Crane sure of Pac-12 decision

After his official visit to Washington this past weekend, Dane Crane is not 100 percent committed to the Huskies.
"Now more than ever, I'm 100,000 percent committed," Crane said.
That's pretty solid for the Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita Catholic center who joined his teammate and fellow Washington commit Connor O'Brien on the trip.
It was a great time for Crane to go since Washington upset Stanford and he got a chance to spend time with the players, see the game-day environment and also check in on the new stadium and facilities.
Everything seemed to go well for Crane, rated as the seventh-best center in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, and there's no reason at all to think he's considering any other school in his recruitment.
"It was definitely incredible," Crane said.
"The first day I saw the campus and I was with the team at the hotel and went through all that pre-game stuff. The game was just insane. I spent some time with our hosts, Eric Kohler and Mike Criste, and they were great guys. They answered a lot of my questions and took care of me. It was awesome."
Although the game was off campus because of stadium renovations, Crane said he had a great time watching the Huskies upset Stanford and the crowd was lively the whole time.
"CenturyLink Field is a beautiful stadium so it was pretty cool going there and it was crazy," Crane said.
"It was super loud there, one of the loudest environments I've ever been in and everyone said it's nothing compared to Husky Stadium. Especially now it's going to be even louder and bigger and better. That's the place I'm going to be playing in so I'm pretty excited."
The next step for Crane is to keep working on Santa Margarita teammate Riley Sorenson, who has Washington in his top three, and other prospects to round out the Huskies' recruiting class.
After this trip, Crane has no doubts he's found his future home.
"I'm trying to talk to Riley and I've always been trying to work on him but sometimes he's hard to read," Crane said. "I'm doing my best there and I'm working on some other guys trying to get as many people as I can to join the family."
