Tanner Vallejo did not have a chance to see much of UCLA's practice on Thursday but he did witness some meetings and was thoroughly impressed by the new coaching staff.
Vallejo said he loved how the coaches handled the meetings and he could tell the players were taking things seriously.
"We didn't stay for the whole practice but we got a tour of the campus and I really liked it," Vallejo said.

"I didn't get to see any of the practices but I heard some of the meetings and they were pretty intense. You could just tell. There was a little yelling and you could just tell guys were focused."
The Grass Valley (Calif.) Nevada Union inside linebacker said an offer from the Bruins was not discussed during his visit but Vallejo could very well return in the coming months to see another workout.
So far, the 6-foot-3, 225-pound prospect lists offers from Arizona, Colorado, Fresno State and Nevada. Vallejo said another trip to UCLA is definitely possible.
He will be at Nevada on Saturday, is planning a trip to Colorado sometime in May and other trips are possible as well.
"I'm not sure about an offer yet from UCLA," Vallejo said.
"They said they want me to come back and watch camp if I can. They said they watched my highlight film and liked it so I'll probably come back down here in May to watch more."
Vallejo, a three-star prospect by Rivals.com, also lists interest from Iowa State, Nebraska, Oregon and Washington. In his junior season, the Nevada Union standout averaged more than 14 tackles per game and had 158 stops on the season.
