Four-star California wide receiver Anthony Boyles (6-3, 185, 4.5) said he's narrowed it down to a top two. The prospect from Junipero Serra High School in Gardena said there's an 85% chance he'll choose Washington over Oregon. Both have offered.

"I'll see how well the schools do in the beginning of the season, and then depending on how they do, I want to commit mid-season. That also gives me time to weigh my options," Boyles said.

"The big thing about Washington is that I feel like I've known the coaches since I was a kid—especially coach (Eric) Yarber (wide receivers). He tells me everything I want to hear, but I feel like he's telling the truth. He can relate to the hardship I'm having at home, and he coached my idol from the Cincinnati Bengals, Chad Johnson (wide receiver). I think the football program can and will improve as long as they have a good quarterback with a good offensive line. I forget his name, but next year they are getting a quarterback who is number seven in the nation. I'm leaving to visit there and Oregon on a road trip today. It will be my first time seeing both schools," he said.

"Oregon's program is good. They throw the ball a lot and they have a good environment. They have one of the craziest stadiums with tons of hyped fans."

Boyles bench presses 250, squats 350, vertically jumps 37" and power cleans 230.

He reports a 2.7 core GPA and a 720/1600 SAT (which he retakes in fall).
