Reffett can't wait

Jordan Reffett, the 6-6, 250-pound defensive end from Moses Lake, Washington isn't in the mood to wait. In fact, Jordan's taking extra measures this winter in an attempt to get himself ready for next year when he enrolls at the University of Washington.

"I talk to Coach Hart all the time," Reffett told today. "I've been lifting during the basketball season, which is something new for me. Usually I wouldn't do it because you can get pretty sore after working out, but I'm making the sacrifice this year so that I can get bigger and stronger. I can't work out with the team until the summer because I'll still be in high school but I'm going to get the playbook and also a video that will show me the different techniques so I know what I'm getting myself into. I'm definitely going to go up to Seattle to see some of the practices this spring and the spring game. I can't wait. I want to get up there right now!"

Jordan said that his commitment to Washington is rock solid and he hasn't really heard much from other schools since he made his pledge to the Dawgs back in October. "I got things from the Oregon schools and Washington State, but they know I'm a die-hard Dawg so they just wished me good luck and told me that they wished I was going to play with them. But I made it clear. I'm ready to go to Seattle and be a bad man for the next 4 or 5 years."

Reffett is playing hoops for the Chiefs. "We had a game last night and another one tonight," he said. "I had 23 points and 12 rebounds last night and I'm averaging 17 points and 10 boards a game. We are 6-4, which is tied for 3rd right now. We're not happy about that and we're working our butts off to get better." Jordan normally plays the 4 or 5 spot, depending on who they have in the game.

Anything else for Husky fans Jordan? "Well, I'm in the best shape of my life right now," he said. "Coach Myers is supposed to come by tomorrow night, so that will be nice. I can't wait to get to Washington."
