Trip Report: Ronnie Fouch

One of the best things about the 2007 recruiting class for the Huskies is that the quarterback they have committed will be able to enroll in spring so he can be on campus for extra work. Redlands East Valley QB Ronnie Fouch was on campus this weekend for his official visit and he said his time on campus just made him realize he made the right decision.

"I told everybody that I'm 100-percent committed to Washington so no one is really recruiting me anymore," Fouch told "I've been up there twice before so this was mainly about hanging out with the players and making sure I made the right decision and I know that I did.

"Hanging out with Jake (Locker) was a blast. He was my host and we just hung out a lot and spent some time with the other recruits and players. It was a lot of fun."

Fouch, who is not a fan of heights, said he was a bit spooked by his trip to the top of the Space Needle.

"I'm terrified of heights so when we went up there my stomach felt all weird," Fouch said with a laugh. "Then when I figured out it was rotating, that was pretty nuts. I didn't know they could do that, but eventually I just relaxed and had a good time."

Another highlight for Fouch was his "chalk-talk" with offensive coordinator Tim Lappano.

"We watched a lot of film on Saturday and that was great," Fouch said. "I got to see their offense a little bit and see what I'll be learning when I get here."

Fouch said he also was in the ear of a certain receiver who committed as well.

"I talked to (Anthony Boyles) a little bit, but not too much," Fouch said. "He's really funny and a great guy to be around. We talked to him a little bit, but more than anything we all committed to Washington because we want to win."

Fouch will now turn his sights to basketball and his school-work as he tries to qualify to graduate at the end of January.

"Basically, the next two months are about basketball and working out and throwing and getting my classes finished so I can be up there in spring," Fouch said. "If I don't get that done then I can't go up in the spring which is what I want to do."

We'll have more from Fouch after he signs his letter of intent.
