Lakes standout offensive tackle Zach Banner was one of several players who made their official visits to Montlake this weekend. has a trip report from Banner.

From the story ...

"I have to give it a 12," Banner said. "I saw what it was like to be a U-Dub Husky. I think that's the one thing I had never seen before, never got the full feeling. For 48 hours, you're part of the team; you can relate to everybody and talk with everybody and joke around. It was a good experience."
