Jordan Rigsbee isn't prepared to make a commitment yet but he has pretty much eliminated Oregon and is now focused on Cal and Boise State as the Chico (Calif.) Pleasant Valley offensive lineman continues to research both options.
The Golden Bears are considered a frontrunner for Rigsbee because his brother, Tyler, plays at Cal and he's been around the program quite often but after a recent visit to Boise State the Broncos cannot be dismissed just yet.
"Right now the two schools I'm looking at are Boise State and Cal," Rigsbee said. "I just took a visit to Boise. Both programs have similar coaching staffs with (Jeff) Tedford and (Chris) Petersen both being cool guys.

"Coach (Chris) Strausser and coach (Steve) Marshall are also really cool so I'm just going to take it in and think about it and go from there."
Arguably the top offensive linemen at the Palo Alto NIKE Camp last weekend, Rigsbee, who plays with a distinctive mean streak, said he was initially hesitant about the Boise State trip, not sure if he'd like it as much and concerned about the conference the Broncos play in.
Afterward, not only did Boise State make a big impression on him but the 6-foot-4, 275-pound prospect plans to visit again for summer camp.
"Going up there I wasn't so sure but now it's making my decision a lot harder," Rigsbee said. "It's pretty evened out right now so I like it.
"They sold (their preseason ranking) to me a lot and there was also some talk about them maybe moving to the Mountain West soon. They're saying they're trying to get in a different conference now and in the next few years that might happen."
The next step for Rigsbee, who also has offers from Oregon, Arizona, Duke, Oregon State, Washington and Washington State, said he plans to discuss his recruitment with his parents and coaches, take trips to Cal and Boise State for camps this summer and then close in on a decision.
"My thought process right now is taking all the offers I have and I've looked at all the schools I wanted to look at," Rigsbee said. "My parents and I talk about it every now and then, we just mull things over and see what I think and go from there.
"I'm going to go to both camps so that way I can get coached by both of the o-line coaches and go from there."
