K.J. Carta-Samuels is ready to hit the road.
The former Vanderbilt quarterback commit is visiting Washington this weekend and right from there the four-star could head to another official visit as he tries to figure out which program fits him best.
The San Jose (Calif.) Bellarmine Prep standout was all set for Vanderbilt but when coach James Franklin left for Penn State his recruitment turned upside down.

"I set up an official visit for this weekend," Carta-Samuels said. "I'm flying out this Friday and then maybe Sunday I could fly out to either Boise State or Penn State depending on the situation and depending on the contact with the coaches.
"I don't know if (Washington) was unsure of what I was doing but my dad gave them a call and told them we're looking for a school and we're interested in what Washington might have to offer. They reported that to the offensive coordinator and he messaged me on Facebook."
Carta-Samuels called offensive coordinator/quarterbacks coach Jonathan Smith and the two talked and then the four-star chatted with coach Chris Petersen, setting up an official visit.
"I called (Smith) and I talked to him and Chris Petersen and we talked for a little bit," Carta-Samuels said. "It was good. We talked about football and maybe the future and what could happen and setting up an official."
The other upcoming visits are still undecided. Whether it's in the coming days or weeks, Carta-Samuels expects to visit all the schools showing interest before making a decision.
"I'm still trying to figure that out with my parents and the other coaches," Carta-Samuels said. "I might take Boise on Sunday and Monday and then I'll visit Penn State the next week or the other way around."
