Fellner commits to the Huskies

Kim Grinolds of Dawgman.com caught up with Nathan Fellner, a 6-foot, 195-pound safety prospect from Clovis (Calif.) West, and Fellner told Grinolds that he verbally committed to Washington Thursday over offers from Stanford, San Diego State and Washington State.

"I was up there this past weekend for four days," Fellner said. "I loved it up there. I love the campus, the stadium. It felt like the best fit for me."

Fellner called up the UW coaches Thursday to spring the good news. "I called up the football office and got connected to Coach (Tyrone) Willingham," Fellner said. "I told him I wanted to be a Husky, and he was pumped. He gave the phone over to Coach (J.D.) Williams, and I told him too."

The Huskies like Fellner as a safety in the mold of former California player and current Indianapolis Colt Matt Giordano.

Fellner said he hasn't talked to his family about the possibility of taking other visits, but he's 'solidly committed' to Washington. "All the tradition, the stadium (Husky Stadium), it's great," he added. "I love from the view of the stadium out to the water.

"With all the tradition that's there, that's one of the things that appealed to me - restoring that tradition. I think the program is headed for good things."
