Wadood sticking by word

After a strong performance at camp last week, UCLA offered Jaleel Wadood and USC also recently got in the mix as well but that does not mean the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco cornerback is changing his mind.
Wadood committed to Arizona State in mid-January and although the four-star cornerback said he's going to continue looking at all options, the Sun Devils are still in good position and he said he's not about to make any sudden changes.
"I'm not that type of person," Wadood said.
"That's not how my father raised me to just kind of switch up on a team after you get something else. I am evaluating SC and everybody else but that wouldn't be right to ASU and the coaching staff for how much love they've shown me. It's still ASU but I am evaluating other teams."
Wadood's cousin, Rashad, plays for the Sun Devils and ever since the four-star visited Tempe he's fallen in love with the program and the coaching staff.
The offer from USC is definitely something Wadood will consider and UCLA has just gotten in the game as well so there is heavy competition for his services.
Boise State, Cal, Colorado, Fresno State, Nebraska, Oregon, Oregon State, San Jose State, Utah, Vanderbilt and Washington State have all offered as well and the 5-foot-11, 165-pound recruit said he's going to take a serious look at all programs.
"I'm really serious about everybody who's offered me a scholarship," Wadood said. "They've taken the time to look at me and offer me a scholarship. I'm taking my time, giving everybody a good look. It's still ASU though but I'm looking at everybody right now."
No other unofficial visits are planned, Wadood doesn't plan to camp at USC this week but he does want to take all five official visits. None are planned yet, though, since he doesn't want to lock in dates if more offers are on the way.
The Friday night camp stop at UCLA definitely left an impression and later in the weekend the Bruins offered so it's something else for the ASU pledge to keep an eye on.
"It's a cool environment," Wadood said. "UCLA is a great college. I came out here to get work. I came to get better.
"They're still recruiting me hard. They wanted me to come out to the camp. This was for me to come out, get some extra work and compete."
