Kaleb McGary was one of many high-profile prospects at the Oregon State-Washington game this past weekend and the 2014 recruit was definitely the biggest in terms of size.
The 6-foot-9, 270-pound offensive tackle from Vancouver (Wash.) Battle Ground - whose nickname is Big Country - said it was an exciting atmosphere especially since the Huskies upended previously-unbeaten Oregon State.
Washington is definitely one of McGary's favorite programs and he said being in attendance with UCLA commit Myles Jack, top 2014 prospect Budda Baker and others was an exciting time.
"It was awesome," McGary said. "Everybody was excited and ready to go. The crowd was great. It was just a great place to be."
Washington is playing at CenturyLink Field in Seattle this season as its stadium is being built on campus but that has not taken away from the excitement.
The Huskies have struggled but big upset victories against Stanford and now Oregon State at home have definitely invigorated some recruits. McGary, who already has four early offers, is one of them.
"I think their new stadium will be even better," McGary said. "It's a home game for the Huskies so it's just cool being there."
Washington, Oregon State, Utah and Washington State have offered McGary and he said the Huskies do stand out a little in his recruitment but it's still too early to make any commitment.
Many other schools including Michigan, Nebraska and others have recently shown more interest so the massive junior offensive lineman wants to take more time to see what happens through the recruiting process.
Washington might be tough to beat though.
"They're at the top of my list because I've been a Husky fan forever," McGary said. "It's still early and I'm not deciding on anything yet."
