Myles Bryant, a three-star cornerback from Los Angeles, had previous scholarship offers from UW, UCLA and others.
Wrapping up Washington’s “uneventful” signing day:
- It was a small but balanced class, and probably Chris Petersen‘s best yet.
- Matt Calkins: Imagine what Petersen can do with this talent.
- Video and quotes from Petersen on signing day.
- Petersen was on with “Brock and Salk” Thursday on 710 ESPN Seattle.
- Nice read from Larry Stone on Shaq Thompson during Super Bowl week.
- Revisiting Thompson’s least-favorite topic — his failed attempt with the Red Sox.
- A big win for the UW men in overtime late Wednesday.
- This is a boon for the Huskies: Myles Bryant, a three-star cornerback from Loyola High in Los Angeles who had previous scholarship offers from UW, UCLA, Colorado and others, announced he plans to accept a walk-on invitation to UW. He told 247sports that he had waited too long to make a decision on a school and by the time he did, those scholarship had been filled. His hudl.com highlights are below.
- Petersen on Wednesday said he wasn’t able to confirm other invited walk-ons, but Skyline QB Blake Gregory, former Bellevue LB Ryan Bowman and former Mountlake Terrace safety Mason Stone have all announced their intention to accept preferred walk-on spots with the Huskies.
- Arizona State’s recruitment of Byron Murphy, UW’s blue-chip cornerback signee, was “intense” and “nonstop” leading up to signing day. “The last couple of days were really hard on him,” Jason Mohns, Murphy’s high school coach, told the Arizona Republic. “I think some of the coaches don’t realize how hard it is on a kid. He is sick to his stomach. He can’t sleep. I’m proud of Byron for sticking to his word. But it was hard on him. He really liked ASU. It was a tight battle. I’m glad it’s over for him. He can relax and be a kid.”
- Brandon Wellington joined Eastside Catholic teammates during a signing ceremony Wednesday.
- Looking ahead, the Huskies already have one recruit committed for the Class of 2017 … and one for 2018, too.
- The NCAA rules committee will discuss potential changes to the targeting rule this month.
