Connor O'Brien loved his trip to Washington this past weekend for the spring game and junior day and if he follows through then a commitment to the Huskies could be close.
"I'm really interested," O'Brien said Sunday evening. "I think I'm going to have a decision very soon."
The Rancho Santa Margarita (Calif.) Santa Margarita Catholic three-star prospect has seen his recruitment take off in recent weeks and he now has offers from Arizona State, Cal, Colorado, Duke, Oregon, Oregon State, San Diego State, Washington and Washington State.
The 6-foot-4, 205-pound prospect saw a lot to like at Washington, his teammate Dane Crane just committed on Sunday and it sounds like O'Brien could be close in a matter of days.
"I saw everything," O'Brien said. "I saw the whole campus, I saw the stadium and everything was awesome. I really like Washington a lot right now.
"Not just everything they have going for them with the new stadium and everything but my position coach, coach (Peter) Sirmon, I really like the guy a lot. Coach (Steve) Sarkisian is a great guy and all of them were really cool. All the players are great.
"I love the weather in Seattle and the city, too."
Washington likes O'Brien as an outside linebacker and defensive back hybrid and he's definitely open to playing that position.
For the Santa Margarita standout, it seems everything fit well at Washington and it has to be considered a frontrunner as his recruitment continues.
"I definitely like it a lot," O'Brien said. "Now it's more of a mix between outside linebacker and defensive back, that's where they want to play me and that's where I want to play."
