Inside UCLA Campus Correspondent Jacob Ruffman also put together some quick interviews at the Above and Beyond Lineman camp yesterday at Spaulding Field. Ruffman is a recruiting enthusiast and a terrific young writer, and I hope to have him as a frequent presence to ramp up our recruiting coverage. This is some great stuff, with more interviews to follow.
Here’s Round 2 with DE Eli Ankou, video at the end:
Ruffman: This is your first time out to UCLA, what did you think of the school/camp?
Ankou: “It was awesome, there’s good weather, good atmosphere. The coaches were great
and they really know what they’re talking about. I was really motivated to do my
best and show them what I can do.”
JR: What did the coaches do for you during the camp?
EA:”They showed me how to use my hips a bit more and at the end of the one-on-ones I
was able to exploit that more. It was great to get those pointers and use them in live
JR: What schools are you looking at currently?
EA: “I currently have three offers: UCLA, Virginia and Vanderbilt. I also have high
interest from Michigan state, Rutgers, Akron and some other schools up north.”
JR: What are your thoughts about UCLA?
EA: “I really like the environment of the school as a whole. When you walk out of here
you walk out with something valuable. Also, the coaches are great and the facilities
are really good as well.”
