This was announced yesterday but it’s pretty big news for the Washington Huskies football team so I’m going to add it despite the tardiness.
Eight high school athletes commited to play for the Huskies yesterday. Dawgman covered the story and you can read this and more about the news over there.
SEATTLE – The Washington Huskies took a huge bite out of the recruiting process Friday when seven top 2013 prospects and one top prospect for the class of 2014 verbally committed to the University of Washington football team. It was a move that catapulted the Huskies into the national recruiting spotlight on an historic day. The seven that committed were:
LB Caleb Tucker from Ouachita Parrish HS in Monroe, Louisiana
DT Elijah Qualls from Casa Grande HS in Petaluma, California
OT Poasi Moala from Rancho Verde HS in Moreno Valley, California
WR Demorea Stringfellow from Rancho Verde HS in Moreno Valley, California
RB Lavon Coleman from Lompoc, California
DL Andrew Basham from Lynnwood, Washington
DE Daeshon Hall from Lancaster, Texas
Committed QB Troy Williams from Narbonne High School in Harbor City, California was also there to lend his support.
And earlier in the morning, Rahshead Johnson, a 2014 receiver prospect from Jordan High School in Long Beach, California, verbally committed at Washington’s Rising Stars camp. HERE is the story on Johnson’s commitment.
