Scout.com spoke briefly to Honolulu (HI) St. Louis OL Paulay Asiata - he took a sick day - but he did let us know that he's made his college decision. The 6-foot-5, 290-pound OL verbally committed to the Washington Huskies Monday over an offer and visit to Colorado.

"I'm going to U-Dub," Asiata told Scout, saying that he broke the good news to Washington coaches Steve Sarkisian and Johnny Nansen a little earlier in the day.

Washington was his leading school after his mid-December trip to Seattle, but he made sure he had something to compare it to. He took his other official visit to Boulder this past weekend, but apparently it wasn't enough to sway Asiata from his earlier thoughts.

"They were the best fit for me," he said of his decision to pick the Huskies.

Asked if he was going to take one more trip this upcoming weekend, Asiata said no.

Asiata said he'll make his decision official on February 2nd when he puts paper to pen on a UW letter of intent.

We'll have more from Asiata when he's feeling better.
