ASU will get a shot at converting their recruiting class from good to great, UCLA is trying to land a blue chip tight end, and Cal is trying to solidify the status of their current commits

It's the penultimate visit weekend before signing day and it's a huge recruiting weekend for several schools, especially Arizona State, Cal and UCLA.

ASU visitors

ASU has a very good class right now, but they could potentially make it a great one if they can come from behind a steal a couple of recruits they are thought to be currently in second for. 5 star defensive lineman Rasheem Green and 5 star linebacker Porter Gustin will both be in town this weekend. USC is considered the leader for both of them right now, but both have already taken their unofficial visits to USC last week.

Former UCLA commit Cassius Peat will be there too and it wouldn't be shocking if he ended his recruitment by committing to the Sun Devils on this trip. Peat is an in-state recruit and has solid potential as an edge player. They'll also attempt to flip current Miami wide receiver commitment Terrell Chatman. They've had some success pulling kids out of Louisiana so we'll see if Chatman will be the next one on their list.

Cal visitors

With Cal, a big part of what they are doing this weekend is getting a ton of commitments on campusWith former wide receiver coach Rob Likens no longer there, they'll want to make wide receiver commits Austin Aaron, Grayson Bankhead, and Kanawai Noa all feel comfortable without the guy who was supposed to be their future coach there.

Sonny Dykes is going to want all of those commitments hanging around a couple of blue chip players who are still undecided. They'll get the chance to make a big impression on 4 star Jaylinn Hawkinswho is still considering Boise State, Oregon, Washington, and Utah as well ($)The other top uncommitted player who will be there is Frank Buncom IV. This is his last visit before his decision next week and Stanford is considered the heavy favorite with Notre Dame still in the mix as well.

UCLA visitors

This is the kind of the weekend that separates the middle of the pack from the big boys for UCLA. They already have a solid class with outstanding quality at the top end with 5 star quarterback Josh Rosen already on campus and 5 star pass rusher Keisean Lucier-South already committed, but if they can finish strong with who they have visiting this weekend, they will rivals USC's class for top end talent.

The Bruins are in the top 2 for tight end Chris ClarkHe'll be visiting this weekend and it would be fantastic for them if he ended up filling the hole that Alize Jones left when he flipped to Notre Dame. Another player that could fill that void is Tyrone Wheatley Jr.who will also be visiting. He flashes potential to be a dominating blocking tight end or he may even be a better fit playing defensive line if the chooses the Bruins.

No visit will be as big as getting offensive lineman Maea Teuhema on campus. The LSU commit will be there and adding him their class would make an already great offensive line haul even better. He might be the best run blocker in the entire recruiting class. It would have been great if another top lineman, Semisi Uluave, could have made it, but he cancelled his visit. Even without Uluave, it's still could be a weekend that sends ripples in recruiting throughout the Pac-12.
