Washington trip impresses Lindquist

Jeff Lindquist attended Washington's junior day this past weekend and got to break down some film with offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Dough Nussmeier, an important step as the Mercer Island, Wash., prospect gets closer to a decision.
"It was good," Lindquist said. "We went through my film which was fun for me because he pointed out things I hadn't noticed before.
"I like him a lot and I have a good relationship with him. It was fun to talk some football with him. It was the first time I had done that with him."
Lindquist, who has offers from Washington, Stanford and Washington State, also got to sit down with his parents and coach Steve Sarkisian to talk about what a future with the Huskies would look like. It was apparently a candid conversation which Lindquist found rewarding.
"We talked about the program and what he thinks would be beneficial if I went there," Lindquist said. "We went over some pros and cons. We further got into the good and bad if I were to go there. It was a really good discussion."
Lindquist said Washington and Stanford stand out the most in his recruitment and he plans to make a decision sometime around May.
Before his commitment, the Mercer Island standout said he'd like to visit with the Cardinal. Other schools are also in contention but Lindquist is still sitting with three offers.
"My decision in terms of time is still the same, I'm looking to make it by May," Lindquist said.
"In terms of schools gaining it's still where it was. There are a few schools I'm interested in and I don't think I'm going to do the tour and pick up more offers. I know which schools stand out to me."
In his junior season, Lindquist finished with 1,995 passing yards and 15 touchdowns and rushed for about 1,000 yards with 18 scores.
