Rancho Cucamonga (Calif.) Los Osos defensive end Tony Washington, who has 13 offers, has set up four official visits.

"I'm going to UTEP on September 12th, Oregon on October 3rd, Arizona on October 24th and Oregon State on November 14th," said Washington.

As for the last visit?

"I'm visiting the four schools that are my top schools and I'm saving the last one for maybe a late comer," said Washington.

And those late comers could include three schools, two, where former Los Osos teammates are freshman.

"Vanderbilt, Northwestern and UCLA have been talking to me a lot in the past few months," said Washington. "They all said they'll be watching me this season."

Northwestern signed Los Osos teammate Arby Fields and UCLA signed Richard Brehaut, another Washington teammate.

"Both of them have been trying to persuade me to go to their schools," said Washington. "I was actually at UCLA's practice last Sunday. It was real cool. I wanted to see what college football camp was all about so I'd know for next summer. Everybody went all out and hustled."

He's coming off a year in which he had 60 tackles, 12 tackles for loss, nine sacks, three forced fumble and two fumble recoveries for the Grizzlies, who advanced to the CIF-SS semifinals. This year, he'll play much more tight end as the Grizzlies try to maintain their success with Brehaut and Fields gone.

"We have a tough preseason all throughout our schedule, but our coach wants us to be prepared," said Washington.
