Big season continues for Wadood

Jaleelwadwood 9 5 200
Jaleel Wadood is making a name for himself this season and that's especially impressive since he's a 2014 prospect.
The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco recruit already had offers from Arizona State and Oregon State and recently added another from Colorado. He said not many other programs have been in contact.
The junior is utilized on offense, defense and special teams for arguably one of the best teams in California and so he's excited about where his recruitment is headed next.
Figuring that out might have to wait though since Wadood said he doesn't plan to take any more unofficial visits this season.
"No more visits until after the season," Wadood said. "I want to focus on the team."
St. John Bosco is undefeated through six games on the field although its record does not reflect that because it had to forfeit four games because of an ineligible player.
Still, Wadood is playing well in all three phases - mainly running back, cornerback and on special teams - and so he's happy with how the season is going.
"Everything is going well," Wadood said. "We're coming off another win against Orange Lutheran.
"We're playing together as a team, coming together as a team and it's definitely going well. There's nothing really new in recruiting though."
What's most impressive is that not only has St. John Bosco not lost any games this season on the field but it has beaten some quality opponents.
So far, the Braves have taken down Compton (Calif.) Dominguez, Lakewood, Calif., Santa Fe Springs (Calif.) Santa Fe, Los Angeles Loyola, Sandy (Utah) Jordan and Orange Lutheran.
Wadood is pleased with his team's success and hopes it turns into more recruiting attention moving forward.
"I'll worry about that after the season," he said.
