Malachi Dupre definitely likes UCLA and LSU a lot but the four-star wide receiver said there are others that are sticking out in his recruitment as well.
The River Ridge (La.) John Curtis standout said last week at the B2G Elite Camp that Florida State, Clemson, Arkansas and Auburn are also sticking around and that it's not just the Bruins and Tigers fighting it out in his recruitment.
"There are others," Dupre said.
Other schools are involved but LSU and UCLA are high on his list. Dupre has visited UCLA a handful of times, including three recent trips, and his family's relationship with coach Jim Mora could play a major factor in his decision-making process.
"I love it," Dupre said. "This is like my fifth time being here, the third time this year. The coaching staff is what I really like about it.
"Coach (Eric) Yarber has a lot of knowledge. Coach Mora has been good friends with my dad since I was born. They are long-time friends. The whole defensive staff is amazing, too, and the players are great. I have a great relationship with them."
One credo in recruiting, though, is that Louisiana kids usually stay local. The John Curtis standout said he has many close friends on the LSU team, it's close to home and those things could definitely factor into his decision.
"A lot of my best friends are there," Dupre said. "Duke (Riley) just reported. I'm really close with Odell (Beckham). Ed (Paris) and Chris (Hardeman) are going and we're really close. It's the hometown school.
"It's hard. I don't really have a decision."
