Four-star defensive end Ifeadi Odenigbo (Centerville, Ohio/Centerville) recently took unofficial visits to a pair of schools out West, and both Pac-12 schools have made his final five.

Odenigbo, who's No. 50 in the ESPNU 150 and the No. 4 DE in the country, has made no secret about how big academics will be in his decision. He also said he has no problem leaving home to play his college ball a week ago camped with both Cal and Stanford.

"I loved both schools and both are in my final five," Odenigbo said. "I camped with Cal first and loved it there. I like the football team a lot and I have a really good relationship with their defensive line coach, Tosh Lupoi. I was blown away by the facilities that they're building there as well and when it's all done, I think they could be the best in the country. I have a lot of family in the Bay Area too so that's another huge plus for Cal.
