Hindy talks about UW commitment

There are always surprises on Signing Day and this year was no different as Chaminade Prep (West Hills, Ca.) OT Taylor Hindy signed his letter-of-intent and faxed it into Washington. Dawgman.com caught up with the multi-talented prospect and he updated us on how things progressed and why he now is a Husky...

"I got offered back on January 22nd and when I got it I committed to them and said I was ready to be a Dawg," Hindy told Dawgman.com in between classes after faxing in his letter-of-intent. "They told me not to say anything and that they wanted to keep it quiet and I told them I was fine with that."

As a senior this year, Hindy played right tackle, center and long-snapper for the Eagles.

"They said they are bringing me in at tackle, but they also want me as a long-snapper too," Hindy said. "I'm just excited to get up there and have a chance to play Pac 12 ball."

Hindy was unable to take an official visit to Washington because the Huskies ran out of visits to offer, but he said that didn't matter as he had already fallen in love with the campus and the school.

"I visited there for their camp last summer and I fell in love with it almost right away," Hindy noted. "I like the coaches a lot and they needed lineman, so that was great news for me and I was sold."

In addition to his offer from the Huskies, Hindy also had offers from Utah State and Eastern Washington and was getting interest from schools like Hawaii, San Jose State, Colorado State and Arizona.

Hindy plans to enroll at Washington for the LEAP program in early July.
