Three-star commit still looking

Fernando Villanueva had been set for Washington State but recently switched to San Jose State because the San Jose (Calif.) Independence offensive tackle said he felt the Spartans were more committed to him.
The 6-foot-6, 280-pound three-star prospect said he's still open to hearing from other programs - mainly Utah and Fresno State - but for the time being he's sticking with San Jose State.
"The reason why I switched was because I didn't feel (Washington State) was showing enough love and not enough recognition," Villanueva said.
"I just wanted to make sure I could go somewhere and they weren't going to pull my scholarship at the last minute. February is coming up and I just wanted to be sure.
"I committed (to San Jose State) because they promised me they were going to a bowl game, they promised me so many things and they promised me a lot of playing time my freshman year. I just have to work hard and be ready for the college boys out there."
Recruiting is probably not done for Villanueva since the three-star plans to visit Utah the weekend of Jan. 13 and is open to hearing from Fresno State's new coaching staff as well.
"Right now San Jose State is where I'm committed but I'm still on the look, still trying to see what fits best for me," Villanueva said.
"I'd be open to looking at Fresno State, too. They were on me with their old coaching staff and hopefully they'll be with their new coaching staff. I'm not with trying to get offers and all that hype."
Villanueva, who looked good at the Cal State Game last week, committed to Washington State soon after his visit in September.
