Lavon Coleman attended the UCLA-Utah game this past weekend and even though both teams are recruiting him the Lompoc, Calif., running back said he remains fully committed to Washington.
"I went down to UCLA to watch the game," Coleman said. "It's been a little off and on with those guys but lately it's been a little on. They've been talking to me a little bit but nothing too much.
"My commitment to Washington is firm."
The 5-foot-11, 210-pound three-star running back said he's sticking with the Huskies despite other schools trying to get involved because he loves the people around the Washington program.
When he went to visit Washington, Coleman said he got a different feeling from the players and that's something that has stuck out through his recruitment.
"It's the people to me," Coleman said. "I haven't met every person in the city but I've met a couple of the players like Ryan (McDaniel) and (Deontae) Cooper and they're really cool.
"We stay in touch a lot. When I first got up there, usually when you meet college players it's a handshake and whatever. With them they were really nice and they asked me to come over and play Madden. It was really cool."
Coleman will still listen to other programs and he said mainly Utah, UCLA and Fresno State have remained in serious contact. Washington continues to diligently recruit him even after his commitment to the Huskies on July 1.
Rivals.com rates Coleman as the No. 39 running back in the 2013 class and No. 51 in the California state rankings.
