Wilson Afoa trip report

Dawgman.com caught up with a tired but happy Wilson Afoa, a 6-3, 260-pound defensive end prospect from Honolulu (Hawaii) St. Louis. Wilson just got back from his official visit to the University of Washington, where it looks like his trip just might be tough to beat.

"I would give it a 10, I really liked it," Afoa said. "The surroundings were great and the city really opened my eyes."

When asked about highlights, all Afoa could say was, 'Where do I start?'. "We took tours of the campus and got to meet our academic counselors. We ate at the Space Needle. We actually ate at a lot of fancy restaurants. I had filet mignon and lobster."

Joe Lobendahn and Donny Mateaki were Wilson's hosts. "They told me that it feels like home because of the strong Polynesian community," Afoa said. "I could see it too."

Wilson is being recruited to play end for the Dawgs and he does have a scholarship offer. "I watched videos of the drills they do and the formations they run," he said. "A lot of the drills are pretty much the same that we run at St. Louis."

Afoa still has a couple of official visits to take before making his final decision. "I am going to try and take my visit to UH next weekend so I can get this over with," he said. "Then I have my visit to Utah (1/24). When I'm done with those visits I'll make my decision. I didn't commit to Washington. I want to keep my options open."

Afoa will be having guests this week, as Washington State, Washington and Utah are all expected for in-home visits.
