Brayden Kearsley remains committed to BYU but the Aloha, Ore., offensive tackle is taking visits and he had a valuable one to Washington this past weekend for its spring game and junior day.
It was not his first time in Seattle but the 6-foot-5, 295-pound three-star prospect had another good trip and it reinforced his thoughts that the Huskies could be one of his favorites.
"I visited the locker room and checked out the spring game at Qwest Field and that was pretty good," Kearsley said. "There were a lot of people there and I thought it was really good meeting the coaching staff.

"They really like me. They like my film a lot. There were a lot of people there, a lot of players there, so I couldn't talk to every single coach but when I had some time it was great and they were really good guys.
"The facilities are pretty good and Seattle is a beautiful city so it was all what I thought it was going to be. It wasn't my first time there so I knew a lot about it and I love Seattle."
The plan for Kearsley, who has been committed to BYU since his junior season, is to narrow his list to a top five sometime this summer, take some official visits and then make his commitment.
Kearsley would like to have his final decision by the start of his senior season but said he'll absolutely make his mind up by midseason at the latest. With more programs getting involved all the time, it's difficult for Kearsley to narrow it down too early.
"I'm going to close it down to a top five in the summer and then I'll go from there," Kearsley said.
"My top five changes with the new schools coming in so I'm not always sure but I should have a top five in July."
So far, Kearsley has offers from BYU, Arizona State, Colorado, Hawaii, Oregon State, UCLA, Utah and Washington.
