Forde (6-4, 240, 4.69) didn't verbally commit during while on his trip to the Palouse, but he did thoroughly enjoy himself.
"It was a great visit," said Forde.
Forde is listed as a three-star DE on Scout.com but his best position at the next level might be on offense at left tackle. Talking football with the WSU coaches were among his trip highlights.
"I got to talk to the coaches about a lot of stuff...I had a good time out there," said Forde.
The academic presentations, campus and WSU fans all received high marks from Forde.
"The way the people are out there, and the academics. It was an overall great visit," said Forde.
Forde is an exceptional student at Woodinville High, with a 3.73 GPA in a curriculum that includes honors classes.
FORDE SAID HE plans on taking at least one other official visit before making a decision. He has offers from WSU, Army, Air Force, Wyoming and Idaho.
Forde is a rarity these days -- a three sport standout. At Woodinville, Forde participates in football, basketball and track. At the state championships last year in track and field, he placed 14th in the shot-put (49'-6") as a junior.
Brian Forde starred at linebacker for the Cougars from 1985-87 and later played for a number of years in the NFL and CFL. He holds the WSU record for most tackles in a game (28) and is No. 3 on the career tackles list (436).
