Huskies still hold top spot for Flowers

Washington offered Edison (Fresno) DT Wesley Flowers in March and they remain his only offer, however recently some other Pac 10 schools have started to pick up the pace and they could be close to extending offers as well. Dawgman.com caught up with the talented defensive lineman and he updated us on things including his plans for this summer...

"Things have been going good for me," Flowers told Dawgman.com. "Washington is still my only offer, but Cal, Oregon and Stanford have started to pick up a little bit and Cal wants me to come up for a visit and I'm going to do that when I head there for their camp in June.

"Me and Tevin (McDonald) were supposed to head up to Washington to visit this past weekend for their spring game, but we weren't able to make it up, so we're both planning to take a trip up there either in the summer or definitely on an official visit this fall."

Flowers said Washington continues to lead over the rest of the schools and it's partly because of the Husky coaching staff.

"Washington is a school I could definitely play for," Flowers said. "I really like the staff there and getting to know them has been great.

"They are very energetic and I would like to play for them, but I'm not ready to make my decision and I really want to see what happens with some of the other schools that are recruiting me."

As a junior in 2008, Flowers finished the season with 50 tackles, 16 tackles for loss, six sacks and two fumbles.

"I have a quick 'get off'," Flowers said. "I can play end or tackle, but most schools are recruiting me as a tackle."

Flowers has been hard at work in the weight room, increasing his bench press from 305 pounds to over 340 pounds and his squat from 350 pounds to 400 pounds.

"I know I need to get stronger and that's been my focus this spring and it will be all summer too," Flowers said. "I'm excited about all the stuff going on and I'm just making sure I get it all done in the weight room and in the classroom as well."

Flowers said he doesn't plan to make an early decision and that he would like to take all of his visits before he commits to a school.

We'll have more from Flowers down the road as recruiting continues to heat up.
