Commit number two on the way

With the start of fall camp on their minds, the Husky coaching staff was unavailable to take a call from South Oak Cliff (Dallas) CB Kenneth Pinkard late this morning, but he said after returning home on Sunday afternoon from his unofficial visit he decided he wanted to become a Husky and he'll talk to the coaches this evening to let them know about it.

"It was a lot of fun," Pinkard told about his visit. "We got to meet with the coaches and talk with some of the players who were there.

"Washington is where I want to be and it isn't just because they are my only offer. I wouldn't commit to them if I didn't want to be up there and thought I could have a lot of fun and get stuff done for four or five years."

Pinkard attended Washington's Senior Day activities with his step father.

"The city is beautiful and I had fun seeing the campus," Pinkard said. "Meeting with coach (Tyrone) Willingham was good. He wanted me to commit right there, but coach (J.D.) Williams told me he wanted me to be sure, so I didn't do it then.

"When I got home and talked it over with my family, we knew it was the best situation for me."

Besides the Huskies, Pinkard had been hearing quite a bit from Illinois and TCU and he'd also started hearing from schools like UAB, Houston and Texas Tech.

Pinkard had an outstanding junior season for South Oak Cliff totaling 70 tackles, four interceptions and one sack and he was named All-District for his efforts.

We'll have more from Pinkard next month after he starts his season early next month.
