Fogerson gives UW jump on 2010 class

Even though Washington stumbled on the field on Saturday against the Oklahoma Sooners, they still got some pretty good news shortly after they walked off the field as O'Dea FB Zach Fogerson became the earliest commit ever, verballing during his junior season.

"I committed to them tonight," an excited Fogerson told "I was really excited and I was talking to Allen Mooney and he just said 'if you like them, you should do it' and I was like 'yeah, I should' so I told coach (Tyrone) Willingham after the game.

"He said 'you made my night', so he was excited for me to commit."

Fogerson's older brother Johri started his first game ever on Saturday and his younger sibling said he was excited to be in the stands to watch his brother.

"He led the team in tackles, which was cool," Fogerson said. "He loves it at U-Dub and I really like Washington and everything about the school. It is just the best thing or me to be there and get that out of the way."

Fogerson turned down an offer from Nebraska and was getting a lot of interest from schools like Oklahoma, Tennessee, Notre Dame, Cal and Oregon.

Fogerson injured his foot during O'Dea's 41-14 win over Centennial (Coquitlan, B.C.) last night and said he hopes to be ready to go for next week's game against West Seattle and 2009 Husky commit Aaron Grymes. Top Stories
