Justice Back from Visit

<b>Winston Justice</b>, a 6-6, 295-pound offensive lineman from Long Beach, California just returned from his official visit to the <b>University of Washington</b>. While he's a long ways a way from committing to any school, the Huskies impressed him.

"Seattle was a lot nicer than I expected, nicer than LA," Justice told Dawgman.com. "We had a chance to go out and see the town, check out places like the Space Needle. It a very scenic area."

While the scenery impressed Justice, it was the practices and overall feel for the football program that caught Winston's attention. "The practices were well organized and intense," he said. "I really liked watching them. The players seem to be a lot more dedicated and close-knit than at the practices I've seen at UCLA and USC. The players at Washington just seem to be a lot more committed." He also mentioned how intense the OL Coach, Brent Myers, was. "I really like how he coaches," Winston said.

Another person that impressed Justice was strength and conditioning coach Bill Gillespie, who he spent some time talking to. Winston's host was none other than Khalif Barnes. "He's one cool dude," Justice said. "I kind of got the impression that they want me to redshirt if I went there, which is OK. I'd like to play as early as possible, and seeing what Khalif's been able to do as a redshirt freshman, I know I would get a chance at Washington."

Winston's father Gary accompanied him on the visit. "My Dad enjoyed himself," Justice said. "He really liked the academic aspect of things. They have a lot of support for the players there."

In short, Winston had fun. "It was a lot better trip than I expected it to be. It rained, but after talking to the players they just said that it's something you get used to."

Justice will be visiting Oregon on January 4th, UCLA on January 11th and is still in the process of setting up his visit with USC.
