Huskies Are The Choice For Gaskin

O'Dea (Seattle, Wa.) RB Myles Gaskin has seen his stock rise since the end of his junior season, but on Sunday, after meeting for a second time with the Husky coaching staff, the talented runner decided he'd seen enough and made his decision to commit to Washington...

"I've committed to the University of Washington," a happy Gaskin told shortly after making his decision. "It was just the whole package -- location, school, coaches, the program, the vibe -- everything was what I wanted it to be.

"I was up there for Junior Day (back on February 8th) and meeting the coaches, I just felt like we could do some great things together and I loved the vibe they had.

"My brother also lives in Atlanta, so he and I talked about it and he said it was really hard leaving home and being away from my family and I started to think about that and I agreed. That's a big reason why I chose (the Huskies), but it's really everything because they are a great institution, a great staff and I like the direction of where things are headed."

As a junior this past season, Gaskin rushed for over 2,000 yards and close to 30 touchdowns and was named Associated Press Class 3A All-State and he received Seattle Times all-classifications All-State honors.

Gaskin chose the Huskies over offers from Arizona State and Washington State and he had seen things heat up with Oregon and Oregon State as well.
