Trip Report: Terrance Dailey

Back in August, Vacaville (Ca.) RB Terrance Dailey took an unofficial visit to Washington and he felt so comfortable with the staff and the program that he committed on the spot. Now, only four weeks before signing day, Dailey reaffirmed his commitment to Washington while on his official visit to Montlake and he talked about what impressed him most about his 48 hours on campus.

"It was a great visit," Dailey told shortly after arriving at his home following his trip. "We had a lot of fun and just got to know all of the players and some of the other recruits.

"Chris Izbicki was my host and he just showed me around and we hung out. During the basketball game, we went back into their game room and we started playing Madden so I didn't get to see the end, but the crowd was hyped up and into it and that's what you want to see in a crowd that's rooting your team on."

Dailey brought his mother with him on this visit, his father came on the one in August, and he said they sat and talked with head coach Tyrone Willingham for almost two hours.

"We were in there for an hour and 45 minutes," Dailey said with a chuckle. "It was fun just sitting with him and talking to him about the program and where he thinks it's headed and how he sees me contributing next year.

"It was also cool for my mom to get to know him and see why I liked Seattle and U-Dub so much. That was really important because it's my mom and I want her to feel good about where I'm going to be for the next four years and who will be helping me become a better person and player."

Dailey said his teammate, Josh Kaddu, came away impressed as well, but he wasn't aware of him making a commitment.

"I told the coaches this is where I'm going to be and I'm excited to be a Husky," Dailey said. "I think Josh was pretty impressed and he had a lot of fun, but I think he wants to just look at other schools and then make a decision for himself.

"I think Washington is where he will end up, but that decision is all his so he needs to do what is best for him."

Dailey finished his high school career by posting almost 1,800 yards and scoring over 30 touchdowns while leading the Bulldogs to the playoffs.

Willingham will be in Dailey's home on January 22nd for his in-home visit and to meet the rest of his family.
