Slye Commits to Washington

It's official. <b>Jordan Slye</b>, the 6-5, 200-pound athlete from Franklin High School in Seattle, Washington has verbally committed to play football for the University of Washington.

"Yeah, I committed last night to Rick," Slye told this afternoon. "He was excited. This morning I talked to all the other recruits, talking about coming to Washington. They said that they were going to take more trips, but they all seemed to like Washington a lot."

Slye joins, Matthew Fountaine, Jordan Reffett, Dan Milsten and Maurice Murray as players that have verbally committed to the Huskies.

"It was just great," of the overall feeling of his visit. "We got an academic tour, talked to the trainers...we just did it all, basically."

Jordan's host was Ty Eriks. "Ty was great," Slye said. "We talked about a lot of things, mostly about the transition from going to college from the inner city, stuff like that."

And the highlights? "Well, going to Jillians and playing video games and pool was a lot of fun," Jordan said. But the real highlight came this morning. "I'd say getting up and going to Rick's house this morning was the best. We just ate breakfast, hung out and talked."

Slye got along with all the recruits over the weekend. "Shelton (Sampson) was great," Slye said. "I really like him. He's down to earth." Ryan Cole and Nathan Rhodes were two others Jordan mentioned by name. "I really liked everybody, really."

Jordan will come to Washington as an athlete. "They've talked to me about quarterback, receiver and safety," he said. He currently runs a 4.5 40 and has a recent squat of 425 pounds. Top Stories
