The Texas Longhorns and Washington Huskies are just one day away from finding out where 5-star Gig Harbor (WA) product Austin Seferian-Jenkins is headed. The senior will announce in his home town on Monday night, around 6:00 P.M. Pacific time.

On Friday night, he appeared on KJR 950 A.M in Seattle to discuss his recruitment so far and where he stands with Texas and Washington. It only fueled speculation among the fan bases even more.

"It's been a great experience. I have met a lot of good people. It has made me a better person. It's been really a blessing," said Seferian-Jenkins. "It came down to Texas and Washington because Texas has one of best programs in the country. They have a great coaching staff and have good players. They have great quarterbacks. The people around there love the game. They treat it like religion. It's something I have never really had yet. It's just the ultimate state to play in.

"Washington is close to home and I have grown up here all my life. It's a state that has given me a lot and it would be nice to give back if I was to go there . Plus, they have a great coaching staff. All the players up there are great."

Other topics included the thought of helping turnaround UW, eliminating childhood favorite Miami, rumors about teams wanting him to play tackle, and if playing far away was a concern.

"It's not that much of a factor for me, because my parents and my family will support me wherever I go. They will still love me whether it's Texas or Washington...I'm not really worried about that," said the 5-star player. "It's about where I feel most comfortable as a person."

As of Friday, he told KJR that he was still undecided, but should should know on Saturday.

It should be an interesting day on Monday.
