Valuable trip for Brandt-Sims

Isaiah Brandt-Sims doubled up last weekend at UCLA when he was on campus for the track junior day but he also checked out the football team while there.
The Wenatchee, Wash., standout will probably be a two-sport athlete in college so getting a more in-depth feel for what the Bruins could offer was definitely important to the three-star recruit.
Brandt-Sims, who has nine offers so far in his recruitment, said the UCLA coaches said they would watch his highlight film soon, familiarize themselves with his ability and continue to recruit him in the coming months but no offer was discussed.

"I came down there and it was a track junior day and during that I got to see a little bit of practice," Brandt-Sims said.
"I was only (at football practice) for maybe 15-20 minutes. It was kind of toward the end and I talked to the head coach. We kind of walked around and I just went back to the track junior day.
"They do a high intensity practice. I thought it was pretty cool. I didn't get a chance to watch a lot though."
So far, Brandt-Sims has been offered by Arizona State, Colorado State, Harvard, Idaho, SMU, Utah, Washington, Wyoming and Yale.
An offer from UCLA might have to wait but if Brandt-Sims could figure out a way to return for summer camp that could go a long way in the decision-making process for the Bruins' coaches.
"They haven't really seen me very much," Brandt-Sims said.
"I talked to coach (Jim) Mora and he's going to watch my film maybe in the next couple days. He doesn't know a lot about me but they asked if I could come back for one of their camps in June.
"I love it there. I could see myself being there. I have to talk to my mom maybe."
Some SEC interest has come in for Brandt-Sims as the Washington prospect said Ole Miss and Mississippi State have reached out recently.
