Bryce Treggs, who had been considered a lock in Cal's recruiting class, is starting to consider other options - namely USC and UCLA - after the recent coaching changes on the Golden Bears' staff.
The four-star receiver said he has lots of thinking to do.
The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco standout visited UCLA this weekend and will take a trip to USC on Thursday and Friday. A final decision should come a few days before National Signing Day but a specific date has not been finalized yet.

"About two weeks ago it seemed I was set in stone to go to Cal, I knew where I wanted to go and all that stuff, and then all these coaching changes happened," Treggs said.
"When Tosh (Lupoi) left that didn't affect me but when coach (Eric) Kiesau left, he was my position coach and that was an influence and made me consider other options."
USC has steadily recruited Treggs throughout the process and after the Trojans had some wide receivers transfer recently they became even more involved. Assistant coach Kennedy Pola offered and now the four-star is going to take a visit later this week.
"Coach Pola had always been slowly recruiting me," Treggs said. "When they had those two wide receivers transfer I guess that opened up a spot for me so they reached out with an offer.
"It's USC so it's obviously a great offer and it's an honor to be offered by that type of institution."
What makes Treggs' decision even tougher is that he had an excellent visit to UCLA this weekend.
Treggs was reunited with wide receivers coach Eric Yarber, the first person to offer Treggs when Yarber was at Arizona State, and he also hit it off with running backs coach Steve Broussard.
"It was great," Treggs said of his UCLA visit. "I got a chance to reconnect with coach Yarber, who was actually the first coach to offer me, so that was good. Me and coach Broussard are real close, too.
"Right now I'm basically still committed to Cal but I'm going to heavily consider USC and UCLA and I'll make a decision probably a couple nights before signing day as to what I'm going to do."
Rivals.com rates Treggs as the No. 12 wide receiver and No. 81 prospect in the 2012 class.
