UCLA and Hasiak

The recruitment of Kapolei (Hawaii) High offensive lineman Stan Hasiak continues for UCLA, despite his commitment to California. I was told a few more UCLA assistant coaches were in Hasiak’s home for a visit Thursday.
I am also told Hasiak, although saying he is “solid” in his commitment to Cal, is not sure where he wants to go to school.

    Honestly Brian – Recruiting has GOT to be your least favorite part of reporting on college sports.

    gubon13,

    I agree with you. But it’s only interesting to a few zealots on the blog. I don’t really give a rip about a high school kid until he’s signed on the dotted line. Before that it’s just anecdotal fluff.

    as per scout.com , he is no longer a commit to Cal.

  • Bruinswin

    LOL! Never give up, Never surrender! Go gettem Rick!

  • El Cajon Bruin

    Let’s all remember that in an interview he stated he was ‘solid’ to UCLA and then a week later flipped to Cal. I don’t want to bash on him, but his coach or parents should counsel him on what the word ‘solid’ actually means.

    Solid definitions:

    1) Slang. Excellent; first-rate.

    He just might think he is 1st rate recruit
    2) Of definite shape and volume; not liquid or gaseous.
    He is not gaseous. and has a definite shape.

    Heck, our former prez didn’t know wat is is.

    If we say we have a solid recruiting class, it means they are good quality.

    anyways, kinda being tongue and cheek here, so don’t take offense.

    But wait…Rivals.com still has Hasiak as a commit. Who’s lying?

  • Old School

    Hasiak just committed to Cal.

    Hasiak then de-committed and committed to UCLA.

    Then he de-committed and pledged to USC.

    Then he decomitted again and pledged to …

    This is getting old, is this guy really worth all the worry?

  • mike chat

    every good quality kid is worth it. One big positive, he was supposed to do a recruiting weekend at SUC this weekend and bailed. It will all be over in 5 1/2 days

  • MoeBruins

    It is nuts what pressure is put on these kids nonstop and what scrutiny they have to take. It does a disservice to everyone.

    Especially these people most of whom probably couldn’t even pick a Major when they entered collage not understanding and knocking a kid for being confused.

  • BruinJigs

    a few more days and we shall see where he ends up. I hope he is a Bruin, but I doubt it happens.

  • BruinGuy

    Old school asked: “This is getting old, is this guy really worth all the worry?”

    To us, no. To the coaches, yes.

  • VB

    Considering the fact that we literally had the WORST offensive line in the Pac10 last year definitely makes this guy worth the worry. WE NEED BEEF ON OUR LINE! No more converted defensive tackles and converted tight ends on our line!

    Actually, Feb 4 is the FIRST day a kid can sign a LOI. It doesn’t mean he has to. Remember Eric Lorig? He took an additional two months before deciding on Stanford.

  • BRUtus

    We really could use a guy like Stan to bolster our line. I hope he reconsiders and picks us. I picked UCLA over CAL back in the day and I’m simply an academic- if I was a football player – it’d be a no-brainer. Cmon Stan, come on down to Westwood!

  • UB (Ultimate Bruin)

    As I have oft said — They aren’t committed until they lace up their cleats and head out onto Spauldind Field. They could sign an LOI and still bolt for somewhere else and sit out. They could commit, go on a Mormon mission, come back, transfer, sit out and be a bust at QB. They could commit, ride an ATV in the off-season and . . . . well, you know.

    Tired of hearing about this guy.

  • BruinFaithful

    True Ultimate Bruin:

    But I would much rather have a bunch of 5 Star solid or soft commits, like SUC, anyday. Rather than, a bunch of locked down 3 Star recruits who really don’t have anywhere else worthy to go. CRN and staff will be fine. They just need to upgrade the level of talent.

    Remember how many wavering kids we had last year and we finished with a flurry. If I remember correctly, we really only lost one guy at the end. I’ll take those percentages and situations anyday. We will end up with a top 20 class for sure and depending on where the chips fall, anywhere from there up to 15 or 10. Not bad for an embarrassing 4-8 season.
