Huskies a favorite of top 2014 OL prospect

With Washington in the market for top offensive linemen in 2014, one player they are recruiting pretty heavily is Windsor (Co.) OL Trenton Noller. The talented prospect recently received his first offer, from the University of Arizona, and told that the Huskies are a program very high on his list...

"I really love (Washington)," Noller told "It really felt like home to me when I was up there."

Noller's main recruiter with the Huskies is linebacker coach Peter Sirmon and he said the two have a good relationship, but he also wants to talk with a couple of others on the staff.

"I definitely want to get to know the offensive line coach and the head coach better," Noller noted.

As far as his offer from Arizona, things had been in the works for a while and they finally came to a head today when his father called them about sending them some game film.

"My dad called a bunch of schools about sending them film from my first three games so far this year and when he called them they said I had an offer," Noller recalled. "I guess they had been trying to reach me, but hadn't been able to talk to me and they couldn't reach my coach either, so it was sorta a coincidence that we just happened to call them."

As far as making a decision, things are basically just getting off the ground for the talented junior and he said he doesn't want to make a hasty decision.

"I'm definitely keeping a clear head about things," Noller noted. "I want to take all of my visits, see a bunch of schools in the spring and just make sure I'm seeing everything I can before I make my decision."

In addition to his offer from the Wildcats and heavy interest in Washington, Noller is being recruited hard by Oregon, Utah, Vanderbilt, Boise State and Colorado as well as several other schools.

All of the schools recruiting Noller like him inside, where his ideal size (6'3, 311) and aggressive style are a perfect fit.

"I have no desire to play tackle right now," Noller said with a chuckle. "I think it's pretty clear that I'm an inside guy. I just love that it is strength versus strength and I feel like nobody can beat me one-on-one."

Windsor is off to a 1-1 start so far this season and the Wizards have put up 216 yards per game on the ground, with Noller leading the way.
