2016 JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Ca.) OL Nick Harris will visit Washington in mid-January and he's excited to become a Husky

As a senior this past season, JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Ca.) OL Nick Harris showed his versatility, playing two positions -- center and right tackle -- and now he's ready to focus his attention on getting ready for his Husky football career...

"Obviously our season didn't end the way we'd like it to, but as an individual player, I felt like I had a pretty good season," Harris told Dawgman.com. "I moved inside to play center this season and I was there for the first couple of games, but eventually my coaches moved me back out to right tackle because they wanted a guy who could get out and get to the second level and that's something I have always been able to do pretty well."

Harris committed to Washington back in July after taking an official visit to Washington and at that time, the Huskies were his only FBS offer.

"A lot of schools have come by and been in contact with me, but none have offered," Harris said. "A few of them were like 'if you weren't committed to Washington we'd offer', but I've told them all that I am a Husky and so they didn't offer.

"It was mainly schools like Boise State, Colorado, Cal and ASU, but there were a few more too."

Harris and his teammate, Luke Wattenberg, are scheduled to come up for their official visit the second weekend of January.

"I know for sure I am coming up on January 15th and I am pretty sure Luke is coming that same weekend too," Harris said. "I've had an in-home visit with coach (Chris) Strausser and I talk with him at least once a week. I also talk a lot with coach (Chris) Petersen. He's supposed to come down for his in-home visit with me after I come up for my visit."

Up until this year, Harris had wrestled and thrown the shot and discus for the track team, but this winter and spring he'll focus on getting ready for his career with the Dawgs.

"It's going to be tough, but I thought it was best for me to focus on my weight training and other stuff like that," Harris said. "I'm going to be in the gym a lot and I just thought it would be better to take the time off from those other sports to focus on getting ready for when I get up there (to Washington)."

We'll have more on Harris after his official visit next month.
