2017 Corona Del Mar (Newport, Ca.) QB Chase Garbers talks about his visit to UW and what the future may hold

2017 Corona Del Mar (Newport, Ca.) QB Chase Garbers spent the day on Montlake, taking in practice, meeting with the coaches and seeing what he program has to offer. He updated Dawgman.com on where things stand as far as his recruitment is concerned and when an offer from the Dawgs could be coming...

"The trip was amazing. I loved every bit of it," Garbers told Dawgman.com. "The atmosphere there is just special.

"I got there around 7 a.m. and was there for their quarterback meetings and then we headed out to practice. Even though it was in the 30s at the start of practice (at 8:30), the intensity was there and the guys were fired up to be out there on the field together.

"After that, I got a chance to sit down and talk some ball with coach (Jonathan) Smith and that was a lot of fun."

While he was meeting with the Husky offensive coordinator, the two talked about the timeline for when an offer may come.

"Coach Smith basically said they are close and that they would know in the next 24 hours on whether they can offer or not," Garbers said. "With (Tristan) Gebbia committing (to Nebraska), they showed me on their board that I was next in line, so we'll just have to see."

While he's in the Evergreen State, Garbers had scheduled a visit to see Washington State, so he headed east shortly after completing his trip to see Washington.

"We just got in," Garbers said. "I'll be going over to check out the campus and meet with coach (Mike) Leach tomorrow."

Last weekend, the Cougars got a commitment from Wilsonville (Or.) QB Connor Neville, but that hasn't dampened Garbers' interest.

"Anywhere you go you will have competition, so I am not really worried about another QB committing," Garbers said. "I'm still really interested in them and I want to see what they have to offer."

As a junior last year, Garbers led his team to a 9-3 record while completing nearly 69% of his passes for 2,715 yards, 33 touchdowns and three interceptions and rushing for 457 yards and seven scores.
