Trip Report - Anthony Camargo

This weekend, Bishop Amat (La Puente, Ca.) LB Anthony Camargo took his official visit to Seattle to check out Washington and get the "red carpet" treatment. What did he think about his time on Montlake? Read on to find out...

"It was a terrific overall experience," Camargo told after returning home from his trip. "My dad came up with me and we got to sit down and talk to coach (Chris) Petersen.

"He and the whole staff talked about getting your ready for life and what it means to get an education from Washington. He wants to make you into a better man and if you get a chance to play (in the NFL) then that will be exciting too."

Camargo's host on his trip was freshman DL Shane Bowman, a local player who shared a lot about his decision to become a Husky.

"He talked a lot about the weather and the area," Camargo said. "It's beautiful up there and the facilities and the campus are great.

"He said Washington was where he wanted to be and he loves it there and he wouldn't trad it for anything."

Speaking of the weather, Camargo said the fact that Washington's game with Arizona State featured high winds and driving rain during most of the evening didn't deter him from wanting to become a Husky.

"I actually really liked it up there. The weather wasn't that bad," Camargo said. "Honestly, I'd prefer it to be like that because I don't want to go up there and have it be all sunny and get a false sense of what the place is like."

In addition to all of the other features on his trip, Camargo said his time with the team on Friday really stood out.

"I got to go through a lot of their pre-game stuff the night before," Camargo said. "It was great to have a meal with them and to hear coach Petersen speak to the team. I really liked that part a lot."

Camargo has already visited Boise State (back in September) and he plans to take official visits to Harvard and Yale in December.

"I'll take those trips and see where things stand," Camargo said. "I want to keep things open and see if some other schools come in and offer and then have that last one to take a visit, but right now I am thinking about a decision in December sometimes, but I really don't have a date."
