St. Francis (Mountain View, Ca.) ATH Cyrus Habibi-Likio discusses his visit to Montlake and where things stand on the recruiting front

2017 St. Francis (Mountain View, Ca.) ATH Cyrus Habibi-Likio was on hand for Washington's second spring practice and he was blown away by what he saw...

"It was amazing," Habibi-Likio told "It felt right when I walked in. There is a great sense of family, which is very important to me. I thought the facilities were beautiful, but most importantly the practice was amazing. They weren't even in pads and the intensity was crazy.

"Everyone was very friendly and very high class."

Getting back the facilities and the campus, Habibi-Likio and his family got a tour of both.

"They are definitely some of the nicest facilities I've ever seen," Habibi-Likio noted. "The campus was beautiful. I really enjoyed the scenery and views you had from the campus. I love their stadium and locker room. The weight room is legit."

While he walked away from his visit without an offer, Habibi-Likio still feels very confident in Washington's interest in what he can do on the football field.

"I got a chance to sit down and talk with coach (Keith) Bhonapha and coach (Ikaika) Malloe," Habibi-Likio said. "They like me as an athlete because I can play linebacker or safety or running back. I can also fit in at wide receiver because I can catch the ball pretty well too.

"We talked about the scholarships. They don't have many left, but they told me to leave my door open because they are (leaving it open too). I have faith and will just keep waiting.

"I'm not committing anytime soon."

With his visit to Montlake complete, Habibi-Likio said he plans to head to Pullman today to meet with the Washington State coaches and he has already visited San Jose State and California.

Habibi-Likio totaled over 1,400 yards and 17 touchdowns as a tailback for the Lancers while also hauling in 12 receptions for 166 yards and two scores on offense and he racked up nine tackles in part time duty on the defensive side of the ball. will have more on Habibi-Likio in the coming weeks and months and we will update news on him as it happens.
