Ricky Town took another unofficial visit to UCLA this past weekend, a good sign for the Bruins as the 2015 quarterback from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure continues to build his relationship with the coaching staff.
UCLA lost to Stanford in the regular-season finale but it was still another good trip for Town, one of the top sophomores in Southern California.
"It was really cool to watch that game," Town said. "It was hard to watch them lose especially coming off that win over USC. Stanford is a good team though so it wasn't like a major surprise. A lot of the players were still pretty positive."

The Pac-12 championship is Friday night and Town will be watching. He's trying to get to Stanford for the game since the Cardinal started to show interest recently. It would be a big trip for Town but if he cannot make it he'll still watch on television.
"That should be fun to see," Town said. "I want to see how they make the adjustments and to see if they can get them the second time.
"I called Stanford and I'm trying to get down to the game. Nothing is set up but I'd love to see the championship. That would be fun. I haven't been there so I'm kind of looking forward to going there."
Alabama has also started getting involved with Town, who has offers from UCLA and Miami so far. It's still preliminary with the Crimson Tide but the Ventura St. Bonaventure standout is hopeful communication continues with that staff.
"It was just a phone call from Alabama," Town said.
"I sent them my highlights and they liked what they saw from me. They said whenever I want to come down for a game I can come down and they'd like me at camp this year. It was nothing serious but they know who I am now."
