Wesson has Huskies high on his list

The Washington Huskies have been searching all over for talented defensive backs this year and Dominguez (Compton, CA) CB Manoah Wesson is a player that's landed squarely on their radar this summer. Dawgman.com recently caught up with the playmaking defender and he talked about recruiting and the possibility he could make an early decision.

"I like Washington a lot," Wesson told Dawgman.com recently. "They have been contacting me for the past few months and coach (Trent) Miles really is a good guy and a good coach.

"My teammate, Brandon Johnson, signed with them and he's been up there for a month and he loves it and told me it's a great school and a great atmosphere up there."

Wesson didn't play in 2006 because of a hamstring injury, but started as a freshman in 2004 and a sophomore in 2005.

"Last year was kind of frustrating, but I'm all healed up and ready to go now," Wesson said. "I got my speed back and I'm really looking forward to showing schools what I can do out on the field this fall."

As a sophomore, Wesson picked off three passes and returned two of them for touchdowns and teams have taken notice of his big play ability.

"Washington and Utah are my two offers right now," Wesson said. "Arizona, Arizona State, Ole Miss, Cal, LSU and Fresno State are all recruiting me pretty hard too."

Wesson had hoped to make it up to Seattle this weekend for Washington's "Prospect Day" but said he hoped to set up an official visit in the very near future.

"I didn't get to go up because things sorta fell through," Wesson said. "They are on top right now, but I want to take some visits to make sure what school fits me best.

"I need to call coach Miles to set up a visit and then I'll probably visit Utah too, but I'm not sure on that one. I know Washington will be one of my visits though."

We'll have more from Wesson in the future, once his season gets underway.
