Tucker still locked into being a Husky

Ouachita Parish (Monroe, La.) LB/DE Caleb Tucker was in Death Valley over the weekend to watch Washington take on LSU and, while the game was anything but competitive, he told Dawgman.com that he is still focused on being a Husky and can't wait to enroll in January...

"It wasn't what you wanted to see, but I saw some things out there that let me know that they aren't that far away," Tucker told Dawgman.com the day after Washington's loss to LSU. "It was more than that though. I mean, you want to win and all that, but I just fell in love with Seattle and the school and everything that the coaches are about, that's why I chose Washington."

Speaking of choosing Washington, Tucker mentioned that most of his friends think he is heading east...not west.

"A lot of people think Washington is in D.C. and a lot of people are surprised," Tucker said with a chuckle. "I'm not worried about what other people think though. They don't understand how great it is up there and how beautiful it is. If they did get up there, they would see why I chose it."

Tucker and two of his frieds attended Saturday's game at LSU and he said they decided to take in all of the atmosphere that was there to be had before the game.

"I was with my teammates Cameron Sims and Shelby Smith," Tucker noted. "We were just walking around the campus a little and checking out the tailgating a bit. I actually saw a bunch of Washington Husky fans around, that was interesting."

As far as his commitment to Washington, Tucker said he's unwavering in his decision and he expects to be in Seattle in January.

"I've been talking to Houston, Louisiana Tech, ULM and Southern Miss, but I'm still a Husky," Tucker noted. "I'm very excited to get up there and be part of what they are building there."

In Ouachita's game against Captain Shreve on Friday night, Tucker posted 8.5 tackles including four tackles-for-loss.

We will continue to keep track of Tucker's progress this fall and will update news as it happens with him.
