Jordan Payton is one of the top remaining targets of the 2012 recruiting class on the West Coast, and is probably one of the few wide receivers left who can make an immediate impact. Although he remains a soft verbal to Cal, he's still very much up for grabs and is set to make his decision on TV today.

Update: Payton is announcing at 1:10.
It's widely considered to be a three-team race between Cal, UCLA and Washington.
If Payton were to decommit, the Huskies are considered the favorite, as Tosh Lupoi was Payton's main recruiter at Cal and is probably prominently involved in his recruitment to Washington. UCLA is also a possibility as the hometown team as another lynchpin in Jim Mora's surging class. And there's still the possibility that Payton sticks with Cal, the school he committed to at the Army All-American Game.
