"I went down to practice at U-Dub today and I was in for some meetings with coach (Jonathan) Smith for a little while and then I got to go in and talk with coach (Chris) Petersen and meet with him and while I was in there, I told him I wanted to commit," an excited Jacob Sirmon told Dawgman.com. "After getting to know the coaches and seeing the direction the program is headed, I just knew that Washington was where I wanted to play so there was no reason to wait things out any longer."
Sirmon chose the Huskies over offers from Washington State and Nebraska and he had been hearing from the likes of UCLA and Oregon as well.
"Another big thing for me was just being able to stay close to my family and have them be part of my experience," Sirmon added. "My brothers and I are real close and I wanted them to be able to come watch me practice and also to see me play."
Sirmon has plenty of attachments to the Husky football program as well as the University of Washington. His uncle, Peter, was the linebackers coach for the Huskies from 2012 to 2013 and his father, David, is a professor in the Business school.
