Patrick Enewally has narrowed his choices to Washington and Cal and the Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr defensive back could make his decision soon.
The 6-foot-1, 191-pound three-star who could play cornerback or safety had glowing things to say about Washington, considered to have a slight lead in his recruitment, and the Huskies could be close to landing his pledge.
"It's like a different connection with the coaches there," Enewally said. "I can connect with them on a great level.
"I'm familiar with the players, they have a great education there, the opportunity to play is great and I could contribute. I know it's possible to be great there looking at guys like Desmond Trufant."
Enewally, who also had UCLA high on his list recently but is no longer seriously considering the Bruins, said his visit to Cal last weekend went really well.
He had a fantastic time talking with the new coach staff and getting a feel for how the Golden Bears would use him on defense.
Cal is definitely under serious consideration as decision day gets closer for Enewally, who missed the South Bay BMW West Coast Bowl last weekend to take his trip to Berkeley.
Enewally said he could make his commitment any day or possibly wait until signing day.
"I liked it," Enewally said of Cal. "It was a nice trip. The Bay Area was kind of different but it's pretty adjustable. I got along well with the players.
"I went over how I could immediately contribute to their program as a big, fast, rangy cornerback. I watched film and talked about how I could contribute. Coach (Sonny) Dykes talked about how he's going to change the offense and I know at Louisiana Tech he had a top offense in the nation last season. I also know a Cal degree is held high."
