Tight end surprised by offer

Henry Mondeaux only started to get in touch with Washington about a week ago but after attending its junior day last weekend the Portland (Ore.) Jesuit tight end landed his second offer.
It was a complete surprise to Mondeaux, a 6-foot-4, 245-pound prospect, since he had no clue an offer would be forthcoming on his visit.
Mondeaux said his trip to Washington was outstanding and that his conversations with tight ends coach Jordan Paopao especially stood out.

"I was pretty surprised," Mondeaux said. "The first contact I had was when they invited me to their junior day like a week prior and I called the tight ends coach and I really didn't get the sense they were going to offer me so it was a big surprise.
"The coaches were really awesome. They were all fired up the whole time and I could tell they were really nice people. The tight ends coach is really down-to-earth and I can relate to him because he's a younger coach so that's good."
His trip to Washington went well but Mondeaux said because things are still fresh with the Huskies it's still a little too early to name any favorites.
"It's a little too early to tell but I really enjoyed my trip," Mondeaux said.
Washington and Oregon State have offered Mondeaux so far and he said Arizona State and Cal are showing the most interest at this point.
Oregon has expressed interest in Mondeaux camping this summer because that coaching staff is unsure whether they like him more on offense or defense.
UCLA, Washington State, Air Force and others are also showing interest in the Portland Jesuit standout.
