At long last, Jojo Mathis is a Husky. He originally committed back in 2011, but backed off of that to go through the process and weigh his options. He correctly came to the realization that Washington was the best place for him. If the offer sheet is to be believed, then wow. You know a kid is talented when you're getting an Army All American, but when a kid has the opportunity to play for Alabama or Michigan or Oklahoma or pretty much anywhere he wants to, it speaks volumes about this recruiting staff that he declined the advances of those other schools.

The interesting thing to watch about Mathis will be where he ends up playing. He's already got the size to walk into practice and compete with UW's current defensive ends, but if he gets into a college weight room and puts on some mass he could very easily move inside or become a hybrid inside/outside guy (and we know how Justin Wilcox loves those types of players). Furthermore, Alabama was reportedly recruiting him to play inside linebacker, so maybe the coaching staff takes note of that and tries him there. Alabama's doing something (everything) right, so taking some ideas from them couldn't hurt.
