The Huskies finally got a commitment today from Crespi High quarterback Kevin Prince.
Prince said he made his decision last week but was hoping to wait until this week and commit to UW along with his high school teammate, safety E.J. Woods, who is committed to UCLA but is now also considering UW with the Bruins coaching situation uncertain.
But Prince said Woods needs a little more time --- apparently wanting to see who the new coach will be --- and that Prince "wanted to make it public for myself'' so he decided to tell reporters today.
The 6-2, 205-pounder says no matter what happens, he won't be enrolling at UW in time for the 2008 season. He either plans to grayshirt next season so that he can continue to recover from a knee injury --- he tore his ACL this fall--- and mature more, or will take a Mormon mission and not enroll until 2010.
"That's the second decision I have to make now,'' he said, saying UW assistant Chris Tormey --- who handled his recruiting --- told him he has until the spring to decide.
Prince is the third QB to commit to UW this year, but as detailed won't count in this class.
Prince, who is more of a pass-first QB but with solid mobility, said he liked the school and atmosphere at UW and also was impressed with the direction of the program, saying he thought it a good sign the team was able to bring in the kind of recruiting class it has despite this season's record.
"That's real encouraging,'' he said.
