Mathis knows of two visits

Joemathis 200
Joe Mathis is taking his time setting up official visits for this fall but the Upland, Calif., four-star defensive end is at least sure of two trips.
The 6-foot-4, 254-pound recruit said he definitely plans to visit Washington and Texas A&M and then he will figure out his other three later on.
Mathis, a former Washington commit, has a long-standing relationship with the Huskies' coaching staff and has raved about possibly playing for assistant coach Tosh Lupoi.
The four-star has also talked extensively with the new Texas A&M staff and is intrigued to visit College Station to see what they can offer.
"I've had a long relationship with Washington," Mathis said. "I feel comfortable around them. With Texas A&M I want to go see what all these coaches are talking about. I want to absorb all this stuff."
The Upland standout has already taken unofficial visits to numerous places including Nebraska and Michigan, two schools considered among his top schools.
Mathis said recently at The Opening that he no longer has a top three - it was Michigan, Nebraska and Washington - but that he's open to his top 10.
That list is Alabama, Washington, USC, UCLA, Michigan, Nebraska, Texas A&M, Arizona State, Tennessee and Hawaii.
Over the last few months, Mathis has dropped a bunch of weight which means he could still play defensive end or a hybrid linebacker/defensive end role in some systems.
He does not plan to rush a decision and expects to take all his visits before making another commitment.
"I'm looking at official visits," Mathis said. "I'm still in the process of figuring those out."
