Michael Rector had a huge junior season at Tacoma (Wash.) Bellarmine Prep and now the 6-foot-1, 170-pound recruit is starting to hear from more schools and seeing what he likes and dislikes.
Last weekend, Rector visited Washington for its junior day and although he doesn't have any leaders at this point in his recruitment the Huskies did make a good impression during his visit.
"I liked it," Rector said. "It was valuable to get up there and meet all the coaches and get more in-depth with details about the football team so that was really cool. I think I met the whole coaching staff and we got some one-on-one time.

"They're trying to get to big bowl games and then ultimately get to the national championship. That's what they told us, that their job is to win big games and I like that about the coaching staff.
"(Washington) is not a favorite but they're not in the back, either. They're in the middle. I like them. They're close to home and it's a good school. There really isn't a leader among the group of schools recruiting me."
Stanford, Boise State, Oregon, Washington State and others are showing interest in Rector, who finished with 67 receptions for 1,078 yards and 11 touchdowns in his junior season. He's also a standout on defense and special teams.
Since it's still so early, Rector said he has no favorites.
"I have schools that I like but there's no place where if they offered me I would commit on the spot," Rector said. "It's not just my decision. It's my family's decision altogether."
Up next for Rector is a stop at the Badger Sports 7-on-7 event in Las Vegas later this month and the Bellarmine Prep standout also plans to attend Washington's camp this summer. His complete camp schedule is not finalized.
