Cal is the latest offer for Devin Lucien, a four-star wide receiver from Encino (Calif.) Crespi, and now the 6-foot-1, 189-pound prospect has to figure out whether he'll visit with the Golden Bears or go to Miami in two weekends.
"They're high on my list," Lucien said of Cal. "I don't know what I'm going to do with my visit situation yet. I just don't know. I have to talk to my parents."
Lucien will visit Colorado this weekend and he has lots of interest in the Buffaloes mainly because of the new coaching staff.
Coach Jon Embree, offensive coordinator/running backs coach Eric Bieniemy and wide receivers coach Bobby Kennedy have been coming hard after the Crespi standout.
"Colorado is just a great school all around," Lucien said. "The coaching staff that's there with coach Embree, coach Kennedy and coach Bieniemy, they're all great guys.
"I love all those coaches. They're always calling me. They always talk to me. I know they probably call all the recruits the same way but it seems like they're very interested. They want me to help them build up again so they could possibly be a national championship team."
UCLA moved up for Lucien in a big way after last weekend's visit with the Bruins.
Rated No. 28 at wide receiver and in the California state rankings by Rivals.com, Lucien said UCLA is one of his favorites after meeting with coach Rick Neuheisel and talking with his son, Jerry, also a 2011 recruit.
"I love UCLA and I didn't think I was going to like them as much as I did," Lucien said.
"I heard a lot about coach Neuheisel and he's just a great guy. I get along really well with his son and I was able to see his son on the visit. I have a really good vibe with all the players there. They're one of the top schools on my list now because of this weekend."
Pittsburgh has also recently offered but the Panthers could be a long shot for Lucien, who has also visited Arizona State and Kentucky.
Michigan has been recruiting the four-star prospect but Lucien said new coach Brady Hoke wants him to play defense for the Wolverines and he's not interested in switching sides. Lucien said Michigan has been cut from his list.
"I'm not going to Michigan," he said. "They're off my list because they want me to play defense with the new coach they have there. I'm not looking at Michigan anymore."
