California Football Recruiting: Jaleel Wadood Picks Golden Bears

After decommitting from the Arizona State Sun Devils on June 25th, 2014 safety Jaleel Wadood made the call and committed to the California Golden Bears on Tuesday. Wadood’s commitment is a huge one for the California Golden Bears and not just because he switched to them from ASU. He is the 9th overall prospect and the 2nd nationally ranked prospect from the Class of 2014 to choose the Golden Bears.

Since his decommitment, Cal was fully expected to land Wadood’s signature as 10 of the 12 recruiting experts on 247Sports’ Crystal Ball picked the Golden Bears to land him.

The Lakewood, California native choose Cal over the Boise State Broncos, Colorado Buffaloes, Nebraska Cornhuskers, Oregon Ducks, Oregon State Beavers, San Diego State Aztecs, San Jose State Spartans, UCLA Bruins, USC Trojans, Vanderbilt Commodores, and Washington Huskies.

Jaleel Wadood is a playmaker who contains ball skills, instincts, and really good closing speed.

He is a decent tackler, but his weakest attributes are his size and frame. At 5’11″, 170 pounds, Wadood is small for a safety, but he can overcome his size with his playmaking ability.

The four-star recruit is currently ranked 25th in the state of California, 16th among safeties, and 234th among 2014 high school recruits by 247Sports.
