Visit To UW Impresses Love

Centennial (Corona, Ca.) DB Kentrell Love was one of several out-of-state recruits that spent the better part of Saturday on Montlake, taking UW's final spring scrimmage while also touring the facilities and meeting with the coaches. How did things go? Read on to find out...

"It was a really good visit. I had a really good time," Love told on Sunday. "We had a good time at the practice and then afterwards, a bunch of us got a presentation from the coaches and we got to meet with our position coach and also see the facilities.

"Coach (Chris) Petersen really cares about his players after football is over, whether that's the NFL or college football, and he wants you to be successful on and off the field.

"One area that really stood out to me was the program and also the 12 to one student/professor ratio is great. It means you will have the chance to learn more and get more one-on-one stuff with your professors."

This was Love's first trip to Seattle and he said the town and weather suited him just fine.

"It's definitely different than L.A., but I like it a lot," Love noted. "The weather is nice. It's been sunny the whole time I've been here."

Washington didn't extend him an offer, but secondary coach Jimmy Lake told the senior-to-be that the Huskies are close to offering.

"He said he's been watching my film and he likes me a lot and that's he's real close to offering," Love said. "He's coming down in a couple of weeks and we'll see what happens."

In addition to his heavy interest from the Huskies, Love has also been talking with Colorado.

This past season, as a junior, Love totaled 31 tackles and six pass breakups for a team that went 12-3 and lost in the CIF Open Division Championship Game.

"I played corner last year, but this year I will play safety and corner," Love said. "I like to hit and cover and just be a playmaker for my team, so anyway that I can help I will do it."

Love will hit the camp circuit this summer and we will have more on him in the coming weeks and months as he continues to work his way through the recruiting process. Top Stories
