"It was a fun experience to go through," Bomar told Dawgman.com today. "I liked how the coaching staff greeted themselves to my dad, brother, and me. Also, how Rick Neuheisel knew who I was by face, and he seemed very concerned to talk to me. I also liked the tour of the school even though I have already had like 3 total (tours) now. Lastly, I liked how I got to see the other top athletes they are recruiting and being able to talk to them about the exciting and upcoming season."
There was good reason for Rick's sense of urgency. He had some business to
attend to with Tahj. "They also verbally offered me," he said. "Today (Monday)
Coach Hart came to the high school to talk to the coaches about me, etc.. but due
to NCAA regulations he could not say anything to me, but "hi"."
Bomar relayed his conversation with Neuheisel on Saturday. "Actually it was kind
of funny," he said. "I was talking with the defensive line coach, Coach (Randy)
Hart. Then Coach Neuheisel comes over and says, 'Hey, do you want to be a Dawg?', and
I said 'Yes', and he said, 'Good. It's a done deal. I'll be stopping by your school
on Monday.' I guess he had a talk with my Coach, Coach (Tom) Ingles yesterday
and I guess Coach Neuheisel said how impressed he was with me."
So does that mean Tahj verbally committed to Neuheisel? "You could say that,"
he said. "But since it's only a verbal commitment, I still have other schools I want
to check out. Later this month Arizona, Oregon State, and Oregon will be
coming to evaluate me. Last but not least I will be attending the Nike
Combine and Oregon Team Camp in June."
Tahj had this to say in closing about his day at Washington. "The experience at
the UW was a keeper. I still have some other schools to evaluate, but Washington
is definitely number one."
