Four-star decides against visits

Jeremy Castro had been working on scheduling a visit to Washington this weekend, even though he recently de-committed from the Huskies and pledged to Oregon, but things didn't work out for the Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta four-star defensive end.
There was chatter that Castro would reschedule his trip to Washington for some point later in the season - possibly for its rivalry game against Washington State - but now the 6-foot-1, 240-pound prospect said he has decided not to take a trip to Washington after all.
"As of right now I don't think I'm going to be able to take a trip to Washington," Castro said. "I'm happy just staying with Oregon right now.
"I just took my official visit to Oregon and loved everything about it. It just felt like home right there. It's really nice up there. It's perfect. Washington probably dropped me but things happen."
Castro, who originally committed to Washington in the summer, had always said he would look at other options and after he visited Oregon late last month he apparently found everything he wanted and decided to switch his commitment.
Still, Castro wanted to take an official visit to Washington - possibly to see if he missed out on anything - but since the scheduling didn't work out he's decided not to mess around with a trip later in the season.
Castro is content with the Ducks and doesn't plan to see any other college campuses.
"I'm just set with Oregon," Castro said. "My heart is set with them and I don't think I'm going to take any other visits."
Arizona, Arizona State, Colorado, Iowa State, Ole Miss, Oklahoma and UCLA were some other programs involved with Castro, who's rated No. 21 at weak-side defensive end in the 2012 class and No. 36 in the California state rankings.
