And I almost wrote "singing'' at first, though that might be accurate, as well, when it comes to the UW coaches, who will be basking in the glow of one of the school's best recruiting classes in years.
According to the school web site, 14 players have already signed their letters (see the list here) none of them a surprise.
The letters already in are --- Senio Kelemete, Cody Bruns, Luther Leonard, Chris Polk, Allen Carroll, Terrence Dailey, Justin Glenn, Jermaine Kearse, Adam Long, Craig Noble, Bradly Roussel, Drew Schaefer, Alameda Ta'amu and Terence Thomas.
In fact, should be few, if any, surprises today as the last unsettled business appeared to be Kevin Prince's situation, solved yesterday when he announced he's going to UCLA.
UW coach Tyrone Willingham will meet the media at 2:30 p.m., the first time he can talk about any of the recruits. The school fully expects that all letters will be in by then.
Not sure if Willingham will have any other news today but there are rumblings that he could be close to filling both of the assistant coach jobs that are vacant --- running backs and tight ends/special teams. Rumor is that former Syracuse offensive coordinator Brian White was in town last weekend interviewing for the running backs job.
I wrote this story today previewing UW"s recruiting class also noting that as excited as everyone is today, the real proof of how good a class it will be comes in 3-4-5 years when we see how it all turns out.
I'll also pass along this story that several of you passed on to me from the Idaho Statesman today about UW signee Thomas.
