Wariboko working to trim list

[db]Josh Wariboko's summer visit schedule is nearing its end. As things stand now, there are just two trips left on his agenda. More may be added down the road, but, at least for now, things seem relatively simple. The Rivals 100 offensive guard will hit Oklahoma State on Saturday. Before that, though, it's off to Texas A&M, which Wariboko has visited before.
"I should be able to get down to A&M on Wednesday," Wariboko said. "With them, I like that they have offensive linemen going to the NFL. It's a really good school. As it stands right now, I think they have the best facilities in the nation."
Wariboko was recently forced to cancel a scheduled trip to Ohio State and has no immediate plans to reschedule the unofficial visit. It may or may not happen in the fall. At this juncture he's not too worried about it. Instead, the Oklahoma City Casady School standout has concerned himself with the process of trimming his list.
It stands to reason that USC, UCLA and Texas A&M will all make the cut when Wariboko announces his final five. Still nothing is set just yet, and Wariboko isn't letting any official word leak. Some of the old favorites remain, but other programs are making late pushes for inclusion in his final group of suitors.
"Actually, California Berkley has been in the mix these past few weeks a lot," Wariboko said. "The academics there and the networking of the alumni are big. They have been talking to me and my parents almost every day.
"I'm still in the process of cutting it down to five, but I'm still in the process right now."
Finalist or not, UCLA has already been awarded an official visit. Wariboko visit on Nov. 22 for the Bruins' home game against USC. And while that suggests that the Bruins have already advanced to the final stage of Wariboko's recruitment, the four-star prospect cautions against making assumptions.
"Just because I take an official doesn't necessarily mean any school is a finalist. I might take an unofficial to one of my final schools or something. I just have to talk to my parents.
According to Wariboko, the list of schools currently "standing out" in his recruitment consists of Florida, Florida State, Miami, USC, UCLA, Texas, Texas A&M, Clemson, Louisville, Oklahoma and Oklahoma State.
