Alright, today is the day for the National Signing Day madness to begin. Sure, the actual day for signing is Wednesday, February 6th, but football recruiting will be the focus of what we’re doing here from now until all the letters of intent are faxed in.
Washington’s Class of 2013 is shaping up to be the best in over a decade based on those who are already committed, with several big-time players still in play that could boost it to even greater heights. Here I’ll go over who is committed and who is still in play so that you can have a greater idea of what the class looks like, and how that could change by the time Wednesday has come to a close.
If you’re curious how our cross-mountain foes in Pullman are doing on the recruiting trail, head over to All Coug’d Up. For news on UCLA, who is competing with Washington for several players, including Myles Jack and Eddie Vanderdoes, check out Go Joe Bruin. For news on USC, who is competing with UW for Nico Falah and Vanderdoes, head to Reign of Troy.
These are the guys that have already signed on as students at the University of Washington. In fact, they’re both already taking classes here.
Troy Williams – QB – Harbor City, CA (Narbonne)
Trevor Walker – S – Arlington, TX (Timberview)
Who’s Verbally Committed?
These are the guys that have given their verbal commitments. That commitment means less and less every year in football recruiting, so within this list there is a wide range to how committed they really are. Some are an absolute lock, while some are about as likely to sign somewhere else as they are to end up Huskies. I’ll be breaking down my predictions for each verbal commitment later today, but for now, here is the list of players.
Damore’ea Stringfellow – WR – Moreno Valley, CA (Rancho Verde)
Elijah Qualls – DT – Petaluma, CA (Casa Grande)
Darrell Daniels – WR – Oakley, CA (Freedom)
Joe Mathis – DE – Upland, CA (Upland)
Dane Crane – C – Rancho Santa Margarita, CA (Santa Margarita Catholic)
Sean Constantine – LB – Bellevue, WA (Bellevue)
John Ross – WR – Long Beach, CA (David Starr Jordan)
Daeshon Hall – DE – Lancaster, TX (Lancaster)
Marcus Farria – DE – Peoria, AZ (Centennial)
Lavon Coleman – RB – Lompoc, CA (Lompoc)

Cameron Van Winkle – K – Snoqualmie, WA (Mount Si)
Kevin King – CB – Oakland, CA (Bishop O’Dowd)
Jermaine Kelly – CB – Los Angeles, CA (Salesian)

Andrew Kirkland – OT – Portland, OR (Jesuit)
Coleman Shelton – OT – Los Angeles, CA (Loyola)
Who’s In Play?
These are players that have a decent shot of signing their letter of intent with Washington. Several are already committed to other schools, but look to be wavering, others are undecided but are considering the Huskies. I will be posting a separate article this afternoon predicting where each of these six will end up.
Myles Jack – LB – Bellevue, WA (Bellevue)
Nico Falah – OT – Bellflower, CA (Saint John Bosco)
Tyrell Robinson – LB – San Diego, CA (Abraham Lincoln)
Tyree Robinson – WR – San Diego, CA (Abraham Lincoln)
