I’ve had a busy Saturday of travel and family activities and turn on the computer to see that the Huskies have been even busier.
As it appears most of you know, reading through the comments, the Huskies have received three commitments today (or at least, public acknowledgement of all three has come today). The three commitments give UW 11 for the Class of 2011.
One is from a key in-state target, receiver Michael Rector of Bellarmine Prep in Tacoma.
The 6-foot, 170-pounder is rated as a three-star recruit by Scout.com and last month finished second in the state finals in the 200 (21.65) and third in the 100 (10.86). He had 67 catches and 11 touchdowns last season for Bellarmine as a junior.
Rector told Dawgman.com that he actually committed earlier this week. He said he’d intended to wait a little while longer but that after UW got a commitment recently from Dwayne Washington of Gahr High in Cerritos, Calif., he figured he’d better commit to UW.
Rector is the third in-state player to commit, joining quarterback Jeff Lindquist of Mercer Island and offensive lineman Nathan Dean of Juanita.
Taylor, the younger brother of Arizona State receiver Kerry Taylor, is listed at 6-foot, 175 pounds and was listed as having offers from Arizona, Arizona State, Notre Dame and Stanford.
UW now has commitments from three receivers and could be done at that spot as the Huskies will also bring in some highly touted true freshmen this season including Kasen Williams of Skyline.
Rogers was also listed as having an offer from Air Force.
Commitments are non-binding until letter-of-intent day on Feb. 1.
