This weekend, Gaines is taking a trip to Washington and Gaines said if things go well, then his decision could be made up again.

The La Habra standout said if his trip to Washington goes well then another commitment could be made.
The new coaching staff at Washington is a major pull for Gaines, who said his recruitment is basically down to the Huskies and Boise State, but a lot could depend on his trip this weekend.
"It's between Boise and Washington right now for me," Gaines said.
Two factors could be playing major roles for Gaines - the coaching staff at Washington is basically the people he enjoyed so much when they were at Boise, and playing in the Pac-12 could be a serious pull for him.
