The Huskies have reportedly gotten yet another commitment, this from linebacker Bradly Roussel of Baton Rouge, La.
Roussel would be the 23rd commit for the Class of 2008, though as we've detailed, the Huskies may have room for more than two more commits with Chris Polk enrolling early.
Roussel is projected as a middle linebacker.
He was recently rated as the No. 33 prospect in the state of Louisiana by DandyDon.com. But remember that Louisiana typically produces a lot more players than most states.
UPDATE 3:45 P.M. --- I was able to talk with Roussel's father, Holenn, who confirmed that his son has committed to UW.
He said UW linebackers coach Chris Tormey spent two-and-a-half hours in their home on Monday and that when it was over his son said "I want to play for him. Of all the coaches he had met, he wanted to play for him, and for Tyrone Willingham.''
There's no apparent tie to the family and UW other than the normal recruiting process --- the family got a recruiting letter, sent back some film, UW was intrigued, and it went from there. "It was a BCS school, and coach Tormey did a good job recruiting him,'' Holenn Rousell said. "They really hit it off pretty good.''
And while there are rumors about what may happen with UW's defensive coaching staff, Holenn Rousell said he has no doubt his son will be playing for Tormey.
"The coaching staff is going to stay intact from what I understand,'' he said. "That won't be an issue.''
