Weekend Rewind: Washington
By Mason Kelley
SEATTLE -- With one verbal commitment and eight official visitors, it was a busy weekend for Washington.
While cornerback Daquawn Brown (Los Angeles/Dorsey) was getting a tour of the Space Needle and offensive tackle Na’Ty Rodgers (Pomfret, Md./McDonough) was tweeting pictures of the view from his hotel room, linebacker Azeem Victor (Pomona, Calif./Pomona) was at home in California deciding it was the right time to announce he would play college football for the Huskies. Now that Victor has joined the program's 2013 class, Washington has 20 current commitments.
Brown and Rodgers were joined on their visits by USC commits offensive tackle Nico Falah (Bellflower, Calif./St. John Bosco) and cornerback Jalen Ramsey (Brentwood, Tenn./Brentwood Academy).
“Seattle did change something for me. If I don’t go to USC, I’m going to Washington for sure,” Falah said. “I like Washington a lot. I’m still committed to USC, but if anything happens, I’m going to Washington. That’s my second choice right now.”
Receiver Damore’ea Stringfellow (Moreno Valley, Calif./Rancho Verde) was the only Washington commit who visited during the weekend. The group also included defensive end Joe Mathis (Upland, Calif./Upland), receiver John Ross (Long Beach, Calif./Jordan) and safety Trevor Walker (Arlington, Texas/Timberview).
