Huskies lead for Crespi DE
In the loss to the Dons, Coates had five tackles, a forced fumble and a fumble recovery.
"I'm best at getting to the quarterback," Coates said humbly. "I can get the edge and with my quickness and 'get-off' I usually am a problem for tackles trying to block me."
Last season, before the injury to his left knee, Coates was a force for the Celts off the edge posting 39 tackles and eight sacks in 10 games.
That productivity and explosiveness led schools like Washington, Nevada, Colorado State, Iowa State and San Diego State to offer him and schools like Oregon, Oregon State, Arizona and Arizona State to put him on their list of players to watch this fall.
"Washington offered me in the spring and they are my leader," Coates said matter-of-factly. "Right now it's them and Iowa State at the top and Washington is the leader.
"Coach (Jimmie) Dougherty is the coach recruiting me for them and I like him a lot. I have heard great things about Seattle and how the campus is beautiful and the setting for gameday is really unique because it's right on the water.
"They've talked to me about the new stadium they are building and how they will play one year at the pro stadium (Qwest) and then move back into Husky Stadium and it will be state of the art and it's pretty exciting what they have going on up there."
Coates said when coaches could start calling September 1st, the Huskies and Iowa State were the two schools to pit in a call and he said both schools have talked about him visiting.
"Washington wants me to come up on my bye week which is the same week they play Stanford," Coates said. "I haven't firmed up a date with them, but that's what it is looking like and I don't know when I'm looking at visiting Iowa State, but I think that will be on a game week for them too."
Coates who has a 3.3 core GPA will take the ACT this weekend (September 10th) and then said he plans to set up his official visits.
"I thought I might be able to commit if I tripped to a school and really liked it, but my coach is telling me I should take at least two just so I can compare them to each other," Coates said. "I will probably do that, but I don't plan on taking all of my visits. Maybe there, but no more than that."
We'll continue to check back with Coates over the coming weeks and we'll update news as it changes.
