Trip Report - Dane Crane

Washington commit Santa Margarita (Ca.) Catholic OL Dane Crane spent the past 48 hours in Seattle taking in the Huskies' big upset of Stanford while on his official visit. After returning home, the talented offensive lineman told that he and the rest of the visitors were impressed with what they saw and he enjoyed every bit of his time in the Emerald City...

"I had a great time," Crane told "I loved the atmosphere at the game. It was so loud in there and people were telling me that a game at Husky Stadium is even louder, which I just can't even imagine. It was just a great time overall."

Crane and close friend Connor O'Brien, also a commitment to Washington, spent time talking with the other three official visitors - Johnny Johnson, Jermaine Kelly and Chris Hawkins - hoping to get them in the boat.

"We definitely were talking to them about stuff," Crane said. "We were all together most of the time, so we talked about a lot of stuff and we were telling them why we chose Washington and we want them to join us, but we didn't really put pressure on them. You want to play with the best players you can and they were good people, so we sorta nudged them, but we didn't put a lot of pressure on."

Crane's hosts on his visit were Erik Kohler and Mike Criste and he said they answered all of his questions.

"We talked a lot about what it was like being a player there and what the coaches are like," Crane noted. "They answered all of my questions and just made me feel at home. It was a really great experience."

As far as the highlight of his trip, Crane was torn, but said it was meeting his future teammates.

"It was great to get to know them and to just get a feel for what it was like to be a player there," Crane said. "The game was awesome and we had a great time there, but getting to know the guys I will be playing ball with for the next four or five years was probably the best part, at least for me."

Crane said he will not be taking any more visits and that he can't wait to get to play for the Dawgs.
