Jordan Payton Switches To Washington Huskies

Jordan Payton has had a whirlwind recruitment. First he committed to the USC Trojans, but when it was clear that the program didn't have him seriously on his radar, he decommitted and started looking elsewhere.

First it seemed as if the California Golden Bears would be the favorites to get Payton, but then he started taking a look toward the Midwest and giving serious consideration to the Michigan Wolverines and the Notre Dame Fighting Irish. After awhile, Payton seemed to turn back and give a look to plenty of Pac-12 programs, but then he finally ended up back at Cal.

However, once his main recruiter Tosh Lupoi and receivers coach Eric Kiesau bolted for Washington, it didn't become a hard decision for Payton to decommit and start over again, and after a visit up north, he ended up with the Washington Huskies during his Signing Day announcement on ESPNU on Tuesday morning.

It looks like it's over. I think..
