The latest news and analysis on the Montlake Dawgs.

When’s the last time UW signed three players from the same school?

That question arose during yesterday’s live chat given that the Huskies already have commitments from three Lakes High players for the Class of 2010 — WR Jamaal Kearse, LB Darius Waters and DT Sione Potoae. Kearse committed this week.
The answer, as one reader noted, was 1993 when the Huskies actually signed four players from O’Dea High in Seattle.
The four were LB Jayson Bass, DT Sekou Wiggs (whose younger brother Fred is now a walk-on LB), DB Kyle Roberts and DB Jovan McCoy.
Here’s a story from the day they signed, noting that O’Dea actually had five players sign D-I letters that day — the other Charles Young, went to Stanford.
Of the four, only Wiggs and Roberts lettered, with Bass deciding to play pro baseball, instead, and McCoy retiring after three years after suffering a shoulder injury.
I actually did a “Where are they now?” type piece on the Class of 1993 on the 10-year anniversary of its signing which updated what happened to each player. Here is the sidebar to that story which included updates not only those four but all of the members of UW’s Class of 1993.
UW also signed three players from Puyallup High in 1989 — WR Joe Kralik, QB Billy Joe Hobert and OL Tom Gallagher. All became starters for essentially two years of their careers, Kralik and Gallagher lettering three years, Hobert one (it used to be harder to get a letter).
