Canada holds off pledge

Squally Canada thought about making an early commitment.
But after talking with those close to him, the Milpitas, Calif., running back has decided to back off a decision and will probably wait things out before making any pledge.
That is good news for many programs that want to get involved in the coming months but probably bad news for Boise State, the team that still leads in his recruitment and the place he was probably going to commit to if an early decision was made.
"They're still out in front but I talked to my peers and my mom and some of the coaches on my coaching staff and I wanted to go out there and make any early commitment but I'm going to keep my options open," Canada said.
"I don't want to rush anything and I want to see what other opportunities come. I sat down and thought about it and this is going to be a big part of my life. I just want to make sure I make the right decision and I don't want to rush in to anything."
The 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect is slowly picking up offers, too. So far, Canada has been offered by Boise State, Colorado, Colorado State, Houston and Nevada.
A few other programs have recently reached out - including a few other big names from the Pac-12 - and since Canada now plans to wait to make his commitment, many others could get in the mix soon.
Boise State is still the frontrunner but the Milpitas standout plans to hold off, see what happens and then make his choice much later in the recruiting process.
"Oregon messaged me on Facebook," Canada said.
"Utah State called me up and they're looking at my transcripts so I'm still in the process of an offer. Washington State came by to watch me practice and they talked to me a little bit, too."
