Woodland Hills (Calif.) Taft wide out Chris Wellington was supposed to visit Washington this past weekend. The Huskies canceled a week before the visit so the athlete decided to check out Nevada instead.
Wellington, 6-2, 200 pounds took the last minute visit after assistant coach Derwin Henderson set something up just a few days prior to the trip.
"We got the word that Washington was backing out kind of late in the process," Henderson said. "They said they were filled up on receivers but they still wanted Jamere to trip in, which didn't make a lot of sense to us. Jamere canceled that visit now, he didn't like how Chris was treated so canceling the visit with Chris caused them to lose out on both of our receivers.
"Nevada has been recruiting Chris for a long time so we talked to them late last week and they said they would still trip him in. I haven't talked to him yet but I still think it's going to be tough for anyone to beat out Arizona. He'll visit Oregon State this weekend (Jan. 13) and then Arizona will be (Jan. 20). He should be ready to decide after that visit to Arizona."
On the season, Wellington caught 24 balls for 460 yards and four touchdowns. He added 29 tackles and two picks on defense but would prefer to play receiver in college.
