For the second time in the past month, the Bears have lost a player from the 2014 recruiting class. The latest casualty? Four-star defensive back Jaleel Wadood.
I have just decommitted from California Berkeley, I wanna thank coach dykes and the rest of there coaching staff for the opportunity.— JALEEL WADOOD (@OGLeel_2) November 19, 2013
It's tough to have any resentment or ill feelings. He was gracious in his decommitment and did it well ahead of signing day. I don't blame him for not wanting to join a 1-10 team with one of the worst defenses in the conference.
He has offers from every other Pac-12 school except Stanford, so we will (for better or for worse) probably see him again in the near future. Best of luck, Jaleel!
