In an ESPN insider blurb on ILB Cameron Smith (Granite Bay, Calif./Granite Bay), Smith visited both Southern Cal and UCLA unofficially. He described his impressions on both campuses:
I got to check out the facilities [at USC]," Smith said. "They were beautiful. Everything looked great and really impressed me. I liked it a lot. And UCLA was just as nice. They said they are putting in new facilities in nine months.
So maybe UCLA is further along in its upgrades than publicly announced? Or, it is entirely possible that this was already announced and I just missed it. This whole work and family thing really gets in the way of my rabid and unhealthy desire to consume every last bit of available information on UCLA football and basketball.
