"Cal did what all the other schools did," Moutra said. "It was pretty much all the same stuff.
"I'm still with UCLA," Moutra said. "I met Coach Rick Neuheisel and he's a really nice guy.
"From everything I've heard, Coach Neuheisel is an offensive coach and he likes to throw the ball," Moutra said. "So I like that.
"I'm going to visit Washington State this weekend and then that will be it as far as visits," Moutra said. "I haven't really talked to Washington State, but after I committed to UCLA they offered me a scholarship and trip to their campus.
