Does UW Offer Change Things For Cal Commit?

Now that the Huskies have offered current Cal commit, Ayala (Chino Hills, Ca.) Malik Psalms, have things opened for the talented defensive back?

"I went to their camp and they offered me right after," Psalms told "It was really great getting to work with coach (Jimmy) Lake and seeing how they do things.

"I really had a great time while I was up there at the camp and really happy they offered."

Psalms committed to California back at the end of April and has remained steadfast in his decision even with other schools coming in and offering.

Did Washington's offer change things?

"Nah, I'm still committed to Cal right now, but the offer from Washington was pretty big," Psalms said. "They have a great program up there (in Seattle) and I've known about coach (Chris) Petersen for a while because of what he was able to do over at Boise State.

"I'm still happy with my decision to commit to Cal, but I definitely want to get up (to Seattle) for an official visit this fall because you only get to go through this once and you need to make sure the school you choose is the right one."

The other schools to offer the talented corner are Nevada, San Diego State, San Jose State and Utah State and he said the main theme has been his size.

"I'm 6'2 and when you're a corner, you sorta stick out," Psalms said. "You can't teach size and that's what a lot of schools like about me."

Psalms was unsure of which other camps he plans to hit, but he is currently eyeing the USC Rising Stars camp and UCLA's camp as well.

As a junior last season for the Bulldogs, Psalms posted 54 tackles, an interception and eight pass breakups.

We will continue to keep track of Psalms' progress through the recruiting process and we will update news on him as it happens.
