Huskies2.jpgUPDATE: Washington coach Kevin McGuff announced his first bunch of national letter of intent signees on Thursday, which is being praised by scouts. Hazen High’s Airashay Rogers was the final to join the list. You can read more here.
———————————————————————————————————-
Washington isn’t done compiling names for its expected big 2012-13 class, but two players have made it official by signing national letters of intent.
Seattle Christian star Katie Collier, who’s battling leukemia, and Prairie High’s Heather Corral faxed in their commitments on Wednesday. Corral, whose sister Ashley is a senior G at No. 23 Southern California, tweeted a photo of the occasion on Twitter.
HCSign.jpg“It’s surreal. You commit, and you know where you’re going, but when you sign your name on the paper, it’s official,” the younger Corral told The (Vancouver) Columbian. “There’s no going back.”
The players, although dealing with health and knee issues, are good recruits for first-year UW coach Kevin McGuff. He’s also expecting Hazen High PG Airashay Rogers to sign with the program.
Washington defeated Concordia 99-40 on Tuesday in an exhibition game. C Regina Rogers (no relation) led with 28 points and 13 points against the undersized NAIA school. The Huskies open its 2011-12 season on Friday at 1 p.m. against UC Davis at Edmundson Pavilion.
The Aggies advanced to the NCAA tournament last season.
