Pollard on the fence?

Despite still having a year left in his high school football career, Cajon defensive back Marlon Pollard has been a UCLA verbal commit for almost a year. However, there are rumblings that Pollard, a 6-1, 160-pound four-star prospect according to Rivals.com and Scout.com, might be looking around.

One of those speculators is Pete Sampson of IrishIllustrated.com. In a master list of defensive prospects written yesterday, Sampson has this to say about Pollard: “Despite being a commitment to UCLA, Pollard wants to look at Notre Dame. He said he’ll visit the Irish this fall. As a rule, commits that take visits elsewhere almost always switch schools in the end.

It’s best to take a lot of the individual school websites with a grain of salt, as they write to the fans of that school, but its definitely a story we’ll be tracking through the summer and into the fall.
