Sarkisian had told reporters at Monday's news conference that one of his first tasks would be to begin recruiting. He did just that, visiting coaches at both Skyline and Bellevue High just two hours later.
Bellevue coach Butch Goncharoff said it was nice to see that kind of interest in the state high schools from UW, saying, "That hasn't maybe been that way in a while."
Said Taylor of his meeting with Sarkisian: "He was just really, really excited and talked about putting a fence around the state and wanting to make sure I knew how important it was to recruit in the state of Washington."
Said Sarkisian of the trips: "It's getting in front of them and getting a good handle to where they understand what we are trying to get done, where we are headed, and how important they are to it. We will develop a great relationship with them. They will have great access to our football offices, our practices, our game-day experience."
If this isn't the anti-Ty I don't know what is?
