Huskies' messiah confirms he'll play football

If you haven't seen it yet, the Seattle Times is reporting that Ferndale football/baseball star Jake Locker has spurned a potentially lucrative baseball contract to play football for the Huskies this fall, giving the Huskies their first win of 2006 before camp even starts.

For those keeping track of such things, that's the Huskies' fourth win in the past three years.

Additionally, this now makes the Huskies 1-for-3 on superstar football/baseball prospects after Grady Sizemore and Matt Tuiasosopo decided they'd rather get paid by baseball teams rather than UW boosters. That's 33 percent -- or, for those who need a comparison, roughly the same rate at which Isaiah Stanback completes his passes.

Maybe that will change with Locker. Husky fans sure hope so.

Did I mention in my profile that I'm a '99 WSU grad who bleeds Crimson?
