One of the more under-the-radar prospects who took an unofficial visit to UCLA last weekend was Michael Greer out of Palm Springs, Calif., and the 6-foot-2, 193-pound outside linebacker might not be relatively unknown for much longer.
Apparently, a coach from UCLA stopped by one of Greer's games this season and he has received really positive news from the coaching staff. No offer yet but the Bruins are watching him.
Greer, who has about 32 tackles and 3.5 sacks through five games, said UCLA coach Jim Mora might be heading to Palm Springs to see him play soon. He's hopeful that could help him with an offer.
"It was a good environment and I liked it down there," Greer said. "The fan base for UCLA is getting a lot bigger now that they have a new coaching staff so I liked it there a lot. It was a good game to see.
"I got a good sense from them because I know the coaches well like coach Mora and some other coaches. It was a good vibe down there from everybody. I like how they get all hyped there."
Illinois State has offered and Greer said he's mainly hearing from UCLA, Colorado, San Diego and a few other schools.
Greer hopes by sending out more film and possibly having some coaches see him in person, he can be impressive enough to keep them interested and possibly land more offers as his senior season continues.
"They said they want to see a little more film," Greer said of the UCLA coaching staff.
"I guess the head coach is recruiting me hard though. They went to my last game watching me and I talked to the coach about it and he said coach Mora might come out to one of my next games. That's exciting."
Palm Springs is 3-2 so far this season. It has a bye this weekend.
