St. Bonaventure duo checks out UCLA

The UCLA Bruins are looking to make their presence felt at Ventura (Calif.) St. Bonaventure, as they have already offered 2014 tight end Bryce Dixon and 2015 quarterback Ricky Town.

Dixon is one of the more heavily recruited players in the region, while Town will likely challenge for the top quarterback spot in the state, but 2014 cornerback prospect Davonte Nunnery is looking to get into the mix with UCLA recruiting as well. The 5-foot-10, 190-pound defensive back took his second unofficial visit to UCLA this past weekend, along with Town.

"There was a lot of spirit at the game from the fans," Nunnery said following UCLA's loss to Stanford. "The players and coaches all get along really well. It's like they're all family. I can see myself playing for UCLA."

While Nunnery continues to push for his first offer, Town already holds them from Miami and UCLA. Nunnery said they didn't have an opportunity to spend time with the UCLA coaches this weekend, but Town spent some important time with them two weeks ago, when he traveled to Westwood and spent an entire day with the staff.

"It was really cool just to get a tour of the campus, look around and get a feel for the experience," Town said. "I got to watch a little bit of the offense and I asked to get on the board in front of coach [Noel] Mazzone."

Town said the UCLA offense has already made an impression on him.

"The one thing that stands out is how many plays they get in," Town said. "They try to get 100-120 plays in and I think that's awesome. It's fast-paced and they get a lot of plays in and out. That's a huge plus."

The recruiting process is likely just beginning for Town, as Alabama and Stanford have recently entered the picture. He sent his highlight tape to Alabama and followed up with a phone call in which the Crimson Tide coaches expressed interest in the 6-foot-4, 190-pound quarterback.
