Getting To Know You - Camilo Eifler

With the the 2016 class now enrolled and currently deep into the media blackout abyss until they set foot on the field, we continue our series where we get to know the players a little better with questions not necessarily focused to just the football field...

Height and Weight? - "Actually I just measured and weighed myself today -- 6'2", 220."
What have you been up to this offseason? - "One of my high school coaches actually has a training place and I have been working with him since the end of my season. Explosion work, footwork drills, lifting, core stuff, I've been working on everything."
How many offers did you have? - "It was like 18 or 20. Something like that."
Besides Washington, what other schools were after you really hard? - "Northwestern, Michigan, Cal, UCLA and Texas A&M were the ones that I can think of that were after me the hardest."
If not Washington, then what school would you have chosen? - "I'd say it would probably have been Michigan or UCLA or possibly Cal."
Why did you choose Washington? - "It was just everything. From the staff, to the facilities, to the overall program, to the players, to the academics. I mean, Washington is a top notch academic institution and that was important to me. Mostly, it just felt like the right place for me to maximize my football potential while also getting me ready for life after football. Another big thing for me was Kevin King being there. You can go to some schools and there are random guys from California there, but with Kevin, he's from the same school and same neighborhood as I am, so that comfort level was also great."
What did you enjoy about the recruiting process? - "I really enjoyed seeing all of the schools and meeting all of these legendary coaches. I got to see all of these schools I would never have thought I would have a chance to play for and they were after me. It was fun for a while."
What did you hate about the recruiting process? - "I'd say the biggest thing for me will be the pressure you feel constantly. You have all of these reporters calling and asking where you're going to go, then the coaches ask where you're going to go, then your friends and teachers ask the same question. It's like 'I'm not sure yet!' That was tough, but it's just a part of the process."
Funny story/anecdote from the recruiting process? - "I'd say one of the funniest things that happened to me was coach Pete (Chris Petersen), when he came to do my in-home visit, he and I were talking and he found my skateboard and he pulled it out and started doing tricks and moves with it. He's just a professional guy and he's serious a lot, but he has a lighter side too and it was fun watching him take my skateboard out and start doing an 'ollie'. It was pretty funny."
What are you going to miss when you enroll at UW? - "In-and-Out Burger. I used to love hanging out with my friends and it's like midnight and we're like, let's go to In-and-Out. We had a lot of good times there and the burgers are great. I'm also going to miss my homies. I have some great friends here, but I gotta do what I gotta do and also my family, but they'll be up for games and stuff."
Assuming you have talked with the UW staff, what have they said about where you'll play once you get to UW? - "They said I could play the WIL or the SAM. They haven't really figured that out yet, but they know the want me as an outside linebacker."
What kind of car do you drive? - "A Jett, an old, old VW Jetta."
What's your favorite movie? - "Man that's tough. I'll go with Friday, Bad Boys and a classic one -- The Lion King."
What's your favorite CD/music on your ipod right now? - "The one I have on repeat right now is 'Still Brazy" by YG."
What's your favorite kind of food? - "I love tacos. Either steak or chicken, I don't care which kind. I love both of them and could eat them all the time."
