UCLA commit not looking at others

Bolu Olorunfunmi admits his recruitment has slowed way down after his UCLA commitment. The Fresno (Calif.) Clovis North standout could not be happier.
"I would say it slowed down because of my commitment," Olorunfunmi said. "It's been average right now. I'm completely satisfied. At this point, I don't really care that much for it. I'm satisfied right now."
The 5-foot-10, 216-pound three-star prospect committed to the Bruins in early March and after that happened Stanford offered. Olorunfunmi said he still was going to take an official visit to Notre Dame in the fall.
That plan has changed since the Fresno Clovis North standout said he just wants to focus on his future at UCLA and not be concerned with other programs.
"I'm not sure about that anymore," Olorunfunmi said. "I'll just be taking one official visit to UCLA. My commitment is 100 percent. There are other options but I'm still 100 percent committed."
It's not like Olorunfunmi does not have other options. Cal, Fresno State, Louisville, Nevada, Northwestern, Notre Dame, Oregon State, San Diego State, Stanford, Utah and Washington State have all offered but the three-star seems to be shutting everything else down.
Unless there are drastic changes, Olorunfunmi looks 100 percent committed to the Bruins.
"My relationship with the running backs coach is a really strong bond and I'm just really excited for what they have in store for me the minute I get there," Olorunfunmi said. "My goal is not to redshirt and it's looking clear for me that I won't redshirt.
"The whole coaching staff is all great. I talk to different coaches every week and they reassure me that I made the right choice. My family is on board with me. Everyone is on board with me so I've made the right choice. I'm so excited to get there and that's why I've shut down my recruiting."
