UW commit reinforces decision

For the longest time, Spokane (Wash.) Ferris DT Cameron Elisara knew he was going to make an early college decision. Now that he has made that decision - to Washington - has there been second-guessing? Has he been thinking about still taking some visits to reinforce his thinking? Well, he did take one visit this weekend, and that's all he needed.

"I had a great time," Elisara said of his junior day experience at Washington Saturday. "It just reassured me that I made the right decision. But I've always been pretty solid. I know I'm at the right place." He'll only be taking one official visit, to Washington most likely once his senior season is complete.

Elisara, Ryan Tolar, Steve Schilling and James Montgomery met up on Friday in Seattle. "It felt like four teammates hanging out," he said. "I don't know where he (Schilling) is going to go, but we tried to make him feel comfortable."

And what about Saturday's junior day? "I always see new things," Elisara said of his time at Montlake. "Getting to go on the roof at Husky Stadium is something that doesn't happen for most people.

"I think everybody had a really good time. At the very least, whatever negatives there could have been for any of the recruits definitely turned into positives."

The 6-foot-3, 275-pound defensive tackle is now ready to tackle - literally - the football season ahead of him. He committed early so he could then commit his full efforts toward his Saxon teammates. "I'm in really good shape right now, it's not even a question," he said when asked about his leg, the one that took him out of his junior season after only 5 games. "I'm not worried about it at all.

"I can't wait until the season starts. I've got some unfinished business out there and hopefully by the end of the season I'll have people talking about me as the best d-tackle in the nation."

With 'unfinished business' being Elisara's mantra, has he set any personal goals for the season? "My only goal is to make every play," he said. "And if I can't make a play I'm going to make sure I do what I can so that someone else can make the play."
