Whithorne back from unofficial

It was a script right out of Hollywood. High school receiver that's committed to a school goes to that school to see a game for the first time in the stadium he'll be playing in next year. It's a see-saw affair, but then the star receiver for the home team takes a simple slant and goes 80 yards with two minutes to play in the game. It's the play that wins it.

But surely for Bobby Whithorne, a 6-1, 175-pound prospect from Santa Margarita, California, this scenario is just what he needed to see to solidify his commitment to the Washington Huskies.

"I got hyped, a lot more hyped about it," Whithorne told Dawgman.com about his verbal commitment to play football for Washington next fall. "It was even better than I thought it would be. It was awesome. I had a really good time and I'm really excited to be a Husky."

Bobby filled us in on the details of his unofficial visit to Seattle this past weekend with his father and his good friend Bubba. "We flew in and got to the game around 10 o'clock," he said. "I saw Coach (Brent) Myers and Coach (Rick) Neuheisel and talked to them for a while. I saw the players warm up and then went to the seats to see the game. It was really exciting at the end when they were all chanting Reggie's name when he scored. Then we went into the team room and listened to Coach Neuheisel's speech after the game. He was really excited about the win and can't wait to play SC next weekend."

Any other highlights? "We went to dinner at the Union Square Grill," Whithorne said. "It was so good."

Bobby talked about his conversations with the Husky coaches. "Coach Myers said he was really excited to see me and Coach Neuheisel was really excited also. Coach Myers will be stopping by my school Friday since they are going to be in town for the SC game."
