OL Quinton Washington (6-4 315) of Timberland made an official visit to Miami over the weekend and is just about ready to make a final decision, perhaps as early as Monday aftternoon.
"I asked if this (the Miami visit) juggled this up a lot and he said not really," Timberland coach Art Craig said Sunday night. "He and I are going to sit down tomorrow and talk and hopefully there will be a decision tomorrow afternoon or Tuesday morning. He's not going to make a big deal of it. When he decides, he will let me know and I'll call all the proper people."
Craig said the decision appears to have boiled down to USC and Michigan.
"Michigan did such a good job recruiting him," he said. "What kept them in in play is their position coach recruited him the whole time. But, we had Hat Dat on Thursday and he wore a big Carolina cap. That didn't mean that much other than he picked up a hat and wore it, but he did seem at ease on Thursday, like he's made his mind up. He didn't seem real nervous."
Craig said he and Washington will meet early Monday afternoon.
