"I committed," Walker told Dawgman.com today. "It was probably the hardest decision I've ever had to make. UCLA has the weather and both schools and football programs are great, but I'm going to Washington because of Coach Neuheisel and his staff. They are the main reason I'm going there. They are awesome."
Clay started to get the feeling during the first football practice on Friday. "It was a great feeling,
watching those guys get after it," he said. "I really wanted to go out there and strap it on. They
all looked like they were having a great time."
Walker's host was Casey Paus. "It was a little different having him host me, he came with
a different perspective on things," Walker said. "Since his brother goes there, he was able to talk
about the UCLA and the Washington perspective, which was nice. And he's a great guy too."
Brent Myers had an opportunity to talk to his new charge one-on-one. "Both Coach Myers and
Coach Weber are great coaches and have a very similar style," Clay said. "They are both heavy into
technique and footwork and both are fiery guys. It was obvious that Coach Myers doesn't cut his
guys a lot of slack. He works hard to motivate them."
Walker mentioned Husky Stadium, the facilities and the constant eating as highlights of the trip. "I'm
just looking forward now to taking some time to relax and enjoy the holidays," Walker said.
Asked if he expects UCLA to come on strong to woo him, Clay's answer was short and sweet. "I'm
committed, right? It's over."
