Austin Seferian- Jenkins announced his decision to play football at the University of Washington at a public welcome press conference held at the Gig Harbor Yacht Club this evening. Seferian-Jenkins is one of the top TE recruits in the country. He picked Washington over Texas, UCLA, Alabama, and Florida.
Sark is doing a great job fencing off the state this year. WR Kasen Williams and DT Danny Shelton are the last two big targets left on the in state board and both are considered to be Washington leans at this point. Williams will announce his decision later this month.
"I committed to UW because it was the right fit. I think it is the number one program in the country and is rising. There are great coaches, people and players."
"It was to build hype for UW, said Seferian-Jenkins. No matter what school I went to, no matter what they did or how they did it, it didn't change how I felt. Washington is the best school in the country. I chose them over everyone in the country. I'm ready to get some roses for Washington and UW fans."
"I have been talking to a lot of the guys I met over the summer...I have a lot of them lined up. This is going to be a great class."
"I feel Washington has the best coaching staff in the country, no doubt about it," said Seferian-Jenkins. "That's why great players are coming and more players are there already."

Big Ten Championship Game
Nobody was surprised that the Big Ten championship game will be held in Indianapolis. Delaney also comments that they should have their divisions drawn up soon.
"I wanted to get it accomplished so we could tell our television partner where it would be broadcast," Delany said. "We know the people in Indianapolis, we know they have a great facility, we know they are teed up to have the Super Bowl in 2012 and I said to athletic directors, we're not making this a long-term commitment. It makes a lot of logistical sense."
Big Blue about to be Black and Blue
The NCAA questioned Rich Rodriguez and staff from Michigan for over seven and a half hours in a Seattle hotel on Saturday.
The NCAA has accused Michigan of five major rules violations related to practices and workouts.

The school admitted in May it was guilty of four violations, but spent Saturday challenging the allegation that Rodriguez failed to promote an atmosphere of compliance.
