2016 Bishop O'Dowd LB Camilo Eifler, a Washington commit, talks about his senior season and his recent trip to see the Dawgs

2016 UW commit, Bishop O'Dowd LB Camilo Eifler, talks about his senior season and his recent trip to see the Dawgs...

"My trip up there was amazing," Camilo Eifler told Dawgman.com. "I wanted to get up and see the gameday atmosphere and it was really great because the fans were really into it and it was a good game (vs. Oregon).

"The coaches had wanted me to get up there on an unofficial visit to see it all for myself and I had a great time."

Eifler spent a lot of time talking with some of the other recruits that were on campus along with his future position coach and he watched one player in particular to see how he was used.

"Sean (McGrew) and I spent a lot of time hanging out and I talked to a couple of the other guys that were up there for their official visits," Eifler said. "II met Amandre Williams and he's a big dude, he'll probably be a BUCK, and I also met Taylor Rapp who is a hard-hitting safety, so I got to know some of the guys who I will be playing with once I get up there.

"I talked with coach (Bob) Gregory a lot and when the game was going on, I really focused in on Cory Littleton because I think that's the spot I will probably be at.

"Azeem (Victor) and Keishawn (Bierria) are holding things down inside, so I don't think I'll be going in there, but (Littleton) is a senior, so I can see myself going to his spot and being used that way."

Littleton has been adamant that he is 100% committed to Washington, but that hasn't stopped schools from continuing to come after him.

"Cal, UCLA and Texas A&M are the ones that are talking to me the most," Eifler said. "I tell them that I am completely committed to Washington and that won't change unless something weird happens, like the entire staff (at UW) gets fired, but that isn't going to happen, so I don't see me signing with anyone but them.

"I had actually thought about taking a couple of visits because it was my chance to see other parts of the country, but (the Husky coaches) aren't really big on guys taking other trips, so I'll just stick with my official visit to see them, probably in January, and then I'll sign with them on Signing Day.

"(McGrew) and I are going to schedule our trips together so that will be cool to hang out again."

Turning to his senior season, Eifler dislocated his elbow during fall camp and is just now getting back to 100% although he's been on the field for over a month.

"It was tough to get back and I'm just now starting to feel like I am back to what I can do normally," Eifler noted. "Last week I had my best game of the season so far (nine tackles, two sacks in a 21-20 loss to San Leandro) and I feel like I am playing pretty well right now."

Eifler and his teammates will take on Encinal tonight before closing out their season with a road game at Castro Valley next Friday.
