"I told the coaches I wanted to go to Washington," Wells told Dawgman.com. "The coaches were pretty happy about that. Coach (Trent) Miles and Steve Wilks visited me. They were happy that they can get me in there early so I can practice during spring ball and I have all summer to learn their defense."
Wells was a full-qualifier out of Bonita High School in La Verne, California but received only a little interest from Nevada and an NAIA school.
He played for "Mt. SAC" this past season and posted modest stats of 18 tackles, 2 interceptions and 1 blocked kick.
"It went pretty decent," Wells said. "(The coaching staff) tried to switch me around but they ended up keeping me at safety. I did pretty well, but I still need to improve."
Miles has been the principle recruiter for Wells and the young man from southern California said the Huskies running back's coach believes in the type of player that Wells is.
"They've been talking about recruiting me as a safety," the 6-2, 200-pounder said. "They came to my house for a visit and I'm supposed to go out there this weekend (January 6th). He says he likes what the coaches at Mt. SAC have to say about me. He's told the other coaches I'm a humble person and that I will be a good student of the game."
Wells ran track in high school, posting a 21.2 200 meter time and according to sources is an excellent cover safety who likes to hit.
"I'm going tolearn, be a good student of the game and be a hard worker," Wells said in conclusion.
He will arrive on campus for spring quarter and will have four years to play three once he arrives.
