Washington picked up a couple of new verbals last night from Jordan HS in Los Angeles.
John Timu is a 6'2 195 lb QB, listed as a WR, but will play DB at Washington. The other Pac 10 school to offer him thus far was Oregon. Princeton Fuimaono is a 6'1 205 lb WLB who has yet to be reviewed by Scout.com.
Jordan HS is located in the Watts neighborhood of Los Angeles. How many times did Tyrone Willingham pull a kid out of Central LA? What this means is Washington is making huge progress recruiting the inner city area of LA, using the contacts Sark and Holt developed while coaching at USC.
We have spoken a lot about rebuilding the traditional Husky toughness that was legendary under Owens, James and Lambo. Bringing in kids from the inner city is a big piece of that puzzle.
Washington now has 15 verbals secured for the 2010 class and is expected to take a full class of 25. Should UW identify a junior college lineman or two who can qualify for winter quarter admission, they may end up exceeding the 25-man limit in this class.
