The Washington Huskies have struggled some on the field this season, but that didn't stop them from pulling in some good early commitments.
One of the biggest and the best is four-star and Rivals250 defensive tackle Cameron Elisara. The 6-foot-2, 275-pound Elisara said he's already excited about his future with Washington – even if things on the field aren't so exciting now.
"I went to the Washington-Notre Dame game, and it was a lot of fun," Elisara, who is ranked as the No. 4 player in Washington, said. "I mean, the score could have been better, but I was there with a lot of other recruits where were interested in Washington and a few other commitments. I got along with all of them pretty well.
"I got to talk to Jake Locker for the first time, and he was real down to earth. I talked to Montgomery and I really like him a lot. Stephen Schilling was pretty quiet, but I got along with him. I didn't get to talk to him a lot, though. Then Ryan Tolar is a real cool guy. I think I'm going to room with him next year."
Making plans for roommates in the future has to sound reassuring to Husky fans. But then again it doesn't sound like there has ever been any doubt for the standout defensive tackle.
"I'm still getting some letters and a few calls - a lot of handwritten letters from coaches wanting to talk to me," he said. "I tell them I appreciate it, but my recruiting is over."
Elisara isn't sure when he is going to take his official visit to UDub, but he's looking forward to when he can go.
"I haven't taken any official visits yet. I'm going to wait until the season is over to take my official visit to Washington, but that will be my only visit," he said. "Coach (Randy) Hart calls me every week. We talk for about 10 minutes about football, and he coaches me over the phone a little bit.
