2014 Bellflower (Calif.) Bosco defensive back Jaleel Wadood camped with USC on Sunday.

Wadood, an Arizona State verbal commit, has yet to pick up an offer from the Trojans but thought his third time camping at USC could have been the charm.

No luck, yet, though for the four-star cornerback.

"I left without an offer," Wadood explained to FOX Sports NEXT on the telephone. "I was shocked, after all the times I've gone up there, all the good days I've had.

"My dad is pretty upset, I was too," he continued. "I'm pretty bummed about it."

Wadood, listed at 5-foot-11 160-pounds, said he thought he did "great" at the Trojans' camp. "I played corner all day, I guess that's what they wanted to see me as, I didn't play safety at all," he explained. "I balled."

Wadood says he spoke mostly with defensive coordinator Clancy Pendergast and receivers coach Tee Martin at the camp. According to Wadood, Pendergast told him he'd watched his film and "liked him a lot."

Martin has been Wadood's main recruiter throughout the process. "I can tell that Coach Martin really wants me there," Wadood said. "He's someone who talks to me all the time, a lot over the last four weeks. He's a great guy and he really wants me to be there."

Although he didn't leave USC with the offer Sunday, Wadood thinks there's still time to pick one up, but admitted he's growing frustrated with the process.

Wadoods' commitment to ASU is considered a 'soft verbal' at the time.
