Kearse enjoys trip to Husky practice

The Washington Huskies are desperate for a big-play wide receiver and the top one in the state this year is likely to be Lakes WR Jermaine Kearse. The young man from the southend came to Montlake this afternoon to take in the first day of spring practices at Husky Stadium and he came away impressed with what he saw.

"It was a good practice," Kearse told "I met with coach (Tyrone) Willingham and coach (Charlie) Baggett who would be my position coach if I commit there and they talked to me for a while."

Kearse was also accompanied by his teammate and arguably the best football prospect in the state this year -- DE/TE Kavario Middleton.

"Yeah, me and Kavario went up to check things out," Kearse said. "It was a lot of fun. The players looked like they were having a lot of fun out there and it's just fun watching them go at it."

Kears sports two offers -- one from both Washington and Washington State -- and he said he's just going to take his time.

"I'm not in a hurry to make a decision," Kearse said. "I have a lot of time and I still want to go to camps and see what else may come up."

Kearse has been offered by the Huskies as a wide receiver and the Cougars have offered him as a safety.

Kearse mentioned he plans to attend several more practices before the spring game on April 28th, which he also plans to attend.
