Lavon Coleman is not counting any schools out but it looks like Washington could be the winner in his recruitment.
Coleman, a 5-foot-11, 210-pound three-star prospect from Lompoc, Calif., does not plan to commit for many months but said the Huskies will be tough to beat for his pledge.
"Washington is basically the school I'm thinking of going to," Coleman said. "They're the leader and they seem to be pulling away from everybody."

The three-star prospect attended a camp this past weekend and during that time talked with another recruit about Washington and what they both liked. That conversation compelled Coleman to like the Huskies even more.
"Before it was everything like the coaches, the community, the way everybody gets along but then at a camp I met with someone who's going to commit there - he doesn't want his name out - and we were talking about different things about Washington," Coleman said.
"We talked about our perspectives on it and we had the same likes and so Washington keeps getting bigger and bigger. I'm not committing anytime soon. I want to wait until my senior year when I ball out and then after that I'll commit."
Cal recently offered Coleman, who also has Arizona, Boise State, Fresno State, Oregon State, San Diego State, UCLA, Utah and Washington State on his list.
To some surprise, Coleman recently said Fresno State and Oregon State were also serious contenders along with the Huskies in his recruitment but now he has Washington way up on his list.
"I'm not counting anybody out because I just got an offer from Cal," Coleman said. "Anybody could creep up but Washington is the only one that's really up there and still on it."
