Jaleel Wadood committed to Arizona State in the middle of last month but that doesn't mean the recruiting process is finished for the 2014 cornerback from Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco.
"It's slowed down a little bit but after my commitment I picked up offers from Utah, Boise State and Fresno State," Wadood said.
More offers could be on the way for Wadood, who already had offers from Colorado and Oregon State earlier in his recruitment.
Most of the Pac-12 is recruiting the 5-foot-11, 165-pound four-star cornerback but he said he thought Arizona State was the right fit and so he made his decision early on.
Still, Wadood will keep looking at other programs and since he's more than a year away from signing day for the 2014 class it's expected schools won't stop coming after him.
"I'm committed and I want to be a Sun Devil but I'm not going to limit my options," Wadood said. "I want to keep looking at other schools to see what's out there.
"I feel like ASU was the right fit at the time. It was the right move for me to make at this point so I just went along with it. I wanted to be a Sun Devil. It was heavy on my mind and I just went ahead and made the commitment."
He has family at Arizona State as well.
His cousin, Rashad, is a defensive back for the Sun Devils and that could have played a major factor in Wadood's decision-making process.
The 2014 prospect said he's so close with his cousin that he calls him his brother and that helped make Arizona State a favorite early on.
"He's my cousin but we've been living together all our lives so I just call him my brother," Wadood said.
