Sarkisian to USC: What are the Recruits Saying?

New, 12 comments

UWDP aggregates what UW targets are saying about Steve Sarkisian being hired away to USC could mean to them.

Jayne Kamin-Oncea-USA TODAY Spor

Granted this just happened today, Sark and company leaving the UW could have some pretty big repercussions with the incoming recruiting class. Who knows what the future will hold for these kids? One can only hope that things cool down with some of these guys, and that whomever is hired by the UW as the new HC will do everything he can to keep them solid.

Remember, Dawgfans, these are initial reactions from kids who change girlfriends every day. Like Mr. Knibbe said, take it with a grain of salt ... or predict doom and gloom for the future of the program ... hey, everyone can be emotional, even if it's not that time of the month.

4-Star Recruit Kaleb McGary

"I asked him a while ago when the job first opened up, he told me he had no reason to leave and he had the chance when he left USC to coach there. It floors me. I feel as if I've been told one thing and he did another. I feel disappointed that it wasn't even mentioned to me and he was considering it after I was told he wouldn't leave." (247 Sports)

4-Star Wideout Rahshead Johnson

"I just decommitted from Washington for real this time." (247 Sports)

4-Star O-Lineman Zach Okun

"USC hiring Sark is huge for me. I've built a pretty solid relationship with him and his departure to USC really intrigues me."Okun has been heavily considering UW, as well as USC, so this bodes well for the Trojans, and not so much for the Dawgs ...

I have no clue what this means, but it seems like his commitment is still solid.
