Omaha South tight end/defensive end Noah Fant returned from unofficial weekend visits to California and UCLA no closer to a final decision. 

It's likely he'll push back the commitment process, in fact. Fant told "The Bottom Line" on Friday that the Golden Bears and Bruins now comprise a top five along with Nebraska, Iowa and Vanderbilt, with Notre Dame picking up interest in the 6-foot-5, 210-pounder who could play on either side of the ball.

Fant had planned on trying to make a decision before his senior season at Omaha South began.

"Right now, I'm not sure, because each time I think I'll be ready, is the time more schools become interested," Fant said. "Notre Dame is talking to me pretty heavy. I'm waiting to see if it all cools down a little bit so I can make a commitment, or if picks up again."

Fant visited the West Coast for roughly five days, starting with the Cal visit and ending with the UCLA trip. Both schools, Fant said, are considering him for both sides of the ball. Fant met with the head coaches and offensive coordinators of both schools, he said.

Cal-Berkeley, located on the east shore of San Francisco Bay, was intriguing.

"It was actually a cool experience," Fant said. "You have all different types of people."

Fant, who is interested in eventually attending medical school, said Cal and UCLA both do a good job of integrating their med schools into the university culture, but Vanderbilt does the best job.
