This article was updated twice on Feb. 1 with commitments by Rodrick Pleasant and JeyQuan Smith.

Gardena Serra HS senior Rodrick Pleasant, the California record-holder in the 100-meter dash, and Southern Section and CIF-State sprint champion for both 100m and 200m, is also the No. 7-ranked football recruit out of CA and the No. 4-ranked cornerback recruit in the U.S.
On Wednesday, Pleasant pulled out a green and white cap and made official his commitment to the University of Oregon.
Pleasant was among the few CA combo football/track and field standouts who did not publicly committed to a college during the early signing window in December.
Pleasant had considered Boston College, Cal, Oregon, UCLA and USC before ultimately choosing the Ducks.
Cajon (SS) slot/Ath JeyQuan Smith, the other top CA combo star who did not commit in December, is headed to South Florida. He is a native of the Sunshine State and selected the Bulls over Utah and Washington.
The updated grid below lists more than 30 California football recruits who also have a track and field profile with results in the MileSplit database. These athletes range from a multiple-State Meet champion, like Pleasant, to athletes with just one or two track marks on their resume.
Rankings are from 247Sports.com. That list was used as the research foundation for the this project.
Did we miss a football recruit with track and field on his resume? Let us know.
