Of the players in this year's recruiting class, 12 hail from Washington, nine are from California and one each come from Hawaii, Idaho, Arizona, Oregon and Louisiana.
"I'm very pleased with this group of young men," said Willingham. "I think our coaching staff and our players did a great job in terms of addressing the needs of our team and in terms of getting so many standout student-athletes from here in the state of Washington. I'm looking forward to getting this group on campus in the fall and preparing for the 2008 season."
Following its season opener Aug. 30 at Oregon, Washington will return to Seattle for three consecutive home games against BYU (Sept. 6), Oklahoma (Sept. 13) and Stanford. The Huskies will also play Oregon State, Notre Dame, Arizona State and UCLA during its seven-game home schedule. Away contests include games at Arizona, USC, Washington State and California.
