Weaver Talks UW Offer, Future Plans

Gonzaga Prep (Spokane, Wa.) DE/LB Evan Weaver and his parents made the five-hour drive on Sunday to meet with the Husky coaching staff and their efforts were rewarded as Washington head coach Chris Petersen and his staff extended an offer to the arguably the best prospect east of the mountains...

"About a week and a half ago, (the Washington coaching staff) asked us to come over today," Weaver told Dawgman.com as he and his family made the long drive back home. "We spent time with the coaches there, coach Pete, coach (Jeff) Choate and coach (Bob) Gregory.

"They said that they wanted to offer me earlier, but they couldn't decide where they wanted to play me, so they just wanted to evaluate me more and figure that out."

So, where do the Huskies project Weaver?

"Actually, they still haven't figured it out yet," Weaver said with a chuckle. "Every time they see me they said that I'm bigger and that's probably true, but they said they aren't worried about that right now and they knew they wanted to offer me and let me know they wanted to be a Husky."

With the addition of the offer from the Huskies, Weaver is now up to 11 with full rides from Army, Boise State, California, Colorado State, Idaho, Montana, UNLV, Utah, Washington State and Wyoming.

"I've been getting a lot of stuff from USC and I've been hearing from Oregon State, Missouri, Oregon, Northwestern and Purdue," Weaver noted. "I'm planning to go to the Northwest Elite camp (in Renton) and then one day of the Washington Rising Stars camp.

"I'm also planning on going to USC and Oregon's camps as well."

As far as when he plans to make a decision, Weaver isn't really thinking about that at this time.

"I'll narrow my list down at some point in late July or early August and then we'll see how things go," Weaver said. "I need to find the right school for me, so I'm not going to rush it."

Weaver is a two-time, First Team All-State selection who finished with 123 tackles, 36 tackles-for-loss, 14 sacks while also posting six forced fumbles, one blocked field goal, one blocked extra point and two blocked punts while helping to lead the Bulldogs to an 10-2 record, earning Consensus All-State, GSL Defensive MVP and All-Area Defensive MVP.
