Quick Recruiting Note: TE Seferian-Jenkins Picks Washington over Texas

Keenan WomackContributor IIIAugust 17, 2010

 

Austin Seferian-Jenkins has made his commitment to play for the Washington Huskies.

The 6'7" tight end, who ranks No. 1 among tight ends in the country and 29th overall in the 2011 recruiting class, had to pick between the Longhorns and Washington.

From Gig Arbor Yacht Club (skip to 0:21 for an accurate description), he announced he would take his talents to the latter.

This comes as somewhat of a blow for Texas, as AS-J claimed that it would take something "drastic" for him to commit to anyone other than the Longhorns.

With great size and strong attributes across the board, Seferian-Jenkins would have been a great addition to a Texas team that looks already to have a good passing game.

But Seferian-Jenkins will do well catching passes in Washington, and will probably be a great player for the Huskies, a team he claims will win "Rose Bowls and National Championships."

After missing out on AS-J, it looks like RB Malcolm Brown will have to do for us Texas fans. Not a bad consolation prize.
