Commits keep coming

The Huskies are now up to 17 on commits for the Class of 2007.
The latest came today from cornerback Jared Campbell of Overland High School in Aurora, Colo.
Campbell feels a vital need as the Huskies need cornerbacks with the graduation of Dashon Goldson and Matt Fountaine.
“That’s what coach (Tyrone) Willingham, was telling me that I got a chance to come in and play because they need corners right now,” Campbell said Wednesday night shortly after commiting.
Campbell is the second cornerback to commit, joining Rainier Beach’s Vonzell McDowell.
Campbell, listed at 6-foot, 190 pounds, is the third player from Colorado, joining receivers Alvin Logan and Devin Aguilar. UW is also in the running for another Colorado player, receiver Drew Davis.
Campbell said all four, all from either Denver or Aurora, have known each other since they were kids, and that knowing Logan and Aguilar were already in the fold influenced his decision. He also had offers from Colorado, Colorado State, Utah and Wyoming.
“That played a part knowing that I already have friends out there,” Campbell said.
What he also said played a part was Willingham and his philosophy on developing as both a person and a player while in college, something he said was especially important to his parents.
“He put it to me that it’s great for players to want to go to the NFL, but not every player is going to to go to the NFL so as a coach, you have to create opportunities for players if they don’t go to the NFL,” Campbell said.
He said he wants to go into broadcast journalism someday.
