Damariay Drew gave a soft verbal commitment to Cal earlier this month but only weeks later the Livermore, Calif., athlete has reopened his recruitment and will look at other programs.
The 5-foot-11, 195-pound recruit said the Golden Bears are still his favorite but he is no longer committed to them as he considers other teams weeks before National Signing Day.
"They're the favorite but I'm not committed," Drew said.

This past weekend, Drew visited Washington and said he has an offer from the Huskies. Washington is where two former Cal assistant coaches - defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi and wide receiver coach Eric Kiesau - took jobs earlier this week.
Oregon is also one of the top schools for Drew, who is expected to visit with the Ducks this weekend. The three-star prospect also lists an offer from Nevada but it's not expected to be a serious contender in his recruitment.
Cal remains on top but Drew is definitely interested in seeing what other teams can offer him.
"I just thought it through and wanted to see everything and maybe not miss out on a better fit," Drew said.
Drew rushed for 1,291 yards and 17 touchdowns on 157 carries in his senior season. He also recorded a team-high 79 tackles, registered three sacks and had one interception. The three-star averaged almost 28 yards per kick return.
Schools are recruiting Drew as an athlete since he can play both offense and defense and also contribute on special teams.
