Stephan Nembot is still committed to Washington State and still talks to the Cougars' coaching staff regularly but said he is considering other options and could take some visits before National Signing Day.
"I'm still trying to figure out what I need to do," Nembot said. "I am committed to Washington State but I'm always looking for what is best for me. It's like that. I'm just looking for what's best for me."
The 6-foot-7, 250-pound strong-side defensive end emerged on the national scene especially last summer when he performed well at a bunch of camps.
Arizona State, Stanford, UCLA and Washington also offered but Nembot made a somewhat surprising commitment to Washington State after his visit this fall for the Oregon matchup.
Many of those Pac-10 programs are still pursuing Nembot, a three-star recruit from Van Nuys (Calif.) Montclair Prep, so he wants to keep all his options open. He's still committed but is looking at other places as well.
"Some schools are waiting to recruit me and they're saying I need to de-commit first but I haven't done it yet," Nembot said.
"I also have to find out what's best for me. Some people are asking me about Washington State, that they're last in the Pac-10, but I'm still looking. I'm still talking to Washington and other schools."
Washington, Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA have been in contact according to Nembot, rated as the No. 52 strong-side defensive end nationally and No. 72 in the California state rankings by Rivals.com.
Washington State is still very much involved, Nembot said, and he talks to the coaching staff regularly but does plan to schedule a few visits just to consider other schools.
"I think I will take other visits even though I am committed but I don't know yet when I'll take those visits," Nembot said. "I'll have to see and wait."
