Offensive lineman Quinton Washington (6-4 315) of Timberland has eliminated two schools from consideration, according to his coach Art Craig. Washington has cut Clemson and Tennessee and will make his decision from USC, Michigan and Miami.

USC and Michigan are the top two but he will visit Miami this weekend.

"He did talk to coach Spurrier on the phone today," Craig said Thursday afternoon.

Spurrier had his in-person visit with Washington and his parents Wednesday.

"It seemed to go well," Craig said. "They talked here at school and he met his mom and dad. Everything seemed to be positive. Michigan and South Carolina have done an outstanding job recruiting him. I wouldn't want to be him right now."

Craig said he and Washington will sit down Monday and try to hammer out a final decision.

"He's trying to look at things other than football," Craig said. "He's trying to set himself up for the rest of his life."
