Wellington Talks UW Junior Day

Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wa.) RB/LB Brandon Wellington prefers to let his playing do the talking, but the two-way star took the time to update Dawgman.com recently on his visit to Washington and where he'd like to play once he gets to Montlake in the summer of 2016...

"I talked to both coach (Keith) Bhonapha and coach (Bob) Gregory when I went up for Junior Day," Wellington told Dawgman.com. "Honestly I don't know (where I want to play). I guess it would be wherever I will get on the field first -- running back or linebacker."

As far as the rest of the Junior Day events that he took part in on February 7th, Wellington said he had his usual great time.

"I always have a great time there," Wellington said. "I've been up there a bunch already, so I had already had seen the facilities and stuff.

"It was good though. It was nice to see who could possibly be my teammates when I go there."

Wellington committed to Washington before the start of the 2014 football season over offers from Colorado, Oregon State and Washington State.

He said that TCU is a school who is close to offering as well.

As a junior this past season, Wellington played both ways for the 3A State Champs, managing to run for over 500 yards and six touchdowns on offense while totaling over 30 tackles on defense.

He's been considered one of the top athletes, regardless of position, in the Northwest for some time and he has a chance to have a standout senior season this fall on both sides of the ball.
