Budda Baker said this summer that Washington is one of his three favorites so it was even more important that the Bellevue, Wash., four-star made it over to the Huskies' campus this weekend.
Many prospects were in attendance, to see practice, the renovated stadium and the new facilities but none were bigger - or arguably more important - than Baker, who shined at events this summer and is already the state's top prospect.
"It was real nice and it made me think about my first game under the lights against Skyline at Washington," said Baker, who leads Bellevue into the season on Sept 6.

The 5-foot-11, 178-pound prospect who can play on either side of the ball recently said Washington, Oregon and UCLA are his three favorites. Many programs across the country have offered Baker, but it appears he will stay somewhere in the Pac-12.
Rated as the ninth-best safety and the No. 69 prospect in the 2014 class by Rivals.com, Baker said he was definitely impressed with Washington's new facilities but that probably won't play a major factor throughout his decision-making process.
"They are really nice but I don't really put facilities in my decision," Baker said. "That's just a plus. Washington is in the top five so it's good."
There is still a good amount of time before Baker makes his decision.
The four-star Bellevue standout said he doesn't plan to make his choice until after the football season and that could go all the way to National Signing Day. Baker is still working on figuring out his official visit schedule as well.
