UCLA Football looks to be in good position to land the 7th best receiver in the country as Theo Howard took an unofficial visit to Westwood this past week.
UCLA Football recruiting has improved every year Head Coach Jim Mora has been in Westwood. That trend looks as if it will continue upward if the Bruins are able to land 4-star wide receiver Theo Howard out of Westlake Village.

Today, Tracy Pierson of Bruin Report Online revealed that Howard and his parents had taken an unofficial visit to Westwood this past Monday in a video chat with Scout Now.
Shortly after de-committing from Oregon — where he had pledged his allegiance since the Spring — Howard had visited UCLA at fall camp out at Cal State San Bernardino.
Since de-commiting, Howard had his final two choices down to UCLA and crosstown rival USC. Though it seemed his recruitment was pointing in the Trojan’s direction, it now appears his favorite at this point could be the Bruins.
Pierson referenced the fact that Howard had tweeted out that he had made his decision, but that decision is not set to be revealed for some time.
Just to add full to the fire, Howard had also retweeted a message from Eric Sondheimer of the LA Times stating: “The Josh Rosen Era at UCLA begins on Saturday. You won’t be disappointed.”
Aside from Twitter speculation, Pierson added that he had sources tell him that he was “wearing all UCLA gear at Westlake High School today. So it all bodes pretty well for the Bruins.”
