Brown says 'I'm a Husky'

While he was committed to Utah for the past few months, Vista Murrieta QB Derrick Brown decided he wanted to see what Washington had to offer this weekend and he took an official visit to Seattle to check things out. After spending just a little time with the staff and players, the talented signal-caller said he knew what he wanted to do and let the staff know he wanted to commit to the Huskies...

"After getting there and just spending a little bit of time, I could just feel the vibe and the excitement about the program and I knew I wanted to be a Husky," Brown told shortly after landing in Southern Calfornia. "My parents where both excited. My dad was throwing up the 'W' sign all weekend long."

Brown's host was RB Deontae Cooper who had gone to middle school with the talented signal-caller.

"He and I already sorta knew each other so it was really great just hanging out and getting to know the rest of the guys," Brown said.

Brown committed to Utah back in October and felt the need to call the Ute coaches about his decision.

"They were real professional with me," Brown said. "They said they liked me a lot and appreciated me calling them. They wished me the best and said good luck and that was about it.

"I was a little surprised, but I'm just glad to be a Husky and I'm happy that I can be done with my decision now and sign with them on February 2nd."

We'll have more from Brown in the near future after he signs his letter to play for the Huskies.
