Quarterback Isaac Dotson (Newport, Wash./Newport) is familiar with the Nevada campus, having visited the Wolfpack twice in the offseason. But this weekend offered the 6-foot-3, 203-pound signal-caller another look at his future home, as Dotson joined several recruits on official visits to Nevada.
"This time was cool," Dotson said. "The past two times, school wasn't in session, so it was cool to be able to see the campus full of people and experience what it was like during the school year."
Dotson said he enjoyed the tour of the facilities and was impressed with the game against Boise State.
"It was really cool to watch and get a feel for the atmosphere there," he said. "The fans were really supportive and it made me that much more excited to get there. The offense is a perfect fit for me, with the option offense and the ability to run their quarterback. The pistol offense is something really intriguing for me, so it was great to see how it was executed on the field and to be there for a game."
Dotson said the visit was first and foremost for himself, to give him another opportunity to get a feel for the campus and the program, but he also made sure to spend at least a little time with some of the other visitors. They included athlete Johnny Ragin (Wilsonville, Ore./Wilsonville), linebacker Jeff Camilli (Shingle Spring, Calif./Ponderosa) and defensive back Charles Okonkwo (Fontana, Calif./Summit), among others.
"I was definitely trying to talk to them to get a feel for what they were thinking," Dotson said. "I got a lot of positive feedback, and that's a good sign."
