Washington has productive day

Dstringfellow 200
Washington loaded up on Friday.
The Huskies landed seven commitments all in one day at their elite camp and many top names were included in the bunch.
Four-star wide receiver Demorea Stringfellow is the highest-profile prospect to make his pledge and he's joined by Moreno Valley (Calif.) Rancho Verde teammate Poasi Moala, Lompoc, Calif., running back Lavon Coleman, Petaluma (Calif.) Casa Grande athlete Elijah Qualls, former Texas commit Daeshon Hall, Lynnwood, Wash., defensive tackle Andrew Basham and Louisiana linebacker Caleb Tucker.
It was a thrilling day for the Huskies who loaded up in their recruiting class and landed some quality talent along the way led by Stringfellow, rated as the seventh-best wide receiver and No. 62 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com.
"This is the start of a new legacy," Qualls said.
Four-star quarterback commit Troy Williams was also on campus to enjoy the commitment festivities and said he was thrilled by all the news.
This was sort of expected by many because a lot of the prospects heading to Washington this weekend had talked about making a splash by all committing on the same day but that doesn't take away from its significance.
The new additions to the coaching staff - like Tosh Lupoi, Eric Kiesau and Peter Sirmon - have been crucial in ramping up Washington's recruiting status and the others that have put in lots of work to land these prospects have done a phenomenal job getting so many players in one shot.
With today's commitments, Washington has five four-stars in its recruiting class and Williams said he cannot be more excited.
"It's great," Williams said.
"They've been recruiting them pretty hard and coach (Johnny) Nansen said once I committed a lot of other guys would be committing too and it all came together today."
