A busy week is wrapping up for Connor Humphreys after he landed offers from Boston College and UCLA and he's also hearing from another Pac-12 powerhouse.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound four-star defensive end from Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic recently won the defensive line MVP award at the Rivals Camp Series in Los Angeles, further solidifying his place as one of the top players in the West.
"Both schools said they sat down as a staff and watched my tape and then they both said they loved it," Humphreys said.
"I'm sure the Rivals Camp helped a lot especially with USC, who I talked to, and they said they want to get me down before they offer but they said they're close."
Humphreys, rated as the No. 232 prospect in the 2014 class by Rivals.com, had high praise for UCLA and an unofficial visit could definitely happen soon.
The Bruins are definitely intriguing to Humphreys, who also has offers from Arizona State, Boise State, Cal, Oregon State, Washington State, Wyoming and others.
The four-star is taking a trip to Cal this weekend.
"I know UCLA is a great school and has a great program," Humphreys said.
"I definitely want to go down and visit. I can definitely see myself playing for them one day. I just want to make sure everything is right before I make my decision. UCLA is definitely there for me but I'll wait and see some other schools."
USC is one of the programs Humphreys wants to see before making his commitment. The Trojans have stepped up interest recently and he could do a double-dip in Los Angeles in the coming weeks.
"They want to get me down and watch a practice so I can see them play and how they run their program," Humphreys said of USC.
"After spring break I'm going to get down there and visit UCLA and USC the same weekend but I don't know which weekend that's going to be yet."
