Huskies are high on Jordan athlete's list

Washington already has their collective eyes on Jordan (Los Angeles) QB/DE James Boyd and he's scheduled a visit to the Huskies the last weekend of the month. Joining Boyd will be his talented teammate, ATH Delvon Purvis who could play a number of positions and while he doesn't have an offer yet, he's very high on what is going on at Montlake.

"Washington has been on me since coach (Steve) Sarkisian took over," Purvis told "Coach (Demetrice) Martin is the coach recruiting me for them and he wants me to come visit with James at the end of the month (January 30th) so I'm going up there that weekend."

Purvis was a monster on both sides of the ball for Jordan in 2008, posting 69 receptions for 1,175 yards and 13 touchdowns while notching 71 tackles, one sack and two fumble recoveries as a defensive back.

"I think Washington is mainly looking at me on offense, but that's just a guess right now," Purvis said. "I could play corner or safety or wide receiver, it really doesn't matter to me, I just want to play."

Besides the Huskies, Arizona, Oregon State and Nevada have been looking at Purvis and his 4.5 speed, but at this point Washington has shown the most interest and he said if the Huskies offer, "I'm going to take it."

We'll continue to track Purvis' progress over the coming weeks and update things as news breaks.
