San Leandro, Calif., cornerback Jerrod Page has already established himself as one of the nation's best. The No. 73 player overall in the nation has offers from a who's who of national programs. Now the real questions - what team is going to get him?
"UCLA is probably my No. 1 school, but USC isn't that far behind," Page, who is 6-foot and 185 pounds, said.
"Los Angeles isn't that far from home, and my brother went to UCLA. So there is a good connection there with the Bruins and with the city."
Page said he also plans on visiting Washington and Arizona State for sure.
"I like the coaches at Arizona State a lot," Page said. "I don't know what makes them stand out, too. I guess it's just the way they recruit me. They are honest with everything."
Page, who had two touchdowns and eight tackles last Friday night, said Colorado and Illinois are the other candidates for the fifth official visit.
"Colorado has been recruiting me for a long time, and I like their style," Page said. "Illinois is a long-way from home, but I might want to check that out to see what it's like."
Either way, whoever gets Page will land themselves a real gem.
