Bryce Dixon has noticed some major changes at UCLA in recent years and the 2014 tight end from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure seems to like all of them.
The 6-foot-4, 230-pound prospect visited for the Arizona-UCLA game last weekend with teammates Ricky Town, Davonte Nunnery and others and saw an explosive offense put up 66 points.
Dixon also liked what he saw from the tight ends and UCLA has moved way up his list to one of his favorites.

"I see a dramatic change there," Dixon said. "When I went there to the Rose Bowl in my eighth grade year they lost to Oregon State so there are big changes.
"I think it's a very good school and I'm keeping them as one of my top schools. I like the way they use their tight end. They use their tight end like the way I play tight end so that's a big thing for me."
Dixon's recruitment has taken off this season after he was a sleeper prospect this summer at the B2G Elite Camp.
Through the fall, the Ventura St. Bonaventure standout has landed offers from Arizona, Cal, Colorado, Miami, Ohio State, UCLA and Washington.
Some others are also showing interest but after seeing UCLA up close and personal this past weekend the Bruins could be in good position as Dixon goes through his junior season.
"It's a nice place," Dixon said. "The stadium was full so that was really cool and I got the impression that it was a nice place to go to."
