QB to come in early?

Some interesting recruiting news out there tonight.
First, Dawgman.com is reporting that quarterback Ronnie Fouch will graduate from high school in time to enroll at UW this spring and be available for spring practice.
Fouch has given a commitment to sign with UW in February.
That will add some desperately needed depth as the Huskies have just two returning QBs in Jake Locker and Carl Bonnell with Johnny DuRocher almost certainly done with football.
Players graduating from high school early to enroll in college is a growing trend in college athletics — USC QB John David Booty is one of the most notable. But I don’t ever remember it happening at UW.
DuRocher, by the way, has been released from the hospital and may meet the media in the next day or so.
Also, both RealDawg and Dawgman are reporting that running back Brandon Johnson has given a commitment to UW, as well.
He would be the fourth running back to commit, again adding some needed depth at another thin position. Johnson reportedly also had offers from Oregon and Cal, so the Huskies apparently won out over some good competition for Johnson.
Web sites are also reporting a commitment from Kalani Aldrich, a lineman from Hawaii.
— A few of you have asked about UW players appearing in post-season all-star games. Official word from the school today is that there is nothing official, though some players (Goldson, White, Wallace, to name a few) are likely to get some invites. I did some checking and most of the games haven’t yet set official rosters.
