Spring game update - Kyle Trew

Kyle Trew is a 6-2, 215-pound running back/safety prospect from Edmonds (Wash.) Edmonds-Woodway, and while Kyle has been taking a bit of a break from football this spring, it didn't stop him from making the short trip south to Montlake to see Washington's spring game.

"It was pretty cool," Trew told Dawgman.com. "We took a tour of the campus. I had never seen the campus before. I'd seen Husky Stadium and the facilities before, but I hadn't seen classrooms or anything like that. It was nice. Then we ate some barbeque and I talked to Craig (Chambers) for a bit."

Kyle spent most of his time with his teammate Casey Tyler and Meadowdale's Chris Rohrbach.

Trew enjoyed what he saw. "I watched the game on the sideline for a bit," he said. "It was cool standing there with all the other football players. It's the first time I have seen them this spring because I'm doing track. They really went after it. They have some big linemen (laughs). I was one of the smallest guys on the sidelines."

While some recruits spent time watching their specific position, Kyle just soaked in the atmosphere and enjoyed that day. "I just had fun watching them," he said. "I just wanted to see how they played and handled things. They were very serious about things, which I liked. Even though it was just a scrimmage there were some big hits and the players looked like they were taking things seriously."

Trew made sure he got some face time with the coaches before he left. "I talked to Coach Neuheisel, Coach Gilbertson and Coach Hart," he said. "They didn't have a lot of time to talk. They just wanted to see how we were doing, make sure to keep our grades up."

It wasn't the only time Kyle has seen the Husky coaches lately. "Washington and Washington State came by yesterday to look at our grades," said Trew. "Washington sent me a hand-written letter. It was from Coach Neuheisel. I also got one from Portland State. It was pretty neat to get it. I've never gotten something like that before." He has no offers yet.

Kyle is still planning on attending Husky camp, the Oregon Nike camp and Edmonds-Woodway's team camp at Eastern Washington. In track this spring, Trew is running the 100, 200, and 4x100 events. His spring bests in the 100 and 200 are 11.5 and 23.8, respectively.
