I have been talking to clasmates of Heaps on youtube and they say that he has always dreamed to play at Washington. His quarterbcks coach that he had at Skyline is now the quarterbacks coach at Washington. All signs point to Washington, but I think we pull another one out of the pacific northwest.

 

That program has been decimated by Ty. They are YEARS from being competitive again. While Heaps is the type of QB that can help turn things around, it will take far more than just him. I think Washington is going to be a much more monumental task than ND was.

 

So, if you are a top player, do you to go to a team that is only going to drag you down or a program that is on the rise and will spend the next several years in the top 15?

i really think sarkisian will keep him in state...........

 

I do too...

 

first, he's a Seattle-area kid, and many of the kids in the region tend to stay "home"... as opposed to kids on the East Coast who are conditioned and expected to go away to college.

 

second, I think many big time players believe they can turn around a program... that's a winner's mentality...

 

third, I think Sark will revive a good recruiting base in the Pacific NW. Shoot, UW has had a better pull than Oregan or Oregan State.

 

fourth, Sark also has that "it" quality... he's been associated with a winning college program. His key higher is his OC...

agreed, plus Sark will try to sell Heaps on being the franchise of the class. If he can get Heaps to commit then more skilled position players will prob follow

I would be kinda hesitant to go to UW if I were a high profile recruit. There are positives and negatives to the situation, but the fact remains the same....your new coach is an unproven commodity and the old coach set the team back 5 years. Even if Sark manages to be a great recruiter and coach, UW is still going to be 3 or 4 years away from being a decent team.

 

I am not saying Heaps needs to forget UW. I am just curious what these kids think when they look at a school that is obviously FUBAR.

was this what you said about Jimmy to ND?

 

Given, Weis has the whole qb guru/Tom brady pupetmaster thing going on. but the situations are not that different.

 

If Jimmy had been a recruit in 07 I would have said it. He actually came here after a BCS berth and a QB that set all kinds of records (27?) for his team.

 

Washington was 0-12 last year. ND was 10-3 the year we got Jimmy.

Sounded like NC and LSU were not really as strong sounding in his few words, but then neither was ND. I see us making the cut to top 5, but with the comment about the '09 class being so important, maybe that goes against us.

 

But then again, the '10 class that we have started and may be sitting at around May (when I hope to see us have added 4-5 more like Jones at WR, maybe Hurst at OT or Linder at C, and Barr, Carter and Martin on Defense) might give him a good reason to upgrade our chances.

Every newspaper interview with him in the Seattle papers leads me to believe he will end up at Washington. He's stated he wants the challenge to help turn it around as its been his childhood dream to play there. I think he's about as close to calling him committed there without being able to publicly say it.

Childhood dream is always hard to turn down.
