Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft blue-chip four-star offensive lineman Darrion Weems of Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft has a busy month of January lined up.
After playing in the Offense-Defense All-America Bowl on Jan. 4, he will head off on his first official visit to Washington on Jan. 5.
It's his first of four visits.

"After Washington, I've got Florida on Jan. 12, Oregon on Jan. 19 and Arizona on Jan. 26," Weems said. "I was also looking at Colorado and Nebraska, but we just kind of fell out of contact with each other. They just didn't seem as interested as the other teams."
Weems has said in the past that Oregon is one of his top teams, and that hasn't changed as he's moved later into the process.
"I feel really comfortable with the coaches and players at Oregon," he said. "I've been up there before, and I already know the lay of the land. I think the offense they run would also be a nice fit for me. It's a lot like what we do here at Taft."
But Weems does have positive things to say about the other teams on his list.
"I know Washington didn't have the best year, but they have a really young quarterback coming along," he said. "They've also recruited a lot of really good running backs, and they need somebody to come in and block for them.
"I picked Florida to be the national title game back in August, so it's good to see that they're winning like I thought they would. It's a little bit farther away from my friends and family, but it'd be an exciting place to go. With Arizona, I really like the coaches and how it's close to home, but not too far away."
