Huskies' Haul: Washington lands eight recruits in one day

By Bryan Fischer | Blogger

There's recruiting hauls, and there's what Washington accomplished on Friday in Seattle. In an impressive showing at the program's Rising Stars Camp, Steve Sarkisian landed commitments from eight different players.

2014 prospect and Long Beach (Calif.) receiver Rahshead Johnson was the first to pull the trigger Friday morning after picking up his offer the night prior. He didn't hold any other offers but has impressed as an underclassman on All-star 7-on-7 travel team 1925.

Joining the 2013 class were Monroe (La.) linebacker Caleb Tucker, Lompoc (Calif.) running back Lavon Coleman, Petaluma (Calif.) defensive tackle Elijah Qualls, Moreno Valley (Calif.) wide receiver Demorea Stringfellow and offensive lineman Poasi Moala, Lynwood (Wash.) defensive tackle Andrew Basham and Lancaster (Texas) defensive end Daeshon Hall.

"It's a family environment, and I just loved it here," Stringfellow told Scout.

Qualls, Stringfellow and Hunt were the three biggest commits for the Huskies with the former two being top players in the state of California. Hall was previously committed to Texas as recently as this week but wanted to move closer to his father in Seattle.

"I have family here, and I just love it here at Washington," he said.

"I'm pumped up, we just signed half of our recruiting class in one day," Harbor City (Calif.) quarterback and previous Washington commit Troy Williams said.

Indeed, the Huskies gained seven pledges for 2013 to run their total to 15 overall so far. Johnson becomes the first 2014 commit for the program as well.
