Aldine (Texas) Eisenhower defensive tackle Jay Guy verbally committed to Cal early this spring, but that hasn't stopped college recruiters from backing off the Houston-area prospect.
Guy currently holds 29 offers and will be taking some official visits come the fall.
"I'm still very committed to Cal but my parents feel that I owe it to myself to check out some other schools," he said. "I went to Cal in June and really liked the campus. I talked with the academic people and just started getting a feel for it."
According to Guy, he may be visiting the likes of Ole Miss, Nebraska and Texas Tech in months to come, but he says he's not taking any more unofficial visits this summer.
"I'm done with travelling for now," he said. "I'm just working out and watching video of last year. I'm really working on my conditioning so I will be able to stay on the field all game. I'm the leader out there and I need to be able to play four quarters and into overtime."
Eisenhower lost the likes of Craig Loston, Jaz Reynolds, Greg Timmons and Kenny Guiton from last year's team, but Guy feels that the Eagles won't lose a step.
"When you have tons of talent who are Division I guys, they have reached their goals," he said. "We have a lot of underclassmen here who are hungry and want to produce. They are really coachable and you can see them getting better. I think we will surprise some people with our youth."
