Trip Report - Connor Cree

He grew up with Oregon on his mind, but Connor Cree verbally committed to Washington back at the end of April - ironically enough just shortly after a trip to Eugene. The 6-foot-5, 220-pound athlete told of his official visit to Montlake this past weekend, and how he's firmly 'stuck' on U-Dub.

"I got there Friday and I just got back," Cree told Dawgman of his trip. "It was cool."

He said one of the big highlights of his visit was getting a chance to meet the players and see how they interact with each other. "They were really down to earth and easy to talk to," he said. "They are just people too. They were fun to hang around with."

Cree, who played for Skyline High School in Sammamish, was hosted by another former Spartan - Cooper Pelluer. Add to it the fact that Cree's teammate - Kasen Williams - was also on his official visit, and Cree felt right at home.

"I never expected that we would end up going to the same college and play for the same team," Cree said of Williams. Cree also met current Husky players like Nick Montana, Michael Hartvigson and some other players from California.

Cree has played offense and defense for Skyline during his career, so does he have a feel for where he'll play for UW? "There's no real official position right now," he said. "I could start out at defensive end, or I could end up at linebacker, depending on how I do. If I had to guess, I think I'll be at end."

He also confirmed that he's not taking any more official visits. "I'm stuck on going to U-Dub," Cree said.

Now that his lone official trip is done, Cree has put on his recruiting hat. "I've got to see who is on the fence for Washington," he said.
