Fogerson commits to UW

Tom here, and I just got off the phone with O’Dea RB Johri Fogerson, who confirmed he has committed to Washington.
The Huskies were one of the last teams to come in with an offer to Fogerson, but he said, “I really wasn’t counting them out. I was just weighing my options.”
Proximity seemed to carry a lot of weight for Fogerson, who, as we wrote in an Oct. 24 story, is extremely close to his family, particularly his mother.
“My mom had a big role in it,” Fogerson said. “Also, coach Willingham’s a great person to play for because he’s going to be there for you.”
Fogerson said he committed to Ohio State last Saturday, but he decommitted because “it was just too far away from mom.”
Last Friday, Fogerson ran for 297 yards and four touchdowns in the Class 3A championship game. He said that performance not only brought an offer from the Huskies, but Louisville and Virginia Tech also entered the fray, too.
He said, Oregon, Oregon State, Cal and Arizona State had already offered him.
On the season, Fogerson ran for 2,545 yards and scored 36 touchdowns. He made the Star-Times all-area team, and he’ll surely be one of the favorites for the Times’ state player of the year award.
