Since 1995 - Insightful commentary on the Georgia Bulldogs

Post And now for today’s “WTF?!” moment in college football recruiting

Wednesday June 10, 2009

If you’ve dipped your toe into the waters of the 2010 recruiting pool, you’ve heard of Nick Montana. Yes, son of that Montana. Montana is rated the #12 pro-style passer in the nation by Rivals.com and had offers from, among others, LSU, Alabama, Ohio State, Georgia, Notre Dame, and several schools closer to his home in California.

It’s no surprise when a prospect decides to stay within his own time zone, but Montana’s Tuesday commitment to the Washington Huskies is definitely getting a few double-takes. The Huskies were 0-12 last year and haven’t had a winning season since 2002. New Washington coach Steve Sarkisian brings a resume that includes work at Southern Cal with Carson Palmer, Matt Leinart, and Mark Sanchez, and Montana explained, “You just have to look at all the guys he’s put into the pros.” The Montanas are taking the gamble that Sarkisian will bring that same Midas touch with him as he starts to rebuild the reeling Washington program.
