Kearse to follow in brother's footsteps

Jamaal Kearse, a 6-foot-2, 200-pound receiver/DB prospect from Lakes High School in Lakewood, Wash., verbally committed to Steve Sarkisian and the Washington Huskies Tuesday, adding to a Kearse/UW legacy started by his older brother Jermaine, a current sophomore receiver for UW.

"Yeah, he did," Lakes Head Coach Dave Miller said of Kearse's decision to attend Washington. "He just called Sark and committed."

Kearse committed to the Huskies over scholarship offers from Washington State and Vanderbilt.

Kearse's commitment comes on the heels of another commitment made by a Puget Sound-area player to UW. On Monday afternoon, O'Dea offensive lineman Ben Riva verbally committed to Washington. It also gives the Huskies three verbal commitments from Lakes so far for the class of 2010: Kearse, DT Sione Potoae and LB Darius Waters. currently has Kearse ranked as a four-star athlete and the No. 27 receiver nationally. We'll have more from Kearse a little later today regarding his decision.
