Practice here has just ended and I'm finishing up stories and other duties and will have a little wrapup later for the blog.
In the meantime, Craig Smith of our staff got ahold of the newest Husky commit, Aaron Grymes, and filed this story:
Aaron Grymes of West Seattle High School has accepted a University of Washington scholarship offer and said the Huskies envision him as a cornerback.
Grymes became the second cornerback to commit to the Huskies Monday as Kenneth Pinkard of South Oak Cliff High School in Dallas also committed.
Grymes, who played safety, wide receiver, running back and even quarterback last season as a junior, said being a Husky "has been my dream since I was little.''
Grymes, 5 feet 11, 160 pounds, said the Huskies extended the scholarship offer Saturday and he accepted Monday. He said Boise State, Oregon and Idaho had shown interest in him but hadn’t offered.
"Since coming to the games as a little kid, I've wanted to play here,'' Grymes said.
The Huskies will be getting a capable student in the fall of 2009 as Grymes has a 3.5 grade point. He said he has passed the SAT.
"He’s got a real love for the game,'' said West Seattle coach Davis Lura. "He works hard and he’s also a good student.''
Pinkard is 6 feet, 180 pounds. Like Grymes, he was offered a scholarship Saturday in Seattle and accepted Monday.
Pinkard and Grymes are the second and third players to commit to the UW as part of the 2009 recruiting class. The first was quarterback Keith Price of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif.
