Amos sets up first visit

Anthony Amos is a 6-4, 270-pound defensive tackle, and from the looks of things it seems the University of Washington is checking out Muir High School in Pasadena, California early and often. Maybe they've been listening to a Muir alumnus - Anthony Kelley. First it was ATH Drew Pearson and now it's Amos, a 'big ugly' who can plug up the run like a rubber stop in a kitchen sink. But he won't crow about it. He's a team player first.

"I had a knee injury in the beginning of the year, so I was only able to play nine games," Amos told last night. I'm the kind of player that cuts off the running game, but I'm a pretty quiet person off the field." Anthony runs a 5.0 40 and bench-presses 360 pounds.

Recruiting contact has been trickling Amos' way now that Muir's season is over. "Washington, Idaho, Arizona and Oregon are the schools that have talked to me," Anthony said. "I know I'm going to take a trip to Washington (1/17)." Growing up, he rooted for the Huskies, as well as the Trojans, Bruins, Wildcats, Ducks and the Colorado Buffaloes.

Bobby Kennedy is the only coach he's talked to so far. "He talked to me at our school," Amos said. "It was fine. He said that they are really interested in me." As of right now, Anthony is still waiting for his first scholarship offer.
