The program ensured it should have plenty of potent passers for years to come after Troy Williams enrolled at the university Monday.
After adding three four-star quarterbacks in two years, it will be interesting to see which quarterback separates himself as the Huskies’ future starter.
Who they have
Troy Williams (Harbor City, Calif./Narbonne) 6-foot-2, 190-pounds
Williams committed to the Huskies in June before going to the program’s Rising Stars Camp and putting on a show. He looked comfortable on Washington’s practice field.
He then went into his senior season and led Narbonne to the CIF Southern California Regional Open Division bowl game. He completed better than 70 percent of his passes, throwing for 2,881 yards and 39 touchdowns over 15 games.
He refused to let a shoulder injury late in the season keep him off the field, leading the Gauchos to a 14-1 record.
A proven winner, Williams will get a head start on his college career, joining safety Trevor Walker (Arlington, Texas/Mansfield Timberview) as the two players who enrolled early.
“I’ve just got to make sure I’m working hard,” Williams said. “I don’t want to get caught slacking or anything like that. I’ll be a freshman and I’ll have to work hard like it’s going to be my last day on campus. Hopefully I can build off that momentum and become a starting quarterback early at Washington.”
Who they want
Washington will only take one quarterback in its 2013 class.
“Troy’s accolades speak for themselves,” Washington coach Steve Sarkisian said in a news release after Williams enrolled. “I love his competitive spirit and I’ve had the chance to work with him in camps. We’ve been recruiting him for a long time. His ability to run and throw is a great fit for our program.”
