UCLA is dream school for 2016 athlete

Damian Alloway had an unforgettable week.
The 2016 athlete from Fontana (Calif.) Summit first landed an offer from Cal, which was quickly followed up by UCLA and then Washington State wrapped it up with the third offer.
"It's been very exciting," Alloway said.
"Getting Cal, just being Cal, that was big to me. Then I talked to UCLA like an hour later really and that's my dream school.
"That one coming from coach (Demetrice Martin), that made it so much more special. Washington State coming in that made my whole week. Three offers in one week and I'm just looking to keep going and get as many offers as I can."
The 5-foot-10, 170-pound athlete said UCLA is his dream school and that he grew up watching the Bruins. To be fair, he also told a reporter that USC was a favorite but the Trojans haven't been too involved in his recruitment yet.
"I've just always liked (UCLA) since I was little," Alloway said. "I can see myself playing there. When I picture myself playing college football I can see myself playing at UCLA.
"But I'm going to wait out the process. I'm going to talk to my other choices, talk to some other coaches and see how they want to work with me. I want to take visits first before I make any commitments."
Alloway's preferred positions would be slot receiver or running back. He said Washington, Arizona and Arizona State are showing the most new interest.
Staying closer to home is definitely a strong possibility not necessarily because of the location but the conference.
"I like the Pac-12 because it's a lot of speed and that's where I think I would excel," Alloway said. "I really want to be on the offensive side either slot or running back. I think I can do damage at both positions. If they keep me at both that's even better for me."
