Washington's recruiting class is improving rapidly thanks to the new coaching staff.
Washington football recruiting has seen a major resurgence of late thanks to some key coaching hires by head coach Steve Sarkisian. The Huskies took defensive line coach and ace recruiter Tosh Lupoi away from Cal, and brought Justin Wilcox and Peter Sirmon over from the Tennssee Volunteers. Those moves paid immediate dividends, as the Huskies added five new commitments in the last week.
Among those new commitments are elite safety recruit Shaq Thompson, who was formerly committed to Cal, receiver Jordan Payton, also formerly of Cal, and receiver Jaydon Mickens, who was committed to USC for a time.
On signing day, Washington is looking to sign cornerback Brandon Beaver and defensive tackle Pio Vatuvei.
Husky fans will also be looking to see whether quarterback commitment Cyler Miles wavers. It's unlikely, but UW fans will not rest easy until the fax is in.
