Huskies get a couple commits

The Huskies have gotten commitments from at least two of the six players who were expected to visit campus this weekend.
Willie Griffin, a running back from Oakland, Calif., said earlier tonight that he has committed to UW and will not take any other trips. He had also been considering the likes of Oregon State, Utah and Colorado but said he’s fully committed to UW.
“They were my first offer and they’ve been on me ever since,” said Griffin. “I came into it (his visit this weekend) knowing what I was going to do.”
Here’s a scouting profile of Griffin.
Also making a commitment to UW today is linebacker/fullback Austin Sylvester of The Hun School in Princeton, N.J. Sylvester is a particularly interesting story as he is from Reno and had an offer to walk-on to UW a year ago but decided to attend a prep school for a year instead in an effort to earn a full-ride. It worked out as the Huskies came through with an offer this year.
“There were some other people I was talking to but Washington is the place for me,” Sylvester said tonight. “I really, really liked it there and didn’t really have a desire to look anywhere else.”
Here’s a profile of Sylvester.
Sylvester said he talked with UW coaches about playing either linebacker or fullback based on where he is needed most.
He turns 19 in April and said he hopes to get done at The Hun School so that he can enroll at UW in time for spring football.
The Huskies now have 13 commitments for the Class of 2007.
UPDATE – Here’s an interesting story on Griffin’s performance this weekend for McClymonds in the initial Transbay Bowl. He had 191 yards and four touchdowns on 20 carries in an 78-37 win over Lincoln High.
McClymonds is a school best-known as the alma mater of Bill Russell (the basketball player), Frank Robinson and M.C. Hammer, among others.
