Town takes important trips

Ricky Town has been busy taking multiple Pac-12 road trips as recruiting continues for the 2015 quarterback from Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure.
The 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect who looked good at the Rivals Camp in Los Angeles recently returned from Stanford and Arizona State and two weekends ago stopped by UCLA and USC.
The Bruins have already offered him and he was definitely impressed after watching a recent Saturday practice. What he likes most about USC is that the offense is similar to his at St. Bonaventure so it would be a smooth transition.
"I went to (the UCLA) practice and that was really cool," Town said. "I like their tempo. Their tempo is sweet. It's really fast and upbeat and it's a really great atmosphere to play in. That was definitely something that really appealed to me.
"We went to USC afterward, my dad and I, to watch their spring game and I was really impressed with the offense. It's similar to ours and that's something to definitely consider because it would be an easier switch rather than having to learn new concepts.
"I like what both schools are doing and both are definitely among the top ones I'm looking at."
So far, UCLA and Miami have offered the 2015 quarterback and he said USC has shown a lot of interest but the message he's receiving from a bevy of programs is to wait until his junior season starts.
The Trojans basically told him that during his recent visit.
"They said they want to get to know me a little better," Town said.
"I got some numbers for the coaches and they said to give them a call because they can't call me. Every school I've been talking to lately said to wait until September 1 because they're waiting for me to become a junior before they do anything. That's what every college is telling me."
From his most recent visits, Town said UCLA, USC and Stanford impressed him the most.
Washington is getting a little more involved and the St. Bonaventure standout said he could take a trip to Alabama in the next couple months as the Crimson Tide step up their recruiting efforts.
"I'm curious to see what Alabama is about," Town said. "I'm trying to get a trip down there in early June so that's one I'm really looking at, too. I've had a lot more contact lately with them. They seem to be more interested in me."
