California S picks Pac 10

One visit was enough for three-star safety prospect Deone Bucannon.
The 6-foot-2, 185-pounder took an official visit to Washington State over the weekend, and according to his coach, it was enough for him to make an oral commitment to the Cougars.
"He liked what he saw and can see himself there and committed," Fairfield coach LeVon Haynes said. "He texted me Saturday in the middle of our scrimmage to tell me that he was thinking of committing. I told him if it feels right, 'Go for it.'
"Coach Ball is a great guy and coached my cousin, Roman Harper, at Alabama. Coach Ball said that Deone reminded him of Roman we he first came to Alabama I told him I guess I have to root for the Cougars now seeing how I've been a Husky fan."
Haynes said the move was a good one for a number of different reasons.
"We are excited that he wants to put it behind him and focus on the season and helping his team win football games," Haynes said. "This was a great decision for Deone."
Bucannon also had scholarship offers from Army, Cal-Poly, Nevada, San Diego State and was getting interest from Arizona State, Fresno State, Oregon, Utah and Washington.
He ranks as the nation's No. 44 safety prospect and the No. 69 player in California.
