) Heyward mainly, that's definitely No. 1 to get the offer and then see what the school has to offer me from the academic side.
"It would mean a lot. USC is traditional. That would definitely mean a lot. Out of all these schools, I've been looking for that one as well. It would definitely be a big accomplishment for me."
The San Diego Del Norte recruit had considered a commitment prior to his senior season but that has become more difficult. With major offers coming in all the time, Meeks is no longer set on a timetable to make his decision.
"I was thinking about doing it before the high school season starts but my offer list keeps growing and growing and growing," Meeks said. "I want to see how many I can get, not just for ego, I don't care about any of that, I'm looking for the right school for me. Now I want to wait because the offers keep growing."
