Huskies near top of Floyd's list

One prospect that has just started to come onto the Washington radar of late is Crenshaw ATH Clint Floyd. He's been hearing from the Huskies for a while, but things have begun to heat up of late and the Dawgs are close to offering the talented playmaker. caught up with the elusive prospect recently and he talked about recruiting and how his season has progressed so far...

"It's been tough so far this year," Floyd told recently. "We're 1-3, but we've been playing hard and we won last week so it should start to pick up."

Last week in Crenshaw's 44-7 pasting of Roosevelt, Floyd had a big night -- passing for over 200 yards and two touchdown, running for 200 yards and two more scores and on defense he had an interception return for a touchdown to go along with six tackles.

"It's cool playing quarterback because I like having the ball in my hands," Floyd said. "I know I'm going to be a receiver or a DB in college, but here it's just about getting wins and doing the best we can."

Floyd has a good frame (5-11, 185) to go along with outstanding speed (4.45) and quickness. He said he doesn't care where he plays as long as he has a chance to come in and compete for playing time early.

"I like them both for different reasons," Floyd said. "I love being a playmaker on offense because it's fun to have the ball in your hands and spark the team up when they need it.

"But on defense it's fun because you can stop the other team and get your team pumped up that way and when you make a pick and turn the ball over to your offense or you take it to the house that just demoralizes your opponent."

On the recruiting front Arizona State holds the top spot on Floyd's list of favorites, but that may change here in the near future.

"Washington has been talking to me a lot lately and coach (J.D.) Williams was at my game last week which was pretty cool," Floyd said. "Coach (Trent) Miles is the main coach recruiting me and we have a good relationship. He calls me and I call him a lot and we just talk football and how things are going. I really like them a lot and they are right up there with ASU, but I really want to check them out before I say they're my leader, but they're close right now.

"They said they really like me a lot and that I just need to be patient while they evaluate me. They want me to come up for a visit in December and I'm getting ready to set that up. I'm getting all my clearinghouse stuff done this week and then I can start setting up my visits."

In addition to the Sun Devils and Huskies, Oregon and Nevada are the two other schools most interested in Floyd.

"All of those schools like me as an athlete, but they all have said they want to try me at receiver first and then see where things are at," Floyd said. "It's pretty up in the air where they all want me and that's fine. As long as I get a chance to compete, that's really all I can ask for."

Floyd and his Crenshaw teammates take on Culver City Friday night. We'll have more from the playmaking athlete from Los Angeles in the very near future.
