Pickett not rushing trips

Before Adarius Pickett pencils in any unofficial visits this summer, the four-star cornerback from El Cerrito, Calif., wants to finish out his baseball season and get through the Rivals100 Five-Star Challenge in Chicago.
Many programs are pushing Pickett to take a trip to their campus in the coming months especially two Pac-12 teams that have been involved in his recruitment for a while.
"We're going to see what happens," Pickett said. "After the baseball season is completed and then after the Rivals camp, we'll see about visits. Washington wants me to come up there really badly and Cal wants me to swing by and talk to them."
Those are just two of the teams coming hard after Pickett, a 6-foot, 185-pound recruit who won the defensive MVP at the RCS Los Angeles.
Arizona State and Colorado recently stopped by El Cerrito, also the home of four-star linebacker Derik Calhoun and Cal wide receiver commit Jalen Harvey among other prospects.
Before Pickett announces any favorites, though, he wants to hit the road a little this summer to see which programs fit best for him. And until baseball is over and he returns home from Chicago after the Five-Star Challenge, the four-star doesn't want to name any frontrunners.
"As of right now, I'm just taking everything in and I haven't narrowed anything down yet," Pickett said. "Everybody is still on an even playing field."
More offers came in this week although they were minor ones including some Ivy League offers.
In total, Pickett has Arizona State, Cal, Colorado State, Dartmouth, Nebraska, Nevada, Northwestern, Purdue, San Diego State, Stanford, UCLA, USC, Utah, Utah State, UTEP, Virginia, Washington, Washington State and Yale on his offer list.
