Bellevue Beats Euless Trinity 31-24 in OT; Jack Shines

Hopefully Sark or one of his staff was able to carve out some time to watch this game. Because if he did, I've got to think that LB/RB Myles Jack has moved up the recruiting board. Although Jack is a verbal to UCLA, he has been a frequent visitor to Husky practices during fall camp. Rumor has it that the Huskies haven't been feverishly pursuing Jack due to concerns about grades and other issues. Reportedly Jack is making progress in addressing those concerns. That's good, because Jack is really good. He had a 66 yard TD run and a huge sack that were instrumental in winning the game, along with lots of other contributions. I think he is the best athlete in the state of Washington and he is at the top of my wish list for closing out the 2013 recruiting class. If the Husky defense is going to get to the next level, Sark needs to land guys like this...and Jack is in his backyard. Oh, and 2014 PSA Budda Baker looks pretty good too.

Rumor Bama CB (fomerly of Eastern Arizona JC) Travell Dixon will transfer to UW

8

"As I Tweeted earlier, there's a rumor out there that Travell Dixon, a JC cornerback from Eastern Arizona who signed with Alabama but left there a few weeks ago, will transfer to UW. I have no official confirmation, though, so we'll see. Dixon was considered the nation's top JC cornerback before signing with Alabama. As far as I can tell, he would have to sit out this year and then have two to play two if he came to UW. Here's a story on his departure from Alabama." --Bob Condotta
