Huskies are high on Voeller's list

Washington is in the market for at least four offensive linemen in the 2013 recruiting class and one of their first offers at the position went to West Linn (Or.) OL Evan Voeller and even though he has several other schools that have given him full rides, he has the Huskies very high on his list…

"Yeah, it's safe to say I like them a lot," Voeller told "I really like the coaches at Washington and their program. It's close to home and I feel like they are a program that is on the rise and will keep going up.

"I have been talking with coach (Tosh) Lupoi from there a lot. I want to get up there for Junior Day. I've been up there a couple of times and really enjoyed it. I was there when they played Oregon last year for the last game at Husky Stadium and that was awesome. The crowd was really loud. It was really impressive, even though they didn't end up winning."

In addition to his offer from the Huskies, Voeller also has offers from Boise State, Purdue, Texas A&M, UCLA and Washington State.

"Oregon is probably the next closest to offering me and I've been talking a lot with Oregon State too," Voeller said. "Other than those two schools, I'm hearing from a lot of other schools, but those are the ones who seem like the closest to offering."

Voeller isn't much for words, preferring to do most of his talking on the field and he said he has no preference on what he enjoys doing more on the field.

"I like being aggressive and I feel like I do both -- pass and run blocking -- well," Voeller said. "I love playing football. It's what I've done for a long time and it's sorta, in my blood, I guess you could say."

Voeller has yet to set a timeline for when he wants to make a decision, but said he'd like to decide before his senior season although he admitted, if he isn't ready to decide by then, he will likely take some or all of his visits and then make his choice.

We will have more in the coming weeks and months on Voeller as the recruiting process continues.
