UW hauls in another 2010 commitment

In what has become one of the most active early recruiting seasons in Washington history, the Huskies have added yet another commitment to their 2010 class as Oakland (Calif.) Tech WR DiAndre Campbell pledged his commitment to head coach Steve Sarkisian and defensive coordinator Nick Holt last night. Dawgman.com caught up with the talented wideout and he talked about why he made his commitment...

"I committed to them last night," a happy Campbell told Dawgman.com Tuesday morning. "I called coach Holt last night and he put me on with coach Sark and I talked to them for a few minutes.

"They both said they were excited to have me aboard and that I will add some playmaking ability to their receiver corps."

Campbell committed to the Dawgs over an offer from Utah and was seeing heavy interest from schools like Cal, Arizona State, BYU, San Jose State and Fresno State among others.

As a junior in 2008, the 6-foot-2, 175-pound Campbell posted 22 receptions for 212 yards and four touchdowns as a junior in 2008.

"I can use my speed or my size on guys," Campbell said. "The coaches liked to use me outside, but we didn't throw the ball a whole lot. This year we should throw it more."

Campbell admitted that he was still open to listening to different schools, but that "Washington's offer was something I couldn't pass up. It's the Pac 10 and coach Sark and his staff are really trying to build the program back up."

He also mentioned he plans to visit Washington during the fall for his official visit and hopes to set that up here in the next few weeks.
