Visit To UW Impresses Scrempos

Washington makes huge strides with Milpitas (Ca.) DE Jason Scrempos after he visits Seattle...

"I had a great visit up there. It blew me away," Scrempos told "I went up there this past weekend and I would say it was much more than I expected.

"From the facilities to the academics to the city and the program, everything, it was just completely overwhelming."

The Huskies have made Scrempos a priority in their defensive line recruiting and he said that's made a big impression on him as well.

"They like me as a defensive end, but they said they could see me growing into a tackle if I add some more size," the 6'6", 250-pounder said. "They have a guy up there right now (Evan Hudson) that plays at tackle and some at end and I'm fine with that. Anyway that I can help the team is what I want to do."

In addition to his offer from the Huskies, Scrempos also has full rides from the likes of Washington State, Cal, Arizona, Nevada, San Jose State, Colorado State and Fresno State.

"So far, I've taken a visit to U-Dub and Cal," Scrempos noted. "Cal and Washington are a lot alike as far as the academics and the setting.

"They both have their own little communities right there for you to see and where you can do stuff, but then they aren't far from the city and also they have their own places where you can go out into the woods and nature and stuff, so it was pretty cool to see that.

"I like the staff at Cal. They are cool coaches and they stress the academics a lot. Washington's staff is great too and they are big on becoming a man, treating others the right way, but also they are about winning in every phase of what they do, whether that's football, life, academics, whatever, they compete all the time and that was something that stuck out to me."

As far as camps are concerned, Scrempos is only looking to spend time with his team and go to the team camps they have scheduled including USC's camp.

"The coaches there (at USC) offered me when they were at Washington, but I am not sure they are really looking at me," Scrempos said. "That's fine though. I have plenty of opportunities already and I have some great options, so I'm just looking at what I have and I will decide what I want to do about visits and stuff."

With the process moving along, Scrempos has been thinking about when he'd like to make a decision, but he noted that he doesn't have a deadline or timeline for when a commitment will come.

"Obviously, I'd love to take all the time I could and take my visits and then decide, but I know the game and how it's played," Scrempos said. "Spots will start to fill up and I don't want to miss out on things just to take my time, so I'll just see how things go and I will stay in touch with the coaches and just see how things progress."

As a sophomore in 2012, Scrempos posted 83 tackles (44 solo) and 10 sacks and in 2013, as a junior, he racked up 99 tackles (56 solo) and 12 sacks.
