The Huskies picked up a new commitment this morning from safety James Sample out of California. He announced during today’s Army All-American Bowl and is a pretty big pick-up. He’s long been rumored to be coming to UW, but it’s good to hear him make it official. Sample is a big hitter who could challenge for playing time immediately. While a different type of safety, he’s comparable in rating and potential impact to Sean Parker in last year’s class, and that could be a great combo in a couple of years.
Sample makes three future Huskies in the game, joining previous commits Kasen Williams and Austin Seferian-Jenkins. Unfortunately, the game is fairly unwatchable, as the teams throw like crazy but have had little time to build up any kind of rhythm. Williams had a short catch and Sample made a nice tackle, but otherwise there hasn’t been much to see, halfway through the third. Still, it’s good to see this many future Dawgs in this big of a game.
