OL Quinton Washington (6-4 315) of Timberland made an official visit to Michigan last weekend, and the trip gave him something to think about according to his coach who joined him on the visit. "People in the stands were chanting Quinton's name," coach Art Craig said. "Q, wear the blue, wear the blue. And it wasn't rehearsed. I've got to give coach Rodriguez and his staff a hand. They did a job. They were genuine with what they wanted. To my understanding, he's their number one lineman they are going after in the nation. That's point blank what coach Rodriguez told me Friday night." Craig said Washington took everything in and was very impressed. "He felt very at ease with them," he said. "He was very impressed with the facilities. They are building a second indoor facility. They are adding 100 skyboxes. They just opened a new academic learning center. He's a man of few words. When I asked him if they are in there with him, he said, coach, how can they not be?" Washington has not scheduled any other official visits but Craig said USC and Clemson each will get one. He's made unofficial visits to both in state schools. Craig said Alabama, Tennessee and Miami are being considered for the remaining official visits. Washington might take an unofficial visit to Tennessee this weekend. Tennessee is showing interest in junior QB Cody Craigh, the coach's son.
