Los Angeles (Calif.) Verbum Dei defensive end Justin Edison seemed to have solidified his commitment to Oregon State this past weekend following an official visit to Corvallis. After a home visit from another Pac 10 school earlier tonight, things look up in the air again.
Edison, 6-4, 220 pounds emerged this past season as one of the stateâ€™s elite pass rushers. He had a huge year racking up 83 tackles and 14 sacks in helping the Eagles win a CIF championship.
Edison committed to Oregon State back in December without even visiting the campus. He took a visit to Cal two weeks ago and then checked out the Beavers this past weekend.
Cal DL coach Ken Delgado was in for a home visit tonight and now Edison seems as confused as ever.
â€œEverything is pretty much up in the air right now,â€ Edison said. â€œIf Signing Day was tomorrow, I really donâ€™t know what I would do. Both schools have their advantages and I just need to sit down with my dad and figure out what the best thing for me to do is.
â€œI like Oregon State a lot because the coaching staff and just how comfortable I am with everyone there. With Cal, I like their education and they have a great football program.
â€œOne big difference between the two schools is Cal wants me to grey-shirt and Oregon State said I could come in this fall. Thatâ€™s one of the things Coach Delgado talked to me about tonight.
â€œHe said they like my upside a lot but think I could use the extra year to get bigger and stronger since Iâ€™m still growing in to my frame. I know there are some definite advantages to grey-shirting but I would actually prefer to come in this fall with the rest of the class.
â€œOn top of that, Iâ€™m still talking with UCLA. I just spoke with Coach Walker this morning and heâ€™s supposed to call me later tonight to see about me taking a visit this weekend.
â€œIf they offer me, Iâ€™ll probably take the visit. Theyâ€™re pretty full on scholarships right now so Iâ€™m not sure what is going to happen there but coach Walker said they like me a lot and just want to see more film. I should have a better idea later in the week what my plans are and honestly, I donâ€™t know when Iâ€™ll have a final decision. Just when I know, I know but Iâ€™m not going to rush anything.â€
