Tolar talks about Junior Day

Ryan Tolar is a 6-6, 320-pound offensive lineman from Pasco, Washington, and recently he went to Seattle with his mother to attend Washington's junior day for football. It coincided with the Arizona-Washington basketball game, but it wasn't just Hec Ed that got his juices flowing.

"It was fun. We went to the (Husky) stadium and that stadium is huge," Ryan told In fact, Ryan and his mother went up a day early to make sure they got all the face time they needed with the new Washington coaching staff.

"We showed up Friday, so we were able to go in and talk with the coaches," he said. "I spoke with Coach Denbrock for a while and then Coach Hart for a while. We just talked."

So what's next on Tolar's spring football agenda? "Next week I'm going down to Oregon and I'm going to WSU for a spring practice and junior day," he said. With these visits, Ryan is hoping to rack up some more scholarship offers. Nebraska and Washington State are the first two to offer the two-time all-Big-9 performer.

Ryan is really open to the recruiting process and any twists or turns that it might provide. He's seen up close how former teammates Leon Jackson (Nebraska) and Tony Coburn (Eastern Washington) handled their recruitment, and is taking things day by day. "Any school that is recruiting me could be my number-one school, so I'll wait out the whole process and take all five of my visits and go from there," he said.
