A new Husky, Leon Jackson and more

First off, here’s our report on the latest player to cast his lot with the Huskies, Mt. Si running back Brandon Yakaboski.
With that link is also a link to a feature story we published recently on Yakaboski that will give you even greater insight into the newest Husky.
This gives the Huskies nine commitments for the Class of 2007, with UW expected to take 21-24 players overall. And all nine are high school players, six from the state of Washington, which is a little bit of a departure from last year’s class, which was heavier on junior-college players — seven overall. UW is likely to sign a few JC players, but this appears to have the makings of a class that will be more high school-oriented.
— Also, a few of you have asked about former Pasco High running back Leon Jackson. Here’s a link to an interview he gave the Tri-City Herald. (I was only able to make the audio work, but that worked well enough to understand what he was saying).
In the interview, Jackson says he talked with UW coach Tyrone Willingham about becoming a Husky “but unfortunately it didn’t work out.” He indicates it’s because UW had just taken another RB (surely, Michael Houston) and didn’t have the room or need for another transfer RB.
He says he’s now considering Idaho, Hawaii and Arizona Western JC.
— Finally, I’ve arrived in Eugene and it was a dark, wet drive down here. Conditions are sure to be a factor tomorrow.
The Huskies are staying in Salem, about an hour away, due to a lack of hotel space here. Interestingly, one reason there is little hotel space is that Arizona State, which plays Oregon State in Corvallis tomorrow, is staying here at the Valley River Inn, a place the Huskies often stay.
