"Man that place is big!" Bandel told Dawgman.com today. "I committed to him at his house. He was excited and happy, a lot more so than I thought he would be. He was jumping around."
Ben said that he doesn't plan on taking any more visits.
Before leaving to visit Seattle, he said that there was a very good chance he would commit, so this
welcome news isn't much of a surprise. What made the difference? "To be honest, I was pretty
surprised at how nice it was up there," he said, apparently not that concerned about the rain. "I just
got a chance to meet the players and coaches and like them a lot. And I was really impressed on the
academic support they give to the student-athletes there."
Ben really enjoyed the two practices he was able to attend. "The practices were run in a very smooth
manner," he said. "I thought the coaches did a great job." He also had a one-on-one visit with
Keith Gilbertson, the Washington tight ends coach and offensive coordinator. "He just told me about
what to expect at the position and how they really needed some tight ends to come in this year."
Bandel's host was Joe Toledo. "Joe's a great guy," Ben said. "I thought the coaches did a great
job of setting me up with Joe and getting a chance to talk to the other tight ends. That was cool."
He mentioned checking out the facilities as one of the big highlights of his visit.
