Sherry will attend Husky camp

Washington will be hosting several in-state and out-of-state signal-callers at their Rising Stars camp later this month. One that appears to have moved to the forefront of their quarterback recruiting is Casa Grande (Petaluma, Ca.) QB Nick Sherry and the talented passer will make his second trip to Montlake in a couple of weeks to show the Husky coaches what he can do...

"I actually have already visited Washington once," Sherry told Sunday evening. "I went up there about four months ago and I spent time talking with coach (Doug) Nussmeier and got to see the school, the facilities and the campus.

"It was a really great visit. Just seeing the campus and sitting down with coach Nuss was really special. I got to talk to him for a while and he was really up-front with me that they had a 'top-three' and that I was in the next group of guys and that they liked me and what I could do."

This past weekend, Sherry took part in Arizona's camp and said the Wildcats seem very interested in what he brings to the table and this coming weekend he'll attend Colorado's camp and then will head to Berkeley to take part in Cal's camp with his team.

"I'm just going to work out for all of them and go out and compete," Sherry said. "I really want to get out there and show them what I can do and let them see how I take to the coaching they do.

"Besides those camps, I'll also be at Washington's Rising Stars camp where I can throw for coach Nuss and coach (Steve) Sarkisian. (Nussmeier) and I talked last week and he said they really want me to come up for camp and to throw for them."

Sherry noted that his top three are Washington, Arizona and San Diego State, the only FBS school to offer so far, followed by Washington State and Colorado.

"Washington, Arizona and San Diego State are the schools I'm focused on the most right now," Sherry said. "Those three are my leaders and then probably Washington State and Colorado are next.

"If Washington and Arizona offer me, then I'll definitely have some thinking to do. If only one offers, then my decision will be that much easier."

As a junior last fall, Sherry completed 161 of his 288 attempts for 2,449 yards and 24 touchdowns and 13 interceptions and led his team to an 11-2 record including a loss in the CIF Championship game and he said that's going to be his focus this summer, after he makes his choice.

"I've already talked about making my decision early because we have a lot of our top guys back for this year," Sherry said. "I want to concentrate on my senior season and playing the best I can and helping lead us back to the championship game because we let that one slip away."

In addition to being a standout on the football field, Sherry is also a heavy contributor on the hard court, playing forward on the Casa Grande basketball team.

"I had talked to some schools about possibly enrolling early, but I really want to play basketball," Sherry said. "I guess the schools on the quarter system (like Washington) can have players enroll in late March and that would be perfect for me if I wanted to leave early so that is definitely a possibility.

"I'll sorta start thinking about that after I make my decision and can just focus on that."

We'll check in with Sherry following his trip to Seattle for camp and we'll update things as they change regarding his recruitment.
