Recruiting Notes/News: Keenan Graham Sticking With UCLA?

So signing day is coming up tomorrow. I believe rye will be setting up a recruiting open thread/post sometime during the day so folks can follow the recruiting happenings on the home page. But just in case I will throw up some of the notes and news that are filtering out tonight.

I guess there was some worries about Las Vegas DE Keenan Graham's committment since he was also considering Utah. Per Dohn (who spoke to Keenan's high school coach) the kid is sticking with UCLA:

"He's going to UCLA," Silverado coach Andy Ostolaza said. "I don't know how close it got (with Utah). I think it was a passing interest. ...He has family in Utah and he was up there during the Christmas break, and I think that's why the whole thing about Utah came up.
"He and I had a long talk about it (Monday) night, and he called the Utah coaches and let them know he was going to UCLA."

While Keenan is sticking with UCLA, Billy Sanders (the TE/DE from Idaho who had committed to UCLA after decommitting from Miami) is wavering between the Bruins and the Canes. No one has any clue how the story will end up with him.

Other kids whose final decisions are up in the air:

  • LB Manti Te'o of Punahou High (Honolulu)
  • OL Xavier Su'a-Filo of Timpview High (Provo, Utah)
  • OL Stan Hasiak of Kapolei (Hawaii) High
  • RB Damien Thigpen of Stonewall Jackson (Manassas, Va.)
  • WR Randall Carroll of Cathedral High (Los Angeles)
  • DB Brandon Sermons of Diamond Ranch High (Pomona)

I am feeling good about Thigpen (deciding between UCLA, Notre Dame (and Miss. State I think). I think Sermons will stick us (over UDub). My gut tells me Te'o to Southern Cal and Su'a-Filo to Utah. I have no clue wrt to Hasiak (deciding between Cal and UCLA) and Carroll (down to ASU (?),  Southern Cal and UCLA). bucknellbruin posted link to predictions of staffers here.

What does everyone else think?
