Oregon commit Jeremy Castro said he loved his recent official visit to Washington but that he plans to stick with his pledge to the Ducks.
The four-star defensive end from Murrieta (Calif.) Vista Murrieta had once been committed to Washington but after visiting Oregon switched his pledge and doesn't want to make any other changes.
"I'm still a Duck," Castro said. "I'm still going to take all my trips though.

"I really like the Oregon coaches and just how they get along with their players and I really like the atmosphere at Oregon. It's just a great place to be. It's loud in the stadium. You could barely hear yourself talk. It's amazing."
Washington definitely did a lot to impress Castro, a 6-foot-1, 240-pound prospect who's rated No. 18 at weak-side defensive end in the 2012 class by Rivals.com.
Huskies' assistant coach Demetrice Martin was at Vista Murrieta's victory against Upland last weekend and Castro could remain a target until National Signing Day but the four-star said he's not planning to flip back.
Castro was definitely impressed with his trip though.
"I loved it," he said.
"When I went up there I got picked up and we ate and they showed me a great time. I loved how they treated me. They treated me with respect and like I never de-committed. They treated me like a Husky, like always, like I always was committed.
"It was better than I thought. They have a great fan base and a lot of people were at the game."
The four-star prospect is expected to stick with his Oregon pledge but said he would like to visit Oklahoma and LSU before signing day. No other trips have been scheduled at this point.
