The good news is that the Huskies are hosting six studs this weekend. The bad news is one of them isn't named Greg Townsend.
DT Uriah Grant Fullerton JC...Obviously Grant fills a need at the three technique. If UW offers him this weekend he will likely be a Dawg.
CB Aaron Garbutt Fullerton JC....He has an offer but UW is also looking at quite a few other DB's between now and signing day.
CB Marcus Peter McClymonds HS Oakland, Ca...Three quarters of the Pac 12 has offered this kid. Like I said above UW is looking at quite a few DB's right now. Hard to say where Marcus ranks on the UW board.
OL Paulay Asiata St Louis HS Honolulu, Hi...Washington is in a very good place right now with the top recruit in Hawaii. He would obviously be a big get in a year that isn't exactly loaded with top tier offensive linemen.
Ath Dezden Petty Gardena HS Gardena, Ca...Petty is listed as a two star FB in the database. He is a San Diego State verbal who the Huskies are taking a long look at. He has good size and they must like something on the tape. Elijah Penny and Melvin Davis are the same type of athlete and the Huskies had to drop them because of grades.
OL Siosifa Tufunga Jordan HS Long Beach, Ca...This sleeper committed to Washington during the summer. He is the lone commit visiting this weekend. He moves really well for a big man but he is pretty green. Give him a couple of years in the weight room and like James Atoe from last season you may have something special.
Holiday Bowl Tickets
The University of Washington announced yesterday that they had sold 11,000 tickets to the game on January 30th. That is exceptional when you factor in the lack of flights available during the week of the game and the inflated price of the airline tickets. If you want to go to the game don't despair. There are always extra tickets available on the day of the game.
(Note: According to a report in Bob Condotta's blog there are still tickets reserved for season ticket holders.)
