Jeff Camilli took his official visit to Washington State this past weekend and the Shingle Springs (Calif.) Ponderosa inside linebacker might have found his future home.
The 6-foot-4, 245-pound prospect said he loved the coaching staff and the players and that the Cougars move up to No. 1 for him.
"It was great," Camilli said. "I went up there really not knowing what to expect but I ended up loving everything about it.

"The coaching staff was great, the players were great, the area was great and they're going to be good. They have a ton of true freshmen starting right now and they're only going to get so much better especially with coach (Mike) Leach going there. It's going to be really crazy there. They moved into my No. 1 spot.
Camilli decided to hold off on making his commitment during the weekend trip, though, because he still wants to visit Fresno State in early December.
Colorado State, Nevada and San Jose State have also offered but Camilli said Washington State and Fresno State have emerged as the favorites. After his trip to Fresno State in the coming weeks, Camilli should be ready to make his decision.
"It's between them and Fresno State," Camilli said. "I take my Fresno State visit on December 7 and then I'll make my decision probably a week after that."
Washington State impressed him greatly and playing in the Pac-12 is also a draw. The Cougars are the favorite for Camilli with one visit left and a decision continues to get closer.
"[Playing in the Pac-12] is something I've been dreaming about since I started playing football," Camilli said. "It's a huge opportunity to see what I can do and how I stack up against some of the best players in the nation."
