Offensive tackle Kenny Lacy (Phoenix, Ariz./Mountain Pointe) took an official visit to UCLA in early September and saw enough to make a verbal commitment to the Bruins. But the big tackle was back in Los Angeles this weekend and came away impressed again with the Bruins.

"It was a great game," Lacy said of UCLA's win against USC. "I wanted UCLA to win, but I was surprised at how well they played and how they handled USC."

To this point, UCLA's biggest win at home came against Nebraska -- when Lacy was in attendance for his official visit. But Lacy said the atmosphere on Saturday surpassed his previous trip and that he was very happy with the experience.

Though Lacy will continue to take visits -- Kansas State on Nov. 30, as well as Michigan and Vanderbilt -- he said his most recent trip to helped firm his resolve in his UCLA commitment.

"This did help," he said. "It made me even more committed and reassured me. I'm still going to take visits, but I'm pretty solid right now."
