Husky Recruiting Notes

New, 6 comments

June and July are the quietest months of the year in college football. Even with the current politics of realignment, playoff, and bowl system restructuring there won't be a ton of news going on until we get closer to August.

On the recruiting front the smart money is on the Huskies to get a verbal from one of the top QB recruits in the country. Troy Williams from Narbonne HS in Long Beach, California is scheduled to announce his decision on Friday and all indications is that the choice will be the University of Washington.

Williams is a great looking athlete who ranks as the 3rd best QB in the West and 14th best in the country. He threw for 3,247 yards and 34 touchdowns to 11 interceptions as a junior and was 200-for-317 for 2,597 yards and 23 touchdowns to nine interceptions as a 2010 sophomore.

Those are pretty good looking numbers for the four star recruit whose only knock may be his overall size (6'2 190). He is pretty accurate, has a strong arm, and he has the ability to move around well enough to stay out of trouble. I think it is easy for him to compare himself to Keith Price and realize how well he could fit into Sark's offense.

Arizona is really the only other school in the running for his services according to Greg Biggins of Scout. He really enjoyed his recent visit to Washington and a choice to go anywhere else would be quite the surprise.

Four star DE Joe Mathis has Washington in his top three along with Michigan and Nebraska. He committed to Washington last fall then decided to look around. This kid is a complete animal and would be a huge get because we really don't have anyone like him on the current roster.

DE/OLB Danny Mattingly from Mead HS picked up an offer from Alabama to go along with a previous ones he picked up from Notre Dame and Oklahoma. That pretty much means that the four star stud from Spokane has become a national recruit.
