Wadood Does It All

A big season by the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco athlete, Jaleel Wadood, is keeping schools on him...

Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco athlete Jaleel Wadood committed to California in July and said he's still holding on to his word with the school.

"The coaches make me feel like I'm at home," Wadood said. "They [care] about me as a player on the field, and me as a person in life, so that's what stuck out to me. They're just great people and it's a great atmosphere up there."

But while he remains committed, he is continuing to hear from other schools, specifically, Cal's Pac-12 rivals.

"I'm hearing from UCLA, Washington, USC, Cal, Oregon State and Oregon," Wadood said. "I'm still going to try and take all my visits to see what all those schools have to offer."

As for visits, Wadood took a trip to Oregon State in September and has one with Oregon scheduled for October 26, one which he rescheduled. Oregon is recruiting the 5-foot-11, 170-pound corner as a wide receiver.

With an interception on defense and five catches for 49 yards and a touchdown on offense, Wadood had an impressive game against Trinity League rival Santa Margarita on Oct. 11.

"I think me and my team came out and executed our game plan," he said. "We just played great as a team. It was our first game in the league, everyone was fired up here and we met our expectations tonight."
