Shaq Thompson Commits To Washington Huskies Over Cal

Steve Sarkisian and the Washington Huskies might have just landed their biggest recruiting victory when they picked up the prized jewel of the Cal recruiting class and got him to make the move to UW.

Shaq Thompson is considered one of the best safeties in the 2012 recruiting class. The Grant safety is the all-around package and was expected to be a game-changer as someone who could start the moment he made it onto campus. Thompson has always liked Washington, and it looks like the movement of his main recruiter was enough to make the difference in getting him to come Northwest. A few other factors could've also played a hand in his final decision.

Looks as if the poaching of Tosh Lupoi from Cal to Washington might've made the difference.
