UCLA holds edge for 2016 athlete

There has been a lot of talk this off-season about Beau Bisharat and his athleticism and the 2016 prospect recently landed his first Pac-12 offer.
Washington State jumped on board with the Carmichael (Calif.) Jesuit standout and the Cougars like him at a bunch of different positions.
That's part of the draw when it comes to Bisharat - he is an athlete and can play on either side of the ball.

"One of the coaches came by and I don't think he really knew about me," Bisharat said. "He always comes through the area and he said he was impressed.
"I guess the whole coaching staff gathered around the computer to watch my tape and the coaching staff was pretty much down to offer me.
"The wide receiver coach said he wants me to play there and the running back coach said he wants me to play running back and linebacker so I don't really know what I'll be playing. Position is still definitely up in the air."
Washington State and Colorado have offered the 2016 prospect and many others are showing early interest. Bisharat said he's hearing from teams across the Pac-12 and even though he doesn't have a clear leader, UCLA definitely does stand out at this point.
"It's just getting kicked off," Bisharat said. "I don't know what I'm thinking yet. If I had to pick a favorite UCLA would be my favorite right now.
"I went down there last year to watch one of the volleyball games because one of my friends plays for the team and I love it down there. I love the atmosphere at UCLA and it's an awesome education so that helps."
The 6-foot-3, 203-pound prospect is also hearing from San Jose State, Nevada and plenty of teams in the Pac-12 early on.
