"Washington offered me last week," Lolohea told Dawgman.com recently. "Coach 'K' (Pete Kwiatkowski) is the coach that has been recruiting me and he and I talked and he said I had an offer from them.
"I was really shocked honestly. I was really surprised. It's a great honor to get an offer from them."
Washington became the eighth school to offer Lolohea, who totaled 68 tackles and three sacks as a junior last season.
"I played mostly linebacker last season, so I didn't put up much in the way of sacks, but I really like rushing the quarterback," Lolohea said. "I have offers from Washington and also Air Force, Colorado, Nevada Wolf, Oregon State, Utah, Utah State and Washington State and my coaches said that BYU and Boise State are starting to get involved a lot more and could be close to offering.
"Most of the schools want me as a linebacker. Washington definitely wants me as a middle linebacker in their system."
Lolohea said he's hoping to visit a couple of schools this summer, but he's unsure of when those might happen.
"I definitely would like to get up (to Seattle) to check out Washington, but I need to work it out with my parents on when we can make it up," Lolohea noted. "I don't know that much about Washington, but I am starting to get to know more about it and a trip up there to check things out wold be great because I could meet all of the coaches and see the facilities and also see what it's like up there.
"I also want to check out a couple of other schools, maybe BYU and Boise State, but we haven't really set anything up yet.
"I did visit Utah State for their Junior Day and that was cool. I liked meeting the coaches and seeing the facilities there."
As far as when he hopes to make a decision, Lolohea said he's likely to wait and take his time.
"I'm pretty sure I will wait to take my official visits," Lolohea said. "I want to check out as many schools as I can and I feel like seeing them on an official visit is a good thing to wait and do."
Lolohea is LDS and said he's planning to take his mission shortly after graduating next spring, so he won't enroll at the school he chooses until he returns in 2019.
