Dechaun Holiday has a handful of favorites and the four-star defensive back said one school in particular is recruiting him the hardest.
The San Marcos (Calif.) Mission Hills standout said UCLA is making him feel wanted as Holiday continues to develop his relationship with coach Jim Mora and defensive backs coach Demetrice Martin.
A lot of programs are coming after the four-star recruit but the Bruins are making the most serious run.
"Of course, (Martin) wants me to come," Holiday said. "He really wants me to come. We talk a lot about different things, different schemes he would want to put me in. I'm pushing toward him just because of the consistency and he really wants me to come to the school.
"Coach Mora and coach Martin try to get a hold of me as much as they can. All the UCLA coaches try to get in touch with me as much as they can. It's really busy right now."
The 6-foot-2, 207-pound prospect who usually plays cornerback but could also move to safety said UCLA, USC, Oregon, Oklahoma and Washington are his five early favorites.
Holiday, rated as the No. 15 cornerback and the No. 156 prospect in the 2015 class by Rivals.com, said Florida State is right in the thick of things as well but he needs to start taking unofficial visits and looking at officials before getting too serious about a frontrunner.
"I just have to go out and visit those schools," Holiday said.
A commitment is not expected until closer to National Signing Day. The four-star said he could take trips to Oklahoma, Oregon and Boise State soon. UCLA and USC stops are expected again, too.
