Four-star running back Deontae Cooper (Perris, Calif./Citrus Hill) has committed to sign with the Pac 10 Huskies, ESPN's Greg Biggins reports. Prior to making this decision, Cooper stated he wanted to visit Nebraska, Arizona State and Fresno State.
"I know I said I wanted to wait but the more I thought about it, it just seemed like Washington was the best fit for me," he said. "I talked things over with my dad and my coaches and we looked at all my options and I don't think I could find a better situation than Washington."
Other programs such as Colorado, Stanford, Utah and Arizona offered the nation's No. 19-rated rusher, who rushed for 2,948 yards and 43 touchdowns as a junior.
(If Greg Biggins says this one is confirmed and he has quotes from the kid you can put it up on the board! You can't have too many four star running backs in your program. Nice job Sark!)
