Huskies Offer Mondeaux

Portland (Ore.) Jesuit tight end Henry Mondeaux headed north this weekend for an unofficial visit to Washington. He enjoyed his visit and was given some good news by Washington head coach Steve Sarkisian.

"Washington offered me," said Mondeaux. "I now have offers from Oregon State and Washington."

Mondeaux had never been to Montlake before and was surprised by what he saw.

"It was my first time there, it was really fun," said Mondeaux. "I really liked the campus and I was surprised at how good of academics they have there. Their graduation rate for student athletes and football players were great. On the football field I thought the coaches were great, the facilities too."

While the Huskies haven't clarified what position they see the 6'4" 224lbs prospect playing, a good hint would be that his primary recruiter is new tight end coach Jordan Paopao.

"They haven't said yet (on position)," said Mondeaux. "But I think they are leaning towards tight end."

Washington had many of the top prospects in the region in attendance and Mondeaux said they delivered a clear message.

"I think the biggest thing was really the family that they have there and how much the coaches cared about them," said Mondeaux. "Even outside of football, they want them to be successful. They provide them with a strong foundation to become better men, not just football players."

Mondeaux has heard more from coaches in the past week and notices a shift from the 2013 to the 2014 recruiting class.

"Definitely more attention and invites to all the junior days and letters," said Mondeaux. "It hasn't been dramatic, but a clear change of focus by the coaches."

The Washington visit was his first and he is hoping to take more.

"I am not entirely sure, it all depends on my basketball schedule," said Mondeaux. "I don't want to miss any practices as we get closer to the state playoffs."
