Redfield has Husky offer in his sights

The Huskies have been heavily recruiting one of the top safety prospects in the country and Mission Viejo (Ca.) S Max Redfield said he's been talking to the Washington coaches quite a bit lately...

"I've known coach (Tosh) Lupoi for a while now," Redfield told "I know him back when he was coaching at Cal and now he's Washington, so we've sorta just continued the relationship."

The Huskies have yet to offer the talented safety, at least officially, although he claims a verbal offer from them.

"I have 14 offers right now and a bunch of schools that have verbally offered me, but they aren't official offers yet," Redfield noted. "Washington is a school that is in that second group, but if or when they officially offer, they are definitely a school I'm looking at and am really interested in.

"With the cost of travel right now, it could be tough getting out to all the schools that have offered me and the ones I'm interested in, but if I can, I want to get up there for spring ball at some point just so I can see a practice and see the campus and meet with he coaches face to face."

In addition to his interest from Washington, Redfield has offers from USC, Arizona, Arizona State, California, Colorado, Mississippi, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Oklahoma, UCLA and Vanderbilt among others.

Even with that large selection, he has two favorite schools in mind although he admits it is too early in the process to say they are the only schools he is seriously considering.

"Oregon and USC are my top two schools," Rexfield admitted. "They are the schools that have been on me the longest and I like them a lot, but I'm still wide open to anyone that wants to offer me and I want to get out and see all of the schools that I can."

As a junior starter on both sides of the ball last season, Redfield put up solid numbers, hauling in 32 receptions for 528 yards and five touchdowns from his receiver spot on offense while racking up 33 tackles and two interceptions from his free safety position on the defensive side of the ball.

"I'd call myself a ballhawk more than an enforcer, but I feel like I can come up and make the big hit too," Redfield said. "If I had the chance to make a big hit or get an interception, I'd choose the interception because it gives the ball back to our offense and that's how you win games."

With his 6'3", 195 pound frame, Redfield is the ideal size to play a centerfield spot at the next level. will have more from Redfield as he gets closer to taking some unofficial visits during the spring and we will update news as it happens with him.
