TJ Millweard has been committed to Arizona State since June but with the coaching changes there and at UCLA both programs are in play. The Forth Worth (Texas) All Saints Episcopal pro-style quarterback should have a final decision made within days.
Millweard, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, visited UCLA this past weekend and then had the Arizona State coaches in his house on Monday. He said it will be a tough decision whether to stay with the Sun Devils or flip his commitment to the Bruins.
"UCLA was great," Millweard said. "I really had a great visit there. They have great coaches there with high character and they really want you to be a better person so that was a great visit.

"The ASU coaches came by my house (Monday) and I got to meet with coach (Todd) Graham and coach (Mike) Norvell for the first time in person. That was great to meet them because I've already taken my official to ASU so unfortunately I can't go see them at ASU anymore unless it's an unofficial."
The three-star prospect who threw for 2,374 yards and 22 touchdowns in his senior season said the Arizona State coaches definitely impressed him with their message about the program's direction.
"It was really nice to see them in person and see what they're about," Millweard said. "I loved everything they said but I'm going to sleep on it for two nights and make my final decision in the next 24 or 48 hours.
"They met my expectations. I wanted to know more about coach Graham and his past so he really talked about his situation, his coaching, what he likes about Arizona State now, where the program is, about how he's really focusing on accountability, discipline and character and I really appreciate that as a quarterback and as a potential Sun Devil to really get to know that the coach really strives for those things."
Arizona State has definitely impressed Millweard but UCLA is right there as well and definitely has a chance to land his pledge.
There are numerous reasons why the Bruins stand out so much including academics and the players but coach Jim Mora really made an impression on Millweard and that could play a deciding factor.
"The reason I looked at UCLA at the very beginning was coach (Noel) Mazzone, who was at Arizona State and is now at UCLA," Millweard said. "I have a great relationship with him. Then when I got there it really blew me away just how beautiful the campus is and then I got to meet the professors from the business school and just what great people they were. They really help the football players out and that was great to know as a student-athlete.
"I really liked the players. I got to meet a lot of them and I really liked that. What really blew me away was coach Mora. I knew a little bit about his background going there but when you meet him in person and just hear him speak and what a high-quality person he is. I really liked that along with the other assistant coaches on the offensive side. I really loved everything they had to say and what great guys they really are."
