Todd likes what UW has to offer

Last month, Washington brought in what was arguably the top wideout class in country and they are already hot on the trail of one of the top receivers on the West Coast for the 2014 class in La Mirada (Ca.) WR Dallis Todd...

Todd has offers from schools across the country, including Arizona State, Clemson, Colorado State, Florida, Florida State, Iowa State, Louisville, Mississippi, Nebraska, Nevada, New Mexico State, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Syracuse, Tennessee, Utah and Washington.

The Huskies got in the mix relatively early for Todd, offering him in February, and he said it's an offer that has him interested in finding out what the Husky program has to offer.

"I've heard from a lot of people about the program they are building there," Todd told Dawgman.com. "They have a great offense and I know a couple of the guys that signed there and they have some great receivers up there.

"I haven't really been talking to just one coach at Washington. I've been talking to the whole staff. Coach (Steve) Sarkisian is the coach that offered me. He said they love my size and how I go up and get the ball and they think I'd be a great fit in their offense."

As far as unofficial visits this spring, Todd has already been to one school and plans to head to the Midwest in the next few weeks.

"I've been to USC's Junior Day and I'm heading out to Ohio State's Junior Day in a couple of weeks," Todd said. "I wasn't able to make it up to Washington's Junior Day, but I want to get up there for some of their spring practices so hopefully I'm able to get up there next month, but if not I can get up there in May or June just to check it out."

As a junior this past season, Todd posted 72 receptions for 1,041 yards and 10 touchdowns, using his size, soft hands and underrated speed to be a threat from almost anywhere on the field.

"Honestly, I've never really run a 40 or anything like that," Todd said. "All I know is that people don't catch me when I get into the open field. I've never been caught from behind.

"As far as me as a receiver, I'm good when the ball is in the air. That's got a lot to do with my height (6'5"), but I can jump pretty well and I have the confidence that if the ball is in the air, it's mine and I'm going to come down with it as long as it's anywhere close to me."

Todd said he most likely will wait until late January before he makes a decision and wants to take all of his visits before he signs with a school.
