Jack Sula, the 5-foot-10.5, 205-pound two-star running back/outside linebacker from Carson, Calif., continues to favor Washington strongly.
"I'd say there's a 65% chance I'll go there," Sula said. "They are recruiting me the hardest, along with San Diego State. But Washington is definitely at the top of my list. I've got real high interest in them.
"I like how they run their offense," he said. They see me as an athlete, or someone who could play outside linebacker or running back. I think they are really up-and-coming. I've heard very good things about (Tyrone) Willingham. He's very disciplined and straightforward. He doesn't play favorites. I also really like coach (Trent) Miles (running backs).
"The other schools I like after Washington are California, Utah, Nevada and UCLA. I haven't been offered by Cal or UCLA yet, though," he pointed out.
"I think Cal will offer," Sula said. "They just need to see more of me. But I've never really spoken with their coaches over the phone. I've got a couple of cousins who go there. I want to stay on the west coast, definitely in the Pac-10.
"UCLA is very close," he said. "But I haven't gotten any phone calls from them either and they aren't recruiting me very hard. I went to one of their practices and their coaches seemed like cool guys. I think my running style would fit really good there. They run a lot of zone and stretch plays.
"I start both ways, as both a running back and outside linebacker," Sula said. "If I had to choose which position I would play in college, it would be running back, but I would play linebacker depending on the program.
"Washington likes the way I run downhill and what kind of vision I have," he said. "They also know I can play both ways and that I could maybe play linebacker for them. I've never just stuck with one spot. I want to keep my options open.
"I don't really have any timetable - whenever it comes to me," Sula said. "But I would like to take all five official visits. I don't have any set up yet. Air Force is the only school I've spoken with over the phone since schools could start calling again this month. Coach Miles from Washington is trying to find a game for me to come to when they are at home."
Carson opens up its season this Friday at Long Beach Veterans Stadium against Grandview High School in Aurora, Colo.
Sula reports a 3.8 core GPA and a 930 two-part SAT.
