Cal commit Jaleel Wadood said he's taking an official visit to Oregon State this weekend for its matchup against Colorado and even though it's difficult to tell how interested he is in the Beavers, he'll be in Corvallis and they'll have their shot at flipping the four-star recruit.
"I'm taking an official visit to Oregon State this weekend," Wadood said. "They were the first school to offer me and I pretty much just want to get up there and take the trip. I just want to see how it is up there."

The Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco four-star cornerback who has also shined at wide receiver this season will take another Pac-12 trip to Utah for the weekend of Oct. 12.
Wadood, who has been committed to Cal since this summer after a short stint as an Arizona State commit, was supposed to take an unofficial visit to UCLA last weekend for its blowout win over New Mexico State but didn't make it.
The four-star recruit said his recruitment hasn't changed much in recent weeks but that UCLA, USC and Washington continue to stay involved.
Especially the local programs - USC and UCLA - have been in a lot of contact with Wadood, who has been dominant on both sides of the field this season for St. John Bosco, one of the top programs in the country.
"I didn't get a chance to make it down (to UCLA)," Wadood said.
"It's been the same pretty much. It hasn't really changed since the season started. It's the same schools still after me."
