"It was unbelievable the environment I was in with all the people," O'Brien said. "All the players were great guys and the coaches were awesome so everything was great.
"They showed us the outline of what they're planning for us and what they're going to have. I went to Washington a few months ago to check it out and there has been a lot of progress since then. What they told me and showed me it's going to be awesome."
Washington is basically building an entirely new stadium and O'Brien is thrilled with how things are progressing.
The Santa Margarita Catholic standout said there are many reasons why Washington was the right place and the new digs was definitely a big one.
"I'm extremely excited and that was one of many reasons why I chose the place," O'Brien said. "I'm really excited about it."
O'Brien's recruitment had really picked up leading in to his Washington commitment in April.
Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Duke, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State and Washington State had all offered but O'Brien said he's not considering any other schools.
"There are a few still recruiting me but it's slowed down a lot since my commitment," O'Brien said. "I'm fully committed to Washington and there is no place else I'd rather be but there."
