Great news Dawg fans! Jake Locker has decided to return to the Huskies for his senior season. Here are the highlights of the breaking news released on December 14th:
“After a great deal of careful thought and deliberation, I have decided to return to Washington and play my senior year, I am very excited about this team’s opportunities and potential for the upcoming season and I am looking forward to being a part of it.”
Jake Locker made the decision over the weekend. He decided not to submit his name for the 2010 NFL draft, despite being an expected 1st round top 10 pick and rookie salary cap possibilities for waiting another year.
Jake told his teammates his intentions this morning and the University of Washington released a press release just after noon. Due to final exams this week & winter break, Locker may not be available for interviews until early January. Coach Sark had this to say:
“You can only imagine [on how excited he is] this is the first time in history I’ve ever signed a 10-star recruit. Forget four- or five-star recruits. We got a 10-star recruit today.”
2010 is going to be an exciting year with Jake at the helm. Pac-10 Champions? Rose Bowl? Heisman? Exciting times ahead!
