Gino Simone, Kirby Moore and Jamal Atofau all committed to Washington State today. Atofau from Bellevue never showed any interest in Washington and that lack of interest was mutual. Simone and Moore are surprises because both have HS teammates playing at Washington and had official vists last week. Simone played with Willingham's son and was coached by current Husky RB coach Steve Gervais.
Washington is loaded at receiver and can survive without Moore, and Simone, but you hate to lose a couple of in state guys that you wanted. The uncertainty of Willinghams tenure after this season obviously played a big part in their decisions along with the chance of immediate playing time across the mountains.
UW needs to win some early games to solidify its next recruiting class. The news this week that Fellner and Coleman had committed is nice, but when you lose kids in your own backyard you have to start closely examining what you are doing.
