2017 Westlake (Austin, Tx.) LB Levi Jones added an offer from Washington recently and he said the Huskies are likely to get a visit soon

Westlake (Austin, Tx.) LB Levi Jones is one of the elite outside linebackers in the country this recruiting cycle and he's got the offers to prove it. Washington recently joined the fray for the talented prospect and he updated Dawgman.com on where the Huskies stand with him...

"Washington's offer is a big one for me," Jones told Dawgman.com. "I have a lot of great offers already and Washington was a school I was hoping would offer and when it came in, that was big for me."

Washington offer joined schools like USC, LSU, Oklahoma, Baylor, Texas, Texas A&M and Florida State among others. With all of those top 25 programs after him, why is he so interested in the Huskies?

"All of my life, I've wanted to play in the Pac 12 or the SEC," Jones admitted. "Washington is a rising program in the Pac 12 and I really like the defense they run there. It's the best defense in the conference and they fly around and they are aggressive. I love that.

"I also have a great relationship with coach 'K' (defensive coordinator Pete Kwiatkowski). He's such a good guy and we've formed a really strong relationship so far. 

"He checks in on me and we stay in touch a lot and he really wants me to come up and see Seattle and the program for myself."

As far as when he is planning to visit the Emerald City, Jones is unsure when it will happen, but he said it definitely will happen.

"We haven't set a date yet, but I definitely am planning to visit there," Jones noted. "I've never been to Seattle before, so it will be a new experience for me and I love new experiences."

The schools that Jones has already visited include USC, UCLA, LSU, Texas, Arizona and East Carolina.

"My brother (Isaiah Jones) is a receiver at ECU, so I went out there to visit him and saw the school there," Jones said. "UCLA and USC were good visits. I really liked it out there.

"Of course I've gone to see Texas. They are really close and LSU is a great program and they are in the SEC. 

"Arizona is also a good program and I liked spending time there with the coaches and seeing the facilities and stuff."

Jones is a versatile player who totaled a team-leading 116 tackles to go along with six sacks and four pass breakups on a team that won the 6A State Championship last season.

"I played outside linebacker, but I can play wherever you want me to play," the 6'2", 215-pounder said. "I just love to hit and be physical. I could even play defensive end if that's where my team needs me to play. 

"I will do whatever it takes to help my team. I don't see myself as a guy who is locked into one position. I can play anything you need me to play."

Jones said he hasn't set a timeline for when he'd like to commit to a school, but he hopes to take his official visits before he makes his decision.
