Nick Montana's Commitment Solidifies 2010 Washington Recruiting Class

Seattle SportsnetCorrespondent IJune 10, 2009

All it took was one visit to the University of Washington, and Nick Montana knew where he would be playing his college football.

Forget the fact that the Huskies went 0-12 in 2008.

Forget that Montana’s dad, a guy named Joe, went to school at Notre Dame.

Nick Montana, a quarterback from Oaks Christian High School in California, committed to the future of Washington football, in the form of new head coach Steve Sarkisian, and signified the official beginning of the rebirth of the purple and gold.

The 10th commitment in Washington’s heralded 2010 class, Montana gives Sarkisian a player to recruit and build around.

At 6′1″, 185 pounds, Montana resembles a leaner version of his father and has the tools to become a quality starting quarterback in the Pac-10. With the ability to move his feet in the pocket and throw on the run, Montana should thrive in Sarkisian’s offensive schemes.

Rated as the No. 13 quarterback in his high school class by Scout.com, Montana’s commitment helps fill the void left a week ago when Skyline High School QB Jake Heaps spurned Washington for BYU.

In a twist of irony, Montana’s Oaks Christian team will face off against Heaps’ Skyline Spartans on Sept. 18.

Along with the offer from Washington, Montana also had offers from Notre Dame, LSU, Ohio State, Alabama, Georgia, and Stanford.
