"I just committed to (the Washington) coaches about 20 minutes ago," Daniel Bridge-Gadd told Dawgman.com. "I called coach Pete (Chris Petersen) and told him I wanted to commit and he was ecstatic. He said he thinks I can be the next great Husky quarterback and he was happy to get me into the fold there."
This past weekend, Bridge-Gadd, who committed to New Mexico State during the summer, took his official visit to Montlake and he said things couldn't have gone better.
"The crowd there was really into the game and it was amazing to see the support of the whole community there," Bridge-Gadd noted. "I loved being down on the field before the game and I spent a lot of time talking with Sean McGrew and I also got to spend a lot of time with some of the other commits who had come up for the game.
"It's really exciting to see some of the talent they are bringing in and how we could all wind up playing together."
Bridge-Gadd also got to talk with Husky offensive coordinator Jonathan Smith.
"He said he thought my skills would fit perfectly up there and he said that their offense can be tailored to fit the skills of the quarterback they have so it's not going to be exactly the same every year," Bridge-Gadd noted.
On his visit, Bridge-Gadd's host was freshman OL Henry Roberts.
"He's a bid dude, like 6'6. 300 pounds, and he's from that area, so he knows a lot about the University of Washington and he showed me his house and he talked about why he chose to go there," Bridge-Gadd added.
In addition to his offers from Washington and New Mexico State, Bridge-Gadd also had offers from San Jose State, UNLV, Eastern Washington and Dartmouth among others and he said Utah and Nevada have both picked up their interest in the past few weeks.
"I'm just real excited to be a Husky and I am looking forward to getting back up there to get things started," Bridge-Gadd noted.
Bridge-Gadd will graduate in December before enrolling at Washington in January to get a jump start on learning the Husky offense.
