Goodwin commits to Huskies

Fate has a way of working in mysterious ways. Even though news has been tough recently in regards to recruiting, the Huskies got some light pointed their way when Antelope Valley (Lancaster, Ca.) ATH D'Andre Goodwin decided to commit to Washington. Dawgman.com caught up with the playmaker from southern California and he explained his decision-making process and his plans for teammate Andre Crenshaw.

"Coach (Chris) Tormey called me last night and when we were talking I told him I was ready to commit to the Huskies," Goodwin said proudly. "He said that I should call coach (Tyrone) Willingham to give him the good news so I did.

"He was really happy when I called and told him I wanted to come to Washington. He told me to be ready to compete when I get there."

Goodwin is a player who can play a multitude of positions, but it sounds like the Husky coaching staff is going to give him his shot at wide receiver when he makes it to campus this fall.

An official visit is still in the offing this weekend and Goodwin says it will be a time just to see where he will spend the next four to five years of his life.

"I can't wait to get up there and see the campus and meet the coaches," Goodwin said. "I've always wanted to go to Washington and coach Willingham being there just made me want to go there that much more."

Crenshaw is Goodwin's teammate and even though the former is visiting Oregon this weekend, Goodwin said there is a good chance he will be in his friend's ear about the Huskies.

"He was really happy for me," Goodwin said. "I'm going to be talking to him about coming up there to. He likes the Huskies so it isn't like I will have to talk him into it too much."

We will have more from Goodwin after his visit to Montlake this weekend.
