Wadood Reschedules Visit

2014 Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco defensive back Jaleel Wadood wasn't able to visit UCLA this past weekend, but has plans to reschedule...

It was another big game for Jaleel Wadood when the Braves took down Santa Ana (Calif.) Mater Dei 24-2 on Friday. Wadood was outstanding on both sides of the ball, making plays in the slot, out of the backfield and at safety. No player out west does more to help his team than Wadood and he has elevated his stock considerably this year.

On the recruiting front, Wadood committed to California back in the summer but will take all five of his official visits. He was supposed to visit UCLA this past weekend on an official visit but had to postpone it for later in the year.

"My dad wasn't able to make it and he's a big part of the recruiting process for me," Wadood said. "He's out of town so I'm going to take that visit for the Arizona State game now (Nov. 23). This weekend, I'm going to Utah for an official visit and they're actually playing ASU too.

"I'm for sure going to take an official visit to Cal but still need to work out the date. My last trip will be to USC or Washington, I'm still not sure which one yet. If I visit Washington, I can obviously take an unofficial visit to USC so that's something I'm looking in to right now."

Wadood said he doesn't have a time frame for when he'll make a final decision but maintains his commitment to Cal is still solid.

"I think sometimes people forget that I'm still committed there," Wadood said. "I really like Cal a lot and they're coming after me as hard as ever. Cal and USC are probably coming after me the hardest and UCLA is right there too. All of these schools are recruiting me really to be honest so it's going to be a tough decision for me.

"I'm going to sit down with my dad and we're going to figure it all out. He has a real good handle on the schools and what to look for. He knows what best for me and likes a lot of the coaches recruiting me so I'm just really going to lean on him for advice."
