SEATTLE -- It was an interesting signing day for Washington.

The Huskies revealed their 2013 class Wednesday, a group that includes five members of the ESPN 300, and coach Steve Sarkisian praised the quality of the new prospects in the program.

Washington certainly had its share of hits and misses, but since the ones who got away aren’t coming back, the focus should stay on players the Huskies signed.

It’s a very good group. Washington added length, strength and athleticism. The offensive prospects are proven playmakers and the defensive standouts have big-play potential.

With 22 prospects in this class, quarterback Troy Williams and safety Trevor Walker enrolled early the Huskies had room to add more prospects if they wanted, but Sarkisian said he didn’t want to reach late.

Washington finished with the No. 3 class in the Pac-12. It was rated No. 18 in the nation.

Now that the 2013 class has been announced, the Huskies are already working on 2014. With the program’s junior day set for Saturday, there is little time to rest for the coaching staff.

While Washington looks toward the future, it is time to tackle the mailbag.
