"He did (commit to Washington)," Meagher told Dawgman.com on Monday morning. "They offered him at the BYU game and that's when he committed.
"I know his parents wanted him to go there. He's always kind of wondered if Washington wanted him. The recruiting game can be difficult on kids because they hadn't offered and he didn't know this or that, but his parents wanted to keep him close to home, so I think that's a lot of it."
Pulu was a starter for Federal Way in 2007 as a junior, totaling over 80 tackles while posting three sacks while missing time with some minor injuries.
This year, Meagher said Pulu is even bigger than he was as a junior and that's apparently what the Husky coaching staff liked about him.
"First of all it's his size," Meagher said. "He's 6-2, 250 and that's a pretty good sized linebacker. Add to that, he's fast. He's one of the faster guys on our team – he runs a 4.7 forty – so you have that size and that speed and you're pretty special.
"He's aggressive, there's no question about it. I think when he meets you in the hole, you know it as an opposing player.
"He's put on anywhere from 10 to 20 pounds per year since he's been here, he was about 190 pounds as a freshman, so each year he's grown significantly to where he is now, so I would imagine once he gets on a college regimen of lifting and diet, I wouldn't be surprised if he's 280 or 290 by the time he's a senior in college."
Pulu had an offers from Washington State, UNLV and Eastern Washington as well as interest from schools like UCLA, Oregon and Oregon State.
Pulu becomes Washington's sixth commitment for the 2009 class joining Garfield (Seattle) DT Deandre Coleman, Clovis East (Fresno) S Nathan Fellner, West Seattle DB Aaron Grymes, South Oak Cliff (Dallas, Tx.) CB Kenneth Pinkard and St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Ca.) QB Keith Price.
