Bellarmine College Prep quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels came away impressed with Washington and Boise State after recruiting visits to the schools last weekend.

"The Washington visit was awesome," Carta-Samuels said in a text message. "I had a ton of fun. It was sweet. Great facilities. Great coaches. Just an awesome environment."

And Boise State?

"That was a really fun trip, too," he said. "The coaching staff there is really young and full of energy. Facilities were awesome. It's gonna be a tough decision, but I'll make sure it's the right one."

Carta-Samuels put himself back on the recruiting market last week after James Franklin stepped down at Vanderbilt to become Penn State's coach. Carta-Samuels had committed to Vanderbilt in summer 2012.

The four-star (out of five) player said last week that he still planned to make an official visit to Vanderbilt this weekend. But that trip is now up in the air, Carta-Samuels said, adding that he wanted to talk to his parents to "see if I am gonna make a decision during this week or I should make the trip."

The first day to sign is Feb. 5.
