Sean Dowling was back at UCLA again this past weekend and he saw the Bruins play probably their best football yet this season in a convincing win against Arizona.
It was especially fun for the Fallbrook, Calif., three-star offensive tackle since he's been committed to UCLA since April and has never wavered.
He's taking other official visits but Dowling's commitment seems firmer than ever especially after having another good experience at UCLA.
"It was pretty great," Dowling said. "That was the most full the stadium has been when I've been there. There were about 90,000 people there so that was pretty cool and they put up 66 points on the team that beat USC so that was pretty cool, too."
Dowling arrived at the Rose Bowl early so he had a chance to chat with some assistant coaches, go in the locker room and he said it was a great time all day.
The 6-foot-6, 265-pound recruit said he has no doubts about playing football for the Bruins.
"I got there early and I got to talk with coach (Adrian) Klemm and coach (Marques Tuiasosopo) a lot and I got to go in the locker room pre-game and post-game. It's going really well.
"Every time I go back up there I'm reminded why I committed and why I love it so much. I was up there for the loss to Oregon State and I still felt the love and still felt it's the place for me. I can't wait to be a Bruin."
Dowling has already taken official visits to Oklahoma and Washington State. Trips are also being planned for Vanderbilt and Oregon State but the Fallbrook standout says he sees really no scenario where he doesn't end up with the Bruins.
