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 1 with OL/DL Isaac Seumalo, with video at the end:
Ruffman: What did you think of the camp? The coaches? Your performance?
Seumalo: “Today was great. I thought I did fairly well but it was really tiring. It was fun
though, I had a lot of fun.”
You were playing on both sides of the ball a lot today, which side do you think you’ll
play on in college?
IS: “I’m not sure yet because I like both a lot. Each one is different and right now I’m
just trying to do as well as I can at both.”
Did you get to know any of the guys at the camp?
“I was able to talk a lot with Eduardo Middleton quite a bit. Also I spent a lot of time
with the kids from Serra (Kache Palacio and Royce Dodd), too, during a team drill.
They were good guys.”
Are there any schools sticking out to you at this point?
“Not yet. I’m still feeling out the process and going with the flow.”
Your dad coaches at Oregon State and he could potentially be your position coach if
you played defense, is that going to have a bearing on your decision?
“No, not at all. My dad is a dad first and a coach second. He’s going to let me make
my own choice.”
