4-star LB Reggie Hughes Has Time Frame In Mind

Calabasas (Calif.) four-star linebacker Reggie Hughes checked out Washington State last weekend and had a good time on the Palouse...

Calabasas (Calif.) linebacker Reggie Hughes is one of the top linebackers in the West in a loaded class.


Hughes is in double-digits on offers and took a visit to one of the schools that offered, Washington State, last weekend.

"It was good there, the coaches were really cool and the players were nice," said Hughes.  "They have a beautiful campus."  

The visit gave Hughes a chance to see the Cougs' spring game.

"I thought the spring game was good too," said Hughes.  "There were a lot of big hits and good defensive play, especially with the limitations they had because it was a spring game.  I also got to see some of the explosive guys they have on their offense." 

The highlight for him, though, was meeting with the players and coaches.

"The coaching staff and the players stood out most to me," said Hughes.  "I met with Coach (Ken) Wilson, Coach (Alex) Grinch and Coach (Roy) Manning."

Hughes has already visited three other schools this spring.

"I've been to Arizona StateWashington and UCLA," said Hughes.  

He'll be back in Westwood this weekend.

"I'm going to UCLA on Saturday for their Spring Game," said Hughes.  "I went to one practice at UCLA already this spring.  It was high energy and it was good to see my friends compete."

That included Darnay Holmes, his Calabasas teammate last fall.  Hughes plays for Holmes' father, Darick, on the 7v7 circuit with ProWay.

Hughes plans to visit a couple more schools.

"I'm planning to visit Michigan State and Oregon State," said Hughes.  "And I'm going to the Washington camp in July."

The Huskies are one of a handful of schools recruiting Hughes that have yet to offer.

"ArizonaUtahOregon, Washington, ColoradoWyomingBoise State and Connecticut are recruiting me and could be close to offering," said Hughes.

A decision from Hughes is still a ways off.

"I want to commit after my senior season," said Hughes.
