CARSON, Calif. - Taylor Lagace wants to make a decision before his senior season and the Arcadia wide receiver said Thursday at the Big Man on Campus Under the Lights 7-on-7 Tournament that one Pac-10 school is looking better than all the rest.
Washington is the clear leader for the 6-foot, 176-pound wide receiver who also has offers from Boise State, Idaho, New Mexico State and a few others.
BYU and UCLA are showing lots of interest but it could be difficult to beat the Huskies especially since they've been heavily involved for so long.
Lagace, a three-star prospect who is done with summer camps after going to UCLA and USC, said he has already taken an unofficial visit to Washington and loved it.
He also gets along with the coaching staff and all signs point to the Huskies landing his pledge sometime before his senior year gets underway.
"I love it up there," Lagace said Thursday at The Home Depot Center. "They're definitely the leader. I like everything about it. I know some people up there. Their coaches have some connections to my coaches so we're teaching the same techniques and I just like it a lot.
"I want to commit before the season so I'll talk it over with my family and we'll see about my decision. I'll just talk with my family about it, pray about it and then do what I think is best."
More offers could be on the way for Lagace but it's getting close to decision time so teams better hurry up if they want even an outside shot to persuade him elsewhere.
Lagace, who played well especially at wide receiver during Thursday's action, said BYU will offer if he visits and that the Bruins could also be close to an offer after his recent camp performance.
