Huskies Right In The Mix With Jaramillo

2018 Lake Oswego (Or.) OL Dawson Jaramillo is starting to turn into a national recruit with his latest offer coming from an ACC school. caught up with the talented prospect recently and he updated us on where things stand...

Jaramillo recently got offered by Virginia.

"Coach (Garett) Tujague texted me and then I called him," Jaramillo recalled. "He gave me his pitch and said that his main emphasis as a coach was family and how the community and school there are a tight-knit group and that he wanted to expand his recruiting base and that meant he was offering me a scholarship.

"It's pretty cool to get the offer. I am hoping that it will possibly bring in some more ACC offers or some offers from some Mid-West schools."

The offer from the Cavaliers is Jaramillo's fifth, joining the offers he already had from CalOregonOregon State and Washington.

The Huskies were actually one of the four-star prospect's first offers and he recently spent some time on the phone with Husky offensive line coach Chris Strausser.

"We had a good conversation," Jaramillo said. "He's a good coach and I like him a lot. We just caught up mainly, but they want me to come up for spring ball in April, so I'm just going to look at which Saturday works best for me and I'll plan to go up for one of their practices and to meet with the coaches."

In addition to his pending visit to Montlake, Jaramillo said he's headed to Los Angeles to take part in the Under Armour All-American Camp and then plans visits to see UCLA and USC.

"I've been talking with USC quite a bit and this will be a good chance to get down there and meet with them," Jaramillo said. 

As a junior this past season, Jaramillo held down the left tackle spot for Lake Oswego and said he felt like he improved from his sophomore season.

"I felt like I played pretty well, but you can always get better and improve," Jaramillo said. "Between my (left) guard and me, I think we gave up just one sack on the season, so that feels like a pretty big accomplishment because some of the teams we played -- West Linn, Sherwood and Newberg -- had some really fast and strong pass rushers."

We'll have more on Jaramillo in the coming weeks as he gets closer to setting up his visit to Montlake and we will update news on him as it happens. Top Stories
