Joe Mixon, one of the nation’s running back recruits, is scheduled to make an official visit to UW this week.
“I’m going to visit Washington now,” Mixon told Scout.com. “Washington has always recruited me hard from the beginning and I always have a good time there. I’ve been there a few times already so I’m comfortable with the school, the coaches and I’m close with some of the players already. Shaq Thompson will be my host and we’re real cool and it will be good to see him again.”
“I know I’ll have a good time and it should be fun to see the new stadium,” he added. “Next week I have my visit with Oklahoma and then Wisconsin will be the following week. I still need to set up Oregon and I’m going to try and do that next week. They play UCLA (Oct. 26) so hopefully I can get up there that week, that will be a great game between those two teams.”
Mixon, from Freedom High in Oakley, Calif., is listed at 6-foot-2, 195 pounds. He is also considering Oklahoma, Cal, Wisconsin, Oregon, Florida and UCLA, among many other offers.
