Trip Report - Kelvin York

As a freshman in 2010, Fullerton RB Kelvin York rushed for over 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns, but a meniscus tear in one of his knees caused him to miss most of his sophomore season this year. Even so, Washington has remained focused on the talented runner and this weekend he was in Seattle for his official visit and he gave his trip a 10...

"Oh man, I loved everything about my visit," York told "I really get along well with the coaches and I loved the stadium.

"Everyone tells you how loud it is up there, but you just don't understand that until you get there and you hear it for yourself.

"Those fans were loud and into the game and you couldn't hear yourself at all it was so loud."

RB Deontae Cooper hosted York on his trip and the two spent time just getting to know each other and they also realized they had something in common.

"He's dealing with an ACL injury and I have a tear in my meniscus and I'm getting surgery on December 14th, so we talked about that and just keeping your head up," York said. "He was a real good guy and I liked hanging out with him.

"We got a lot of great info on the visit from meeting with the coaches and seeing the campus and then the plans for the new stadium there, it was all really impressive.

"I'd give it a 10 for sure."

York committed to USC back in May, but because of his injury and their limited available scholarships, he's unsure what will happen with them.

"They haven't really dropped me yet, but they'll be making a decision in the next week or so," York said. "Even if they come back and say that they still want me, I'm going to keep my options open.

"Washington is up there and I'm visiting Utah on December 9th and I might take a visit to Miami too.

"Washington has offered me. Neither one of the other two have offered yet, but I feel like they are both close and they could offer on my visits."

York said he plans to sign with a school on December 21st (the first day of the mid-year signing period for JUCO players) and he will have three years to play two wherever he ends up.
