Kameron Jackson has decided to de-commit from Washington but said that he will keep the Huskies on his list and will add Cal, where he visited in December.
The three-star cornerback from Long Beach (Calif.) Poly had been committed to Washington since early April and had stayed firm in his pledge but in recent weeks the Golden Bears have made in-roads in his recruitment and he decided to open things up to look at both programs.
Jackson, an athletic and talented 5-foot-9, 158-pound prospect, took an official visit to Colorado this past weekend but said he's not strongly considering the Buffaloes at this point.
What makes Jackson's de-commitment even a little trickier is that Poly teammate Corey Waller, a three-star linebacker, has been committed to the Huskies since mid-November. It was believed Jackson's pledge was made even stronger when Waller picked Washington but that doesn't seem like the case now.
Boise State, Cincinnati, Utah, Washington State and others have offered Jackson, rated as the No. 40 cornerback nationally by Rivals.com and No. 52 in the California state rankings but he said it's down to only Washington and Cal.
When Jackson first committed to the Huskies in April, he said he felt it was just the right time to end his recruitment.
"I talked to my coaches and my parents and we knew it was the right time," Jackson said. "It's very big for me. I'm excited about it.
"I sat down and thought about it for a while and just decided to do it. The coaching staff is really cool, they're all down to earth and they've always been really cool with me."
In other Washington recruiting news, four-star safety James Sample, who committed to the Huskies at the U.S. Army All-American Bowl, has decided not to visit Oregon State this weekend. Sample said he's done with visits and will stick with his Washington pledge.
