The Opening 2013: Jaleel Wadood, Naijel Hale, D.J. Calhoun, Erik Brown, Arrion Springs announcements

Jaleel Wadood - Student Sports

Several Pac-12 recruits are committing at the Opening.

Arrion Springs, San Antonio (Tex.) Roosevelt cornerback (247 Composite Rankings: 97th in Top247, 10th best cornerback, 14th best Texas recruit)

Springs has a final two of Oregon and Texas, but expect a Duck hat to go on Springs's head when all is said and done. Springs has long been a Duck fan.

Prediction: Oregon

Erik Brown, Fontana (Ca.) Summit wide receiver (247 Composite Rankings: 133rd in Top247, 17th best wide receiver, 12th best California recruit)

Brown has a reported final five of Boise State, Cal, Oregon State, UCLA and Washington.

Brown's last trip was to Washington and their summer camp; he recently talked Huskies and Bruins. Washington has gotten the most attention on the eve of Brown's announcement, so expect a commitment to the Dawgs.

Prediction: Washington

Derik "D.J." Calhoun, El Cerrito (Ca.) linebacker (247 Composite Rankings: 146th in Top247, 10th best outside linebacker, 14th best California recruit)

Calhoun is in a three team race between Cal, USC and UCLA (Arizona State and Miami make the final cut as well). Calhoun is one of the three talented El Cerrito prospects from this year's class, including wide receiver Jalen Harvey (Cal commit) and cornerback Adarius Pickett (uncommitted).

Prediction: USC

Jaleel Wadood, Bellflower (Ca.) St. John Bosco safety (247 Composite Rankings: 236th in Top247, 19th best safety, 26th best California recruit)

Wadood has a final four of ASU, Cal, UCLA and USC.

Wadood decommitted from Arizona State earlier this week and seems set to change course. Wadood stated he committed too early and is ready to make a more informed decision after receiving numerous other attractive offers.

Prediction: Cal

Naijiel Hale, Bellflower (Ca.) St. John Bosco safety (247 Composite Rankings: 282nd in Top247, 23rd best cornerback, 31st best California recruit)

Wadood's Bosco teammate lists a final five of Arizona State, Arizona, Cal, Utah and Washington State.

It seems Arizona and Cal are the two favorites, with the Wildcats the team that has been out in front for quite some time. Hale is the son of rapper Nate Dogg; here's a solid profile of Hale from 247Sports.

Prediction: Arizona
