Washington is showing much more interest in Jayme Otomewo and the Los Angeles (Calif.) Dorsey defensive back is excited about the Huskies and hearing more from that coaching staff.
The 6-foot-2, 190-pound three-star prospect said he's talked with Washington assistant coach Keith Heyward and he's supposed to stop by the Dorsey-Mission Hills Alemany matchup this weekend.
"Washington is interested in me," Otomewo said.
"I talked to coach Heyward. He didn't offer or anything but he was saying they're going to be watching the Alemany game that's coming up this week. They're coming to watch the game and based off my performance I could get an offer.
"That's great to hear. It makes me happy and keeps me motivated to work hard in practice. Hopefully I can go out and play a great game."
Otomewo was expected to attend the UCLA-Houston game this past weekend but he did not make it to the Rose Bowl. The Bruins have been in contact in recent weeks but have not offered yet.
"The last time I heard from UCLA was my first game," Otomewo said. "They said they were looking at me, they were still looking at me and to keep doing what I've been doing. Hopefully the offer will come."
The only official visit Otomewo has planned at this point is to Arizona State sometime in October.
He and Los Angeles Dorsey teammate Daquawn Brown still plan to play together in college and there is a good chance they can get to Arizona State during the same weekend.
So far, Otomewo has landed offers from Arizona State, Colorado, Fresno State, Ohio and San Jose State.
Playing with Brown at the next level has been the plan for a long time and Otomewo said it's still in the works.
"The plan is for me and Cheetah to play at the same school," Otomewo said.
