Huskies Land Skyline Receiver Kasen Williams
In 2008 the Huskies had just finished their season 0-12 and the program was in a disasterous position. The team had just fired Tyrone Willingham and was looking to hire its 4th head coach in a 7 year span. The Huskies missed out on Texas Tech head coach Mike Leach, former Oakland Raiders head coach Lane Kiffin and missed out on up and coming head coach Brian Kelly of Cincinnati. The Huskies landed USC offensive coordinator Steve Sarkisian. Sarkisian didn't have much time to recruit the class of 2009 but he had plenty of time for 2010. In the class of 2010 Sarkisian brought in the 11th ranked class according to scout.com.
Now in 2011 Sarkisian could actually outproduce that 2010 status. He landed Austin Seferian-Jenkins the top rated TE in the country according to Rivals.com. The class was ranked 20th in the country before Sark landed 5 star recruit and 4th ranked WR Kasen Williams of Skyline Highschool. Williams is your typical 6'2" Sarkisian WR. The Huskies have now landed a 4 star recruit at running back(Brendon Bigelow), the highest rated TE in the country, the highest rated WR on the west coast and is on the verge of landing the top QB on the west coast 4 star recruit Brett Hundley.
Willingham left the program making excuses and with a frown. Sarkisian has came in with a smile and promised the return to glory! His coaching staff has worked hard on maximizing the most out of these Huskies on the current roster and the team has improved significantly since this time last year. Sarkisian is also working really hard on the recruiting trail. These recruits won't pay off for this year or maybe even next year. With Sarkisians recruiting a trip to the Rosebowl is now a possibility which after the Huskies ended the 2008 season to California that seemed like a lifetime a way. We are lucky to have Sarkisian as our head coach. I will always bark for Sark!
