Santa Ana's Jeremiah Criddell is seeing his recruitment heat up. The Mater Dei star is up to 21 total offers.

Criddell is a four-star cornerback for the California powerhouse. 247Sports‘ composite rankings have him at No. 12 overall in the state.

He is the No. 68 overall player in the country. 247 ranks him No. 6 among cornerbacks.

Earlier this month, Criddell named a loose top five. He wouldn't commit to an official list, but he said that Washington, Oklahoma, Oregon, TCU and Baylor stood out, and UCLA and USC were also getting involved.

Jeremiah Criddell now has a list of unofficial visits he wants to take, and its a bit different.

Oklahoma, TCU, and Washington are all there, and as a local product, he can always head to the two Los Angeles powers. However, Baylor and Oregon aren't mentioned, while Notre Dame is. From 247:

“Those are all unofficial visits and I’m going to wait until the fall to set up my official visits. i was going to commit early but I decided to hold off and take my visits in the fall now. I for sure want to officially visit Oklahoma, Washington and Notre Dame and probably TCU as well. I’ll unofficially visit USC and UCLA, they’re both in the mix too and then I’ll jus try and find the school that I feel the best connection with.”

This doesn't mean anything about the Bears or Sooners falling out of contention, of course. Players have to pay their own way for unofficial visits, so taking a bunch to other parts of the country can be prohibitively costly.

Still, the different inclusions are interesting. It shows that the situation with Criddell is still very fluid.

As of now, three Pac-12 schools are splitting the vote in 247's crystal ball. 10 recruiting experts have logged predictions so far.

Half of them have him ending up with the Washington Huskies, while four predictions have gone with Oregon. The remaining one has UCLA slotted in.
