Taylor McNamara visited Colorado two weeks ago and was at Washington this past weekend as the four-star tight end who's still committed to Arizona considers all options in his recruitment.
Things went well for the San Diego (Calif.) Westview who committed to the Wildcats in June but he has started looking around after they fired coach Mike Stoops earlier this season.
After his trip to Washington, the Huskies are definitely in play but McNamara wants to take his three remaining visits before finalizing his decision. The coaching staff at Washington especially stood out.

"I really enjoyed it," McNamara said. "It was a great visit. They took me across the city and showed me pretty much everything in Seattle. It was really nice and I enjoyed the whole thing. The thing that stands out about them is the energy the coaches have.
"That is really important. The staff is who you're going to spend most of your time with so that definitely plays a factor in things."
McNamara, rated as the second-best tight end and No. 90 prospect in the 2012 class, plans to visit Notre Dame on Nov. 18 and then Oklahoma the following weekend. A trip to California is also planned for Dec. 9.
Following those three visits, McNamara said he plans to weigh out all his options - which includes sticking with his commitment to Arizona - and making his commitment. First, he would like to see who the Wildcats hire to see if they would remain a viable option.
"I'm going to take all of my visits and then I'll make a decision shortly after that," McNamara said.
