Breshers talks about Washington visit

Washington's 2008 recruiting class is loaded with talent and one of the prizes of that class is Price PF Tyreese Breshers who committed early on to Miami, but made the switch shortly thereafter to the Huskies. He was on campus a couple of weeks ago for his official visit and he talked about that trip as well as what he's been focusing on during his offseason workouts.

"I'm in good shape, but I need to get into a lot better shape before I get there," Breshers said with laugh. "I'm doing individual workouts and lifting weights and running a lot. (Washington) plays that up tempo style so I know I have to get in better shape."

Breshers was on campus for his official visit back on September 28th and said he enjoyed his visit to Seattle and getting to watch his soon-to-be teammates work out.

"What stood out to me was how intense their practices are," Breshers admitted. "In high school, I told coach (Lorenzo) Romar this, my coach has to threaten us to practice that hard, but at Washington there whole practice was like that and they just got after it the whole time without the coaches having to get them to do it.

"I didn't get to scrimmage with the team. My coach implied to me that he didn't want me to play because he didn't want me to get injured, but when I was walking off the plane I got a text message from him telling me I could play if I wanted to, but I couldn't because I didn't pack for it."

Another visitor, fellow commit Elston Turner Jr. was also on hand the two have become fast friends over the past few months.

"Me and Elston had already met in Philadelphia at the Reebok youth camp so we had been cool before the trip so it was good to hang out with him," Breshers said. "He's a good guy and we talked about what it's going to be like to play together here and have fun."

For high school athletes, food is usually a highlight of any official visit and Breshers was no different.

"We ate at coach Romar's house and a place called the RAM," Breshers said. "We ate at P.F. Changs and at the tailgate party after the game. They fed us well that's for sure."

This year Breshers will be a co-captain of his high school team and he said he's ready for his newfound leadership role.

"This year me and Victor Johnson are going to be the captains so there is a lot more pressure on us, but I think we will run the team well," Breshers said.

We'll have more in the coming weeks as we follow Breshers' senior season.
