Apparently there is, according to Dawgman,com, which is reporting tonight that UW has gotten a commitment from lineman Jaimie Bryant of Tumwater High.
Here is Bryant’s Scout.com profile, listing him at 6-5, 275. He doesn’t have a rating yet because many juniors at this point simply have yet to be evaluated. He will apparently play defense.
Bryant was at a UW practice earlier this month and Dawgman.com reported that he gave the word to Husky coach Steve Sarkisian and defensive line coach Tosh Lupoi earlier today.
Scout.com recently rated Bryant as the No. 6 prospect in the state of Washington for the Class of 2013.
Here’s a good story on Bryant from ThurstonTalk.com last fall reporting that he has a 3.3 GPA.
And here’s another from NorthwestEliteIndex.com from January reporting that Bryant was already hearing from the likes of WSU, Oregon, Nebraska and Notre Dame along with UW.
Bryant is the second commit for UW’s Class of 2013, joining WR Sammie Long of Lakes. And as a lineman, he obviously fills a particular long-term need for the Huskies.
There hasn’t been a lot of recruiting news of late for UW other than Long’s commitment last month. But that will likely change soon as the Huskies are expected to entertain a dozen or so (or more — I don’t have an exact number) recruits at the Spring Game Saturday, which is doubling as Washington’s Junior Day. UW coaches will also hit the road recruiting following the Spring Game for the Spring Evaluation Period. It’s common for a few commits to start rolling in once those visits begin.
For now, UW has two known to be in the fold.
Here’s some video of Bryant from MaxPreps.com:
