2017 Roseville (Ca.) TE Jimmy Jaggers recaps his trip to Seattle and some future plans on the horizon

This weekend, 2017 Roseville (Ca.) TE Jimmy Jaggers was in Seattle to check out the University of Washington with his family and he said his trip just confirmed what he already knew...

"(The trip) just confirmed my interest," Jaggers said as he waited for his return flight to California at Sea-Tac International Airport. "I think the area, the scheme and the guys (at Washington) are just great.

"My parents liked it a lot. They love the area. My mom is a big fan of the short trip and my stepfather is a fan of weather and the area."

While he was on campus, Jaggers and his parents met with tight ends coach Jordan Paopao and head coach Chris Petersen.

"We sat down with (Paopao) and we just talked ball," Jaggers noted. "We talked about where I fit in the offense and how they use tight ends and what it's like being a tight end in their offense.

"He just said I'd play a traditional 'Y' like (Drew) Sample does but at the same time be a threat in the passing game and things like that. "I also got a chance to talk with coach Petersen. It was a great conversation and I really feel comfortable with him.

"He just talked a lot about how much he feels I fit in the program and locker room and then just getting to know one another was a good thing for me."

In addition to his offer from the Dawgs, Jaggers also holds full rides from the likes of Arizona State, Tennessee, Michigan, Colorado, UCLA, Utah, Washington State, BYU, Louisville, Northwestern and Vanderbilt and two new schools have started to pick things up with him as well.

"Nebraska and LSU are two new ones for me and I'm thinking about visiting both of those schools in the spring or summer, but with the cost of things and with other schools already offering, an offer from them would definitely make me want to visit, so we'll have to see what happens," Jaggers said.

The talented senior-to-be had hoped to make a decision before his senior season, but he's thinking now that it will likely end up being in the fall after he's able to take some official visits.

He's eligible to graduate early and while he has yet to firm up plans to do that, he said he's "90% sure" he will gruate early so he's able to enroll in time to participate in spring football practices wherever he winds up signing.
