Here is the final official list of players who signed today as well as comments as released by the school and available at GoHuskies.com..
SEATTLE – A total of 26 student-athletes have signed national letters of intent or financial aid agreements to enroll at the University of Washington and play football for the Huskies, head coach Tyrone Willingham announced today.
All 26 signees were high school seniors during the 2007 season. Each student-athlete in the group will be expected to participate in the 2008 season, while one (Chris Polk) enrolled for the start of the winter quarter in January and is currently enrolled at the UW.
Of the players in this year's recruiting class, 12 hail from Washington, nine are from California and one each come from Hawaii, Idaho, Arizona, Oregon and Louisiana.
"I've very pleased with this group of young men," said Willingham. "I think our coaching staff and our players did a great job in terms of addressing the needs of our team and in terms of getting so many standout student-athletes from here in the state of Washington. I’m looking forward to getting this group on campus in the fall and preparing for the 2008 season.''
Following its season opener Aug. 30 at Oregon, Washington will return to Seattle for three consecutive home games against BYU (Sept. 6), Oklahoma (Sept. 13) and Stanford. The Huskies will also play Oregon State, Notre Dame, Arizona State and UCLA during its seven-game home schedule. Away contests include games at Arizona, USC, Washington State and California.
Deposits for new season tickets are currently being accepted through the Husky Athletic Ticket Office by calling (206) 543-2200 or online through GoHuskies.com. Season ticket renewal forms were recently distributed through the mail and are due for return by early March.
