Oregon TE Prospect Talks UW Offer

On his visit to Montlake recently, West Salem (Or.) TE Jacob Kizer received an offer from the Husky coaches. Dawgman.com caught up with the Beaver State prospect and he updated us on things...

"I went up there (on Sunday) and had a great time," Kizer told Dawgman.com. "The visit went really well with the coaches and I really liked the facilities and the campus. I really had a great time up there."

While on his visit, the Husky coaches extended him an offer.

"I had been talking with the tight ends coach (Jordan Paopao) and he asked me to come up," Kizer said. "They just said they liked the way I play and what I can do and that they think I'm a good fit in their system, so they offered me as a tight end.

"It was real exciting. I really like them a lot and am definitely going to consider them."

While the offer greatly increased his interest in the Dawgs, Kizer said he isn't close to making a decision.

"Besides Washington, I have offers from Eastern Washington, Montana, Montana State, Oregon State and Wyoming and I've been talking a lot with Washington State and Air Force too," Kizer noted. "I'm not really close to committing to anyone. I want to take my time and take some visits before I make my decision, so it will probably be after my season is over."

Kizer said academics, the program in general and how he fits in with the coaches and players will be some key areas he looks at when he sits down to make his decision.

Kizer earned First Team All-State honors as a junior in 2014 while helping to lead his team to the 6A State Semi-Finals.
