Polk talks about visit to Washington

With over 70,000 fans in attendance at last Saturday's upset victory over Boise State, the Huskies faithful impressed several of the recruits who were on hand to witness the drubbing of the Broncos. One prospect in the stands was Lincoln (Portland) WR Jordan Polk and his mother and he spoke with Dawgman.com recently about his trip and the recruiting process.

"It was a big crowd," Polk said on Monday night. "I heard that was one of the biggest crowds in a long time so I was happy to be there. The team played good. The coaching staff coached real well and it was just fun being up there."

Polk who is 5-9, 165 pounds and runs a 4.46 forty met with the coaches and then watched the team warm up before the game.

"I already knew everything (about Washington) – like them losing five wide receivers and all that," Polk said. "I just wanted to see how the program was run and just get to know all the coaches and to check it out and basically just have a fun experience.

"I don't know how to rate it, but I had a fun time and I'd have to rate it real high."

Polk and the Husky coaching staff talked about setting up an official visit and while nothing has been set in stone, the young man from northern Oregon said he's got an idea of when that might happen.

"We're probably going to do an official visit after the season because they can pay more attention to you," Polk said. "During the season they're worrying about winning games and getting to a bowl game so after the season there would be less distractions for them."

Polk currently holds offers from Arizona, Portland State and the Huskies, but the local schools have also been in contact as well.

"All the schools that have offered me I'm going to go on visits to those schools," Polk noted. "There's really no leaders and I'm just basically weighing all my options."

Lincoln lost last Friday to Tigard High School 32-21 and next up for the Cardinals is a powerful Southridge squad.

"We've got a lot of young guys on our team so we're just figuring it out how we're going to be as a team," Polk said.

We'll have more from the big play wideout and returner in the weeks ahead.
