Yriarte talks about visit to Seattle

The Huskies have been traveling up and down the I-5 corridor in California looking for offensive linemen and they may have found a good one in Paraclete OL Cory Yriarte. He and his parents made trip to Seattle to watch the Huskies during spring practice and he came away impressed with his visit.

"It was a great visit," Yriarte told Dawgman.com. "First thing we did was we met with coach (Chris) Tormey and he introduced us to all the coaches on the floor that were there. Then we toured the whole campus. That is a big campus they have there, but it's beautiful.

"After we got done with the tour we went and watched practice. Probably the coolest thing of the whole visit was when we were standing on the sidelines watching the players warm up and coach (Tyrone) Willingham came over and started talking to us. He stayed for 15 minutes and it was just really special because I had never talked to him before and I've always wanted to meet him and talk to him."

Yriarte (pronounced why-Are-tee) took in the Scout All-American Combine in Los Angeles this past weekend and posted solid numbers while facing some talented players in the one-on-ones.

Next up for the versatile player from the high desert is the Stanford Nike Combine this weekend and several team camps during June and July.

"I'm going to go to the USC, Colorado, Cal and Washington camps for at least one day each," Yriarte said. "I'm looking forward to the Washington camp because it's full pads and I'll be able to show the coaches what I can do."

Right now Yriarte said the Buffaloes are recruiting him the hardest and that head coach Dan Hawkins has been talking to him more now that the evaluation period has gotten under way.

Yriarte also mentioned he plans to major in business in college and that one school seemed to have a leg up in that department.

"When we took our trips to Washington, Washington State, Colorado and Cal, we asked each place about their business program," Yriarte said. "Washington's was the best and that is one factor that will figure in to where I decide to go."

Yriarte said he plans to take his visits before he commits to a school. He recently scored a 1590 on the SAT and reports a 2.9 core GPA.
