The ones who got away: Bigelow, Jackson 

January, 31, 2013
Washington’s 2011 recruiting class will always be remembered as the year the Huskies landed a pair of hometown heroes.

They signed two ESPN 150 standouts in receiver Kasen Williams (Sammamish, Wash./Skyline) and tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins (Gig Harbor, Wash./Gig Harbor).

Keeping those prospects home was considered a big recruiting win for the Huskies, who signed 24 players that year, putting together a top 25 class. They beat out national powerhouses. It was a sure sign the program was on the rise.
