UW visit just part of the process for McGary

One of the top linemen on Washington's recruiting radar is Fife (Wa.) OL/DL Kaleb McGary. This past weekend, he was on campus to take in a practice at newly remodeled Husky Stadium and, while he was on campus, he also got a tour of the new facilities...

"It was very impressive," McGary told Dawgman.com. "I already knew they were going to be great, but the see them done is pretty special. My dad liked it too."

McGary said he spent a lot of time watching what the offensive line and defensive line were doing and liked what he saw.

"They get after it," McGary noted. "It was fun watching the technique they use and how the coaches are teaching it and all of that. I had a good time."

As far as offers, McGary said nothing new has come in for a while and he's just focusing on the schools that he's been talking to for a while and he's getting close to narrowing down his list.

"I just want to narrow things down and then focus on those schools," McGary said. "I was thinking of taking all of my visits after the season, but that's going to be a big time crunch for me since I also play basketball too.

"I'll probably take two visits during the season and then three after that. Once I've taken my visits, I'll wait a while and think about things and then when I'm ready I'll decide.

"I don't know exactly when I will make my decision. I haven't given myself a timeline or anything. I know I have until February to decide, so if it takes that long, it takes that long. I am hoping it doesn't though."

As far as which schools might get those visits, McGary was non-committal.

"Everyone is trying to get me to take a visit," McGary said. "Honestly, right now, I don't even really want to think about it too much. I just want to see where things fall and go from there."

This coming fall, McGary, who plays both defensive end and tight end for Fife, said he and his team are hoping for a big season that results in them playing for a championship, but he's also set out some goals for himself as well.

"Last year, I'm pretty sure I led my league in yards after the catch, so I want to do that again. If I didn't then I want to do it," McGary said. "We (the seniors) also need to be leaders and bring our guys together. I think we have a chance to be really good, but we have to go out and get it done."

McGary and his team will begin their season on Friday, September 6th with a home game against West Seattle.
