Four-star commit considers trips

Jeremy Castro is still committed to Washington but the four-star weak-side defensive end from Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta is looking to take other visits and probably won't make any final decisions until after his busy senior season.
Castro, a 6-foot-1, 240-pound prospect, said Clemson, Utah, Cincinnati and Nevada are the four new programs showing the most interest in him although none have offered yet.
While he's still solid to the Huskies, Castro is open to learning about new teams and seeing what they have to offer.
"There aren't a lot of new offers but basically a lot more schools are considering me now," Castro said.
"I'm going to wait it out now. I'm going to wait until the end of the season to move forward."
The four-star recruit said he's planning to officially visit Washington when it plays Oregon in early November and that he's also planning some trips to Oregon and Arizona State.
Some trips outside of the Pac-12 are also being strongly considered and he said a visit to the ACC - and maybe some other big-time conferences - might be neat.
"My officials that I have right now are all Pac-12," Castro said. "Outside of the Pac-12 are schools like Oklahoma and LSU that are interested in me but it would be pretty cool to take a visit to Clemson."
There have been rumors in recent weeks that UCLA is quickly moving up Castro's list and he said that chatter is mainly true but he'd also like to see the Bruins be more successful on the field before he gets too excited about the local program.
"It's true I like UCLA but I just want them to start winning games," Castro said. "If they do well then I'll still consider them more."
For now, Castro is playing out his senior season and then will figure out the best spot for himself later. Rivals.com rates him No. 21 at weak-side defensive end in the 2012 class and No. 36 in the California state rankings.
