Kicker flips from Washington State, commits to Huskies

Tristan Vizcaino, a kicker out of La Verne, Calif., has committed to the Huskies, switching his verbal commitment from Washington State.

Vizcaino is the 11th known recruit to commit to UW for the Class of 2014 (and 12th counting grayshirt Jaimie Bryant of Tumwater.)

“I committed to Washington,” Vizcaino told Dawgman.com. “After I got home from my visit and I was able to speak to my parents, I just knew Washington was the right school for me.

“I didn’t want to prolong things with Washington State, so I called them right away and told them of my decision. They weren’t happy and were pretty upset, which is understandable, but I have to do what is best for┬áme and for the next four years of my life, and Washington was where I wanted to be.”

The Huskies were in need a kicker/punter after the graduation of Travis Coons. The status of freshman Cameron Van Winkle is uncertain after he missed the second half of the 2013 season with a back injury.
