Kenny Lawler, the three-star wide receiver from Upland (Calif.) flew up to Seattle over the weekend, for the chance to watch the last game in Husky Stadium, in front of a sold-out crowd.
Although Oregon ended up beating Washington, the Huskies still managed to make a strong impression on Lawler.
“I really liked Washington. My visit went really well. I liked how loud the fans were. I liked everything about their program, including the coaches and all the players,” said Lawler.
While in Seattle, Lawler had a chance to talk at length with Washington’s coaching staff, including, cornerback coach, Demetrice Martin, receivers coach, Jimmie Dougherty, defensive line coach, Johnny Nansen and head coach Steve Sarkisian.
How did Washington’s football program stack up to Arizona State’s football program?
“Pretty good. They only negative comment I have about Washington was the cold weather. But I will be able to answer that question better after I take my official to Arizona State in a couple weeks,” said Lawler.
Although Lawler verbally committed to Arizona State at the beginning of the season, he has said he would like to take all of his official trips before making a final decision.
“I will be taking my other officials to Arizona State, Nebraska, California and Oregon State,” said Lawler. ““For my next official I will be going to Arizona State on November 19th, after that I will be taking an official to Nebraska on November 26th, however that is Thanksgiving weekend, so I am not 100% if I will be taking my trip that weekend. And for my remaining visits to California and Oregon State, I am going to wait and go see those schools after the season.”
