"Washington used to be a powerhouse. They lost it for a few years, but now we’re bringing it back. USC, they’ve always been a competitive school and have always brought in good players. Everybody thinks they are going to be the top school – but me personally I want to be part of a legacy instead of just being part of a tradition, instead of being ‘oh, he was just a part of USC, but they’ve always good’. I want to be a part of, ‘he was there when Washington was up and coming, and he was part of the group that won their first Rose Bowl after they went 0-12. I want to build something, build a legacy and make Washington a powerhouse like it was in the early 90’s."
