Trip Report: Keith Price

St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Ca.) QB Keith Price had already been up to visit Washington during the summer, but he said that didn't even compare to the weekend he just spent on Montlake. After meeting with the coaches as well as his future teammates the talented passer said 'I'm ready to play today' for the Huskies. Read on to find out more about his official visit and his thoughts on the Dawgs...

"Oh man, it was the most fantastic visit," Price gushed as he waited at Sea-Tac for his flight to leave. "I would have to say they blew me away. It was better than Oregon and Arizona State. They just showed me a great time."

Price's host on his visit was WR Jermaine Kearse and the man who he hopes to succeed in two years, Jake Locker.

"Jermaine was my host for the first night and then on Saturday night, I hung with Jake," Price said. "I can't believe how big he is. I mean, he's huge and he just told me to listen to the coaches and to do the program like they will lay it out for me and I will add muscle and get bigger and stronger.

"I guess the new staff is working these guys hard. The new weight room guy is no joke I guess, so they said they think things are going to turn around quickly."

Price is one who loves to talk and he's never met a stranger. With that in mind, is it any wonder he was working the other non-committed players on his trip?

"Me and Nate (Fellner) both worked on James Johnson for a while and told him he had to commit to be with us," Price said. "Chris Robinson and I are real tight now and he committed just like James did because they both wanted to help bring Washington back to the top and they said 'hey, we want to be a part of this and we want to hang with you', so they committed right there on Saturday night which was really cool."

Price said one of the highlights of the whole weekend was running out of the tunnel onto the Husky Stadium field.

"That was off the hook," Price said. "It was all foggy from the smoke the before that they had gotten everyone hyped up in the locker room and they broke things down like they would in a real game and they said 'this is LSU we're playing, here's who we have to stop and this is what we are going to do' and stuff like that so it was real intense.

"Then as we were walking down the tunnel, guys started barking and going 'woof, woof, woof' and they had us doing a chant and stuff and then we went out on the field and we went through pregame and how they do things. So it was just a great time."

Price said he will now begin to work on more of the southern California players that Washington is after to help bring in even more players into the program.
