Nico Falah remains firmly committed to USC but after an impressive in-home visit with Washington this week the Bellflower (Calif.) St. John Bosco offensive tackle plans to visit there next weekend.
The 6-foot-4, 267-pound four-star standout said Washington sent three coaches for the visit and he was impressed with their presentation.
The pitch from the staff meant something to Falah, who's been committed to the Trojans since July, and he wants to take a closer look.

"They brought three coaches, the area recruiting coach, the offensive coordinator and the receivers coach and they showed they really wanted me bad," Falah said.
"They said they need me up there. They said other schools want me but they actually need me up there. I could play right away if I work hard and that's pretty much what they told me.
"They're really, really likeable. They're all young coaches. You can tell the players like them and how they coach and they're good people."
Before the in-home visit, Falah admitted he didn't know much about Washington's program but he's definitely intrigued now.
While it's still unlikely Falah will switch his pledge from USC - he's said numerous times he wants to still play for the Trojans and doesn't plan any changes - another visit does put things at greater risk.
Falah, rated as the No. 16 offensive tackle and the No. 172 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, recently visited Oregon as well.
"I didn't really know much about Washington," Falah said. "They gave me a whole PowerPoint presentation about the program and I'm looking forward to seeing it in person."
