Hawaiian DE reaffirms commitment

Daniel Te'o Nesheim reconfirmed his verbal commitment to Washington Saturday, bringing the number of Husky commitments to nine. The DE/OL prospect from Hawaii Prep Academy had a choice between his final two colleges - Washington and Oregon - but in the end it ended up not being a choice at all.

"I'm going to Washington," he told Scout.com Saturday. "Oregon asked me to greyshirt, and I didn't want to greyshirt. I want to come in with everybody else. I don't want to wait and be sitting here at home, when I could be going to school and learning."

Nesheim told the Washington coaches a couple of days ago. "(Chris) Tormey was happy," Daniel said. So was (Coach Randy) Hart."

Nesheim is projected as a defensive end, but he gave us his thoughts about where he might like to play in college. "I like o-line a little better than d-line, but wherever they want to use me I'll play there. I don't care," he said. He talked to both Hart and new offensive line coach Mike Denbrock on his official visit. "You've always got a chance to do your job on the offensive line, like pancaking the guy. On defense, you don't always have that chance," added Nesheim.

Daniel also talked excitedly about the news of both E.J. Savannah and J.R. Hasty committing to the Huskies Friday night. "I took my official visit to Oregon with both of those guys. They are cool," he said.
