Cedric Dozier is not giving away too many hints on where his recruitment is headed - the Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes athlete said he doesn't have a leader and doesn't have any official visits planned but that trips aren't all that important to him as he goes about making his decision.
"I'm not necessarily waiting until after the season, Dozier said. "It's just when I decide to commit."
Arizona, Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington and Vanderbilt have offered Dozier, a 5-foot-11, 175-pound four-star prospect who's going to play all over the field this season.

"I'm going to be utilized as a true athlete," said Dozier, one of the top defensive players at The Opening this summer. "I'm going to be playing quarterback, wide receiver, cornerback and safety and kick return.
"I just don't want to come off the field. That's it."
No official visits are scheduled but Dozier, rated as the eighth-best athlete, No. 152 in the 2012 class and fourth in the Washington state rankings by Rivals.com, said he is strongly considering a trip to Cal at some point. He's just not sure when it would happen during the season.
"I haven't decided any official visits other than Cal," Dozier said. "I'll probably take one there if they have a bowl game but I'm not sure."
Lakewood Lakes, which also features four-star offensive tackle Zach Banner, opens its season Friday night against Lakewood Clover Park.
That's what Dozier is focused on. Where he decides to play his college football will be determined later.
"I'm just keeping it open right now," Dozier said.
