Although Steve Sarkisian has yet to coach a game for the Huskies, he has already provided immense energy in one vital aspect of a successful college football program—recruiting.

Sarkisian has been active on the recruiting front since day one. The Huskies currently have the tenth best recruiting class in the country for the class of 2010.

Despite losing out on Jake Heaps, the Huskies have three four-star recruits and five three-star recruits verbally committed. Two-thirds of Sarkisian's recruits are local products.

it seems as the Huskies have already regained a significant amount of ground at home that was lost while under Willingham. We will go more in-depth on the actual recruits later, I just wanted to get across one crucial point.

Sarkisian has already started to help the program change for the better. The fact that he is able to convince decent players to come to UW, even with the fact that the team was winless last season, is impressive.

Now, whether this success will translate directly into wins has yet to determined. However it is a positive step forward, and I am excited to see what else Coach Sark can get done before the actual football season starts.
