Last Visit Weekend Important For UW '14 Class

The final weekend of official visits is upon us as we head down the homestretch toward Signing Day on February 5th. Five prospects will be on campus including two who have already committed as well as an Army All-American...

St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Ca.) CB Naijiel Hale - Hale has been committed to Arizona for a while and took to Twitter yesterday talking about how much he is looking forward to being a Wildcat. However, he will be on Montlake this weekend and there are indications that he could be a lean to the Dawgs and not as solid as might appear to Arizona. We probably won't know which is true until Signing Day, but there is a chance the Huskies could wind up with his commitment before he leaves. With only three scholarship corners on the roster, the Huskies are in the market to bring in three with this class and they already have Sidney Jones and Brandon Lewis and would love to add a player with Hale's talents before it's all said and done.

Status: Soft Verbal to Arizona

Chaminade College Prep (West Hills, Ca.) TE/WR Brayden Lenius - Lenius was heavy Washington State lean for a while and many thought he was going to commit to the Cougs after his official visit. However, his eyes turned to other schools and he will be in town this evening after visiting Utah earlier this week. Word is the Huskies have the inside track if they can sell him on how he will be used in their system. Losing Chase Blakley (some think that he was dropped by the Huskies) opened up a spot for an athletic big man to find his way into the class and the Huskies could easily find a spot for him with his outstanding size and speed combination.

Chaminade College Prep (West Hills, Ca.) S Jojo McIntosh - McIntosh was committed to UCLA for months before opting to look around and then gave Washington his pledge back in mid-December shortly after Chris Petersen and his staff hit the road recruiting. He's a physically gifted safety prospect, but, this weekend, his biggest asset might be the fact that he is close with both Lenius and Hale, two players that Washington wants to add to their list of commitments.

Status: Committed to Washington

Highland (Palmdale, Ca.) OT Devin Burleson - This is the lineman we have known was visiting all week, but were not able to release his name until today. Burleson is committed to San Diego State, but the Huskies really like what he has to offer on the athleticism scale. He's a former basketball player who has started to add some size to his 6'8" frame. Expect the Dawgs to put some pressure on Burleson before he leaves on Sunday and there's a good chance he winds up a Husky if all goes well.

Status: Soft Verbal to San Diego State

Loyola (Los Angeles, Ca.) OT John Turner - Turner is a player whose stock has risen since the start of the season and he's had plenty of schools after him although only three have offered. He committed to Washington back at the beginning of the month and is set to sign with the Dawgs next weekend.
