Chase Blakley landed his Washington offer on June 29 during an unofficial visit when six 2013 prospects committed to the Huskies, one of the biggest Pac-12 recruiting stories this summer.
"I was the only one who didn't," Blakley said.
The 2014 tight end from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, did not make an early pledge but Washington is definitely high on his list and might be tough to beat moving forward.
Blakley, a 6-foot-4, 215-pound prospect, said there is a lot to like about the Huskies and he's going to keep a close watch on them through this season.
"I'm going to hold off on making a commitment," Blakley said. "I don't really know yet. I'm going to wait for this season to go by and just take it slow.
"It was a good day when I visited. That was the day they offered me. It was just a good atmosphere and it was super fun up there."
The coaching staff especially stood out to Blakley, who also has early offers from Idaho and Eastern Washington. The 2014 prospect said he was especially struck by how energetic the Huskies' staff was during his visit.
"They are awesome," Blakley said.
"They have a ton of energy. They are good coaches and they have fun. They get pumped up every day even though it's just practice."
More schools could get involved soon. The Idaho standout said Washington State and Boise State have kept in close touch through the summer and might be the next ones to offer.
