The recruitment of Malcolm Jones (Westlake Village, Calif./Oaks Christian) could be coming to an end shortly. Jones is down to Stanford and UCLA and just visited the Cardinal over the weekend.
"I just talked to him and he said he still likes UCLA," Oaks Christian coach Bill Redell said. "He liked Stanford and has some family pushing him there for the academics, but UCLA is where he wants to go.
"He told me a week ago he would have his decision made before October and today is the last day of September, so I know he should be getting close. If there's a family struggle going on, obviously it could take longer but as of today, he wants to go to UCLA."
Jones is one of the top backs in the West and a very talented linebacker prospect as well. In fact, some feel he may project better on the defensive side of the ball, although he wants to play running back in college.
