The media has been alerted today by a representative of Skyline High's Jake Heaps and his family that the nation's top quarterback will make his announcement Thursday on a college decision.
My guess – and it's just a guess: It's the University of Washington.
Of course, 25 other NCAA Division I schools have offered scholarships, including Alabama, Arizona State, Brigham Young, California, Colorado, Duke, Florida State, Georgia, Kansas, Louisiana State, Miami, Minnesota, Mississippi State, Nebraska, Notre Dame, North Carolina, Oklahoma, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Stanford, South Carolina, Tennessee, UCLA, Boise State and Washington State.
Heaps, who finished up his junior season in December, was a visitor of Husky spring practices. With the positive momentum that new coach Steve Sarkisian has created, the fact that Sarkisian is a former quarterback, the fact that Sarkisian made Heaps his No. 1 offseason recruiting priority all play in the Huskies' favor.
He's 28-0 as a starter, with back-to-back state titles to his name. If, indeed, he picks the UW, it might arguably be the Huskies' best get in recruiting since receiver Reggie Williams (and I know some of you would say it's even bigger).
Any news, and we'll update later.
