The last weekend of February York took an unofficial visit to Washington for their junior day.
At that time York didn't get an offer from the Huskies citing they wanted to see some game tape and then if they liked what they saw UW would also offer the talented offensive tackle a scholie.
"Washington offered me Saturday night (March 11th)," York said. "I got a text from Coach Randy Hart asking for me to call them and when I did they offered me."
York will probably take another unofficial visit to Washington now that he has received an offer from the Huskies.
York's good news doesn't stop with Washington.
"I also recently received an offer from Coach Dennis Erickson at the University of Idaho."
What that means is York has five offers from the possible six schools in his immediate area.
Arizona State and Stanford are also very interested in York.
This coming weekend York is schedule to visit the Oregon schools starting March 18th.
York is leaving nothing to chance as he is going through a rigorous off-season training and doing everything he can to get himself for his senior season.
"At my sports training facility, I recently set the leg press record," York said. "The machine goes up to 600 pounds and I set the record by repping it 11 times. I was the only the second one to even get 600 pounds on the leg press machine."
"On the treadmill you get your name on a board as being a member of the cheetah club which means you ran 20 miles an hour on the treadmill," York said. "The fastest ever is 21 mph and I almost got 20, but couldn't maintain it for six seconds."
"The cheetah club is all receivers' and track kids," York said. "I would have been the first lineman and without a doubt the biggest."
"All of the trainers were impressed I could run 19 mph at 270-pounds," York said. "The guy who runs the training facility has connections on in the east and sent my tape to Northwestern and Vanderbilt. He said that both schools like what they saw and will be in touch with my coach shortly."
On the gridiron, York was a second-team all-league and second-team all-area performer as a junior, but the interesting thing is he was the only underclassman to be honored on either team.
In the classroom, York carries a 3.91 GPA and was among the top 12 per cent on the Country on the PSAT.
