Jaleel Wadood remains happily committed to Arizona State but a recent offer from Cal has him at least interested in taking a look at the Golden Bears.
Sunday at the 4th Quarters Sports Elite 7on7 Tournament at Los Angeles Salesian, Wadood said he was completely surprised by the Cal offer but that he wants to learn more about the program and there is some intrigue there.
"I was really surprised," Wadood said. "I wasn't talking to Cal really because they just got the new coaches but they called, it was Friday, and they offered me.

"It's definitely a big one as far as football-wise and school-wise. I'm definitely going to consider Cal."
The 5-foot-11, 165-pound four-star prospect said his commitment to Arizona State is not wavering and he committed to the Sun Devils for many reasons.
A new offer is interesting but Arizona State is still way out in front early on.
"I like them a lot and that's where I want to be right now," Wadood said. "I think ASU is a good program and it's going to lead me further where I'm trying to get as far as football and being a better player. I like the coaching staff and the environment.
"I felt like I was at home with ASU. They make you work hard. I went to the camp and I got coached by a lot of good coaches at ASU so that really caught my eye. They really welcomed me."
Washington State has also offered Wadood, who already had offers from Boise State, Colorado, Fresno State, Oregon State and Utah.
Wadood has been committed to Arizona State since the middle of January. He excels mainly at cornerback but can also contribute on offense and special teams. The four-star saw limited action this past weekend at the 4th Quarter Sports event.
