Jeremy Castro commits to Washington 

July, 12, 2011
Oregon has always seemed like a solid leader for defensive lineman Jeremy Castro (Murrieta, Calif./ Vista Murrieta). In recent weeks however, Washington has made a strong push and was able to seal the deal with the talented athlete.

"I just committed this morning," Castro said. "I'm very excited to be a Dawg and glad to have this behind me. Coach [Demetrice] Martin was the one recruiting me and we have a great relationship. I like the direction the program is going and I really feel Washington has everything in place to win a championship.

"Oregon was leading early on for me but I started to feel more comfortable with Washington and felt like it was a better fit for me. I had some concerns about Oregon, it seems like they could be getting in trouble soon and honestly, they haven't been recruiting me very hard and haven't been returning my calls. The UW coaches talk to me all the time and made me feel like a priority and that meant a lot to me as well."
