UW Nike Recruiting Notebook

Here's a look at some of the news and notes from the top prospects at the Washington Nike Camp including updates from five-star Josh Garnett, quarterback Matt Morin and OL Walker Williams...


  • Puyallup (Wash.) offensive guard Joshua Garnett said he'd be paring down his list this week to a top 10. Garnett said the schools that would definitely be on it included Washington, Cal, Michigan, Notre Dame and Stanford. He's also planning unofficial visits to Cal, Stanford, UCLA and USC this summer as well as Oregon.

  • Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes offensive tackle Zach Banner narrowed his schools down to nine finalists last week, which included Alabama, Florida State, LSU, Michigan, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, Oregon, USC and Washington. Banner said he will officially visit Michigan and Notre Dame for sure.

  • Everett (Wash.) Mariner running back Keivarae Russell was invited to the U.S. Army All-American Bowl.

  • Tacoma (Wash.) Baptist lineman Walker Williams, who attended the Nike Camp but didn't participate, was impressed with Colorado, moving them up on his list. Williams also said UCLA was impressive again, as it was his second visit. So far Wisconsin is his only scheduled official.

  • Mercer Island (Wash.) quarterback Jeff Lindquist said he was invited to the Semper Fidelis Bowl in Phoenix in December.

  • Sammamish (Wash.) Skyline 2013 quarterback Max Browne said he would like to make a decision before his senior year, which is still a year away, but that it is not a guarantee that will happen. Browne is headed to the Midwest to visit some schools next month including Notre Dame, Wisconsin and Michigan.

  • Temecula (Calif.) Chaparral quarterback Matt Morin said Arizona State, who has offered, and UCLA, who has not, are his two leaders. Morin nearly committed to Arizona State last week, but took an unofficial to UCLA and held off. He said he'd be talking with UCLA coaches this week to see where he stands in terms of an offer.

  • Stevenson Ranch (Wash.) West Ranch athlete Jeffrey Coprich still has a lone offer from Montana, but was planning to take an unofficial visit to Washington on Monday while in town for the Nike Camp.

  • Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes defensive tackle Zaheer Webb said he's still sitting on an offer from Colorado while Seattle (Wash.) O'Dea cornerback Jayshawn Jordan, the DB MVP, said Washington State was still his lone offer.
