Oregon State commit Cleveland Wallace is taking his official visit to Corvallis this weekend and the three-star cornerback said he's especially excited to see what game day is like with the Beavers.
"I'm really looking forward to the trip," Wallace said. "I want to see what an official visit is like. I also want to see what the atmosphere is like and I want to see how the campus is on game day. It should be exciting to see."
But the San Jose (Calif.) Oak Grove prospect said Arizona State, Boise State and a few other programs are pushing him to visit as well and he's strongly considering it.

While Wallace, a 6-foot-1, 170-pound prospect who committed to Oregon State in April, said he'd like to stick with his pledge to the Beavers he's also strongly considering taking other trips just to see what else is out there.
"If I'm willing to open back up they're going to try to recruit me," Wallace said of those schools and others.
"As of right now I think I might be taking a few official visits. I'm not sure and I'm still talking to my parents about that. If I were to take a couple official visits I would be going to Boise, Arizona State, Fresno State and maybe Washington. As far as that goes I don't know yet.
"Ultimately, I want to stay committed. Because I committed kind of early, I still like Oregon State, but I haven't seen what other schools have to offer me so I don't know what else is out there."
The lure of seeing what other schools have to offer is intriguing to Wallace, rated as the No. 65 cornerback in the 2012 class and No. 78 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com.
If Wallace decides to visit other programs he's almost certain it will happen during the season so he can see what other places are like on game day.
That means the three-star will have to figure out soon if he's going to take other trips or if this weekend's trip to Oregon State is enough to satisfy him.
"Basically, they're hoping I look at them," Wallace said.
"It's kind of like I'm committed but they hope they have a chance. They've said it's kind of like I have a girlfriend but I'm not married yet. Recruiting is more like a marathon and not a sprint."
