Slavin has Husky trip in the works

Washington's big win over USC on Saturday didn't go unnoticed by Roosevelt (Corona, Ca.) WR Tyler Slavin who is working on setting up his visit to Montlake. spoke with the talented wideout recently and he updated us on how things are going with his season as well as which two schools he's already set up visits with...

"I watched the game and it was amazing," Slavin told about Washington's win over USC on Saturday. "It was a great game. I wasn't surprised Washington won though. The coaches there are great, they knew a lot about what USC could do because they're from there and the Trojans always seem to lose their third game so I thought Washington had a really good chance of pulling off the upset.

"I really thought it was cool when the camera would shake when the fans cheered and when big plays happened. That place was going crazy and then when they won, it was nuts how the fans ran on the field celebrating. I know they lost a bunch of games, so they deserved that celebration."

Slavin has had the Huskies at the top of his list for the past couple months and said nothing has changed.

"They are right up there for me," Slavin said. "I love the coaches and I really like what they are doing up there with their offense and how they are starting to get the ball rolling.

"Their receivers are making plays and they have a great quarterback and their defense really toughened up a lot. It's a school that is on it's way."

Slavin has already scheduled two official visits and while he hasn't scheduled his trip to Washington, he claims that is currently in the works.

"I'm going to visit Nebraska when they play Oklahoma (11/7) and I'm visiting Arizona when they play UCLA (10/24) and I'm working on setting things up with Washington's coaches too," Slavin said. "I'm not sure when it will happen, but they are my leader right now so I'm definitely making it up there for a visit. I'm going to talk to the coaches soon about a date."

Slavin said the other school that will possibly get a visit is Northwestern, but he isn't positive he will take all five official visits before he makes his decision.

"I'm not real close to choosing a school, but I've thought about where I want to play and what I'm looking for," Slavin said. "All three (Washington, Nebraska and Arizona) have what I'm looking for. Aggressive coaches, good offenses and they all have good academics and support."

Slavin has gotten off to a great start thsi season, catching eight passes for 210 yards and one touchdown in his first two games. This week he and his teammates will take on Bloomington High School.
