Huskies impress Waller

Washington's thrilling 32-31 win over USC Saturday was seen in person by several big-time SoCal recruits and one, Long Beach Poly LB/DE Corey Waller told on Sunday that he was impressed with what he saw from the Dawgs and how he could fit into their system should he decide to commit...

"That game was crazy," Waller said. "It was really exciting, from both sides. I really enjoyed the game and watching two teams I like a lot play so well.

"Washington's defensive was getting run over for a while and there was a time when I sorta pictured myself out there helping them and what I could have done.

"USC has some great backs and they were real physical, but Washington has a lot of young guys playing and they will get better."

Waller was joined by several of his close friends at the game, including Beverly Hills DE Greg Townsend and Lakewood DT Todd Barr.

"We were watching the game and having fun spending time together," Waller said. "I think they were pretty impressed with Washington and how they played and I know Greg and Todd both have U-Dub as one of their top teams."

Waller said he and his teammate and friend, Kameron Jackson, are both excited to get up to Montlake next week to see the school up close and meet with the coaches.

"We're coming up for their game against Oregon State," Waller noted. "I've never been up there before and I can't wait to get up there and talk to the coaches about things.

"Honestly, I probably talk to Kameron about U-Dub more than he talks to me about them. I talk about playing together and that's something we'd both like to do if it works out."

Waller took a visit to Boise State recently and got an offer from head coach Chris Peterson.

"They have some talented guys up there and they fly around and make plays," Waller said. "I really enjoyed my time there and they really showed me a lot.

"They aren't my favorite right now, but they are up there."

In addition to his planned visit to Washington, Oregon and California are both trying to get him to visit as well.

"I'll probably schedule those after my season, but I'm not really sure right now," Waller said. "I can probably just go on unofficials to the California schools and take my officials to all out-of-state schools.

"I'll probably take all my visits, but honestly, if I feel like the time is right and I've only taken two visits, then I'll commit and be done and not worry about the rest."

This weekend, Waller and his Jackrabbit teammates take on Lakewood in a big-time matchup that will be televised on a regional Fox network.
