UCLA represent in Palo Alto
UCLA head coach Karl Dorrell and his coaching staff have started out the 2007 recruiting class on a bang.
The Bruins currently have five commitments, and they've beaten cross town rival Southern Cal in head-to-head battles for two of them.
On Saturday, three of the Bruins five commitments took part in the Stanford NIKE Training Camp in Palo Alto.
San Diego (Calif.) St. Augustine quarterback Chris Forcier, Los Angeles Crenshaw defensive tackle Brian Price and Fresno (Calif.) Edison cornerback Courtney Vinney all made their presence felt as Dorrell and the rest of their future Bruin coaches watched.
A lot players like Forcier may not even take part in the NIKE camp because of the fact they really have nothing to gain since they've already committed. However, Forcier said that's not his approach at all.
For Price, his goal on Saturday was pretty simple-to prove he is the top defensive tackle in the state of California.
Price came in at just under 6-foot-2 and weighed in at 270 pounds. He ran his 40-yard dash in 5.0 seconds, which was one of the better marks for the lineman in the camp.
Price, like Forcier also felt a strong bond with the Dorrell and the Bruin coaching staff and that's why he chose them over teams like USC.
