St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Ca.) S Jaiden Woodbey talks about his offer from Washington and his timeline for a decision

After their second satellite camp of the week, Washington made an offer to one of the top 2018 safety prospects on the West Coast...

"Washington offered me after their camp up at University of Redlands," Woodbey told "Unfortunately, I had to leave a little bit early because my dad had to get to work, but it was really good to get coached up by them, especially coach (Jimmy) Lake.

"I really liked the way he coached me and the other players up. He's a teach and a motivator, but he's also really stern and he expects a lot from his players. 

"They are definitely coaches I could see myself playing for in the future."

The Huskies are Woodbey's 16th offer, joining schools like UCLA, USC, Tennessee, Florida, LSU, Alabama, Notre Dame and Oklahoma among others.

Even though other schools have gotten in the mix much earlier than the Washington, they definitely made an impression him and he will be heading north next week to see Washington for himself.

"I'm looking forward to going up there," Woodbey noted. "It'll give me more of a chance to really get to know the coaches better and also see the facilities and the campus.

"I know a few of the guys that are going there -- Kamari PleasantSean McGrewKeith Taylor and Terrell Bynum -- so that's definitely something that is pretty cool about the possibility of playing there."

As far as when he wants to make a decision, Woodbey was pretty resolute.

"I want to decide before my birthday in January (the 20th), so I will try and get out and see a bunch of different schools to see what they have to offer," Woodbey said. "I'm looking for a school where I can see myself living after I am done with football, a school that has my degree (Business) and then also how I feel about my relationship with the coaches and players."
