Scout.com says Potoae reaffirms commitment to Huskies

In more good personnel news for the Huskies, Scout.com is reporting tonight in a free story on its site that Lakes High defensive tackle Sione Potoae has reaffirmed his commitment to UW.
The 6-3, 285-pound Potoae is regarded as maybe the best defensive line prospect in the state this year and last March gave an initial commitment to the Huskies. But he recently said he wanted to at least look around and took a trip to USC last weekend.
But Scout quotes Lakes High coach Dave Miller saying that Potoae has decided to end all of his recruiting and reaffirm his desire to sign with UW in February.
That gives UW 25 apparently solid commits for the Class of 2010. The Huskies are expected to bring in 30 players or so. However, two or three are expected to enroll early and a couple may enroll late to make the scholarship numbers work.
Also, players who enroll early do not need to sign letters-of-intent, which work mostly to bind a player to a school for his first year, but instead can sign scholarship papers — that’s what Chris Polk did a couple of years ago. Signing scholarship papers and then enrolling works the same as an LOI to commit a player to a school for a year.
