"I had 10 tackles and one forced fumble against Allen Hancock in our first game, and in our second game against Santa Monica (Brandon Lockhart's college), I had two and a half sacks and two tackles. We won, 42-10," said Solomona.
One college coach that has taken a keen interest in Solomona's development is Washington linebackers coach Tom Williams. "I talk to Coach Williams a lot," Solomona said. "It's like I'm already talking to my future coach, it's so easy to talk to him."
"I spoke with Rick Neuheisel last week. I love him. He's one of the coolest people I've ever met, he talks about life, not just football."
Solomona initially committed to the Huskies two years ago, and has been working
hard towards getting his AA. Once he receives that, he can enroll in a D1 school and have three years to play two. "I'm doing really well in school," Chris said. "I've never been this focused before when it came to classes and I don't have a girlfriend anymore, so that's really helping a lot too (laughs)."
Solomona also feels like he's stepped it up on the gridiron as well. "I think I'm a lot better than before, both physically and mentally," he said. "I'm a lot smarter out
there and I'm more aggressive. I'm quicker too. I think I've really stepped it up."
Solomona estimates that he is '85-90 percent' committed to the Huskies. "I still want to
take trips so that I know I'm making the right decision," he said.
Those trips include Arizona on December 2nd, Kansas State, Colorado, and Washington. "Washington will definitely be my last trip that I take," said Solomona.
"Every team is telling me that I can come right in and play. I know Washington's depth chart well, so I know what's going on there."
He now benches 375 pounds and at 280 pounds runs a 4.83 40. He hopes to play defensive end at the next level but plays inside for El Camino as needed.
"Unless I visit Washington and find that the spirit, camaraderie, and unity are different than I remember, I'm going to go there.
"As of now, I'm going to Washington."
