08:34 AM ET 01.26 | Steve Sarkisian may have landed a big target of his recruiting effort on Tuesday at the expense of in-state rival Washington State. There were several reports Tuesday night that the Huskies had gotten a commitment from running back Bishop Sankey of Gonzaga Prep, who rushed for 2,518 yards last fall as a senior. Sankey had been committed to WSU since December 2009. But he recently decided to consider other options and picked the Huskies on Tuesday after taking a recruiting visit to UW.

Buckeyes are #1 baby! Where is everybody?

If true this would be the biggest "victory" of his young coaching career.

It's not, it is small and that is why my Wife and I love it here. I work with a small firm, we make surveillance/covert equipment for only government agencies and state/federal/county/city police departments for every state. It is small enough yet busy enough to enjoy working here. The area is great.

And you guys got a triple A affiliate of the Devil Rays too. Had no idea a small coastal town could support a team like that. Florida doesn't do pro baseball very well in spite of all the baseball talent it produces.

If you had to choose between the Huskies and WSU, where would you go? I see Steve's team improving, but maybe you'd need your trusty nickel to help with the decision.

Morning Colonel & BB9! Sorry to interrupt guys - Punta Gorda sounds nice (devastated by hurricane and economy, but nice).

exactly. Pullman or Seattle. Not a hard decision to me.
Although, if he went to Gonzaga prep Wazzu would be a lot closer to home.

That's what I see - close to home or Seattle and the Huskies.

College is a time to get away from home and spread your wings a bit, right? I don't know much about Wazzu, but I think the world of Sarkisian as a person and coach.

I have been to both, and I would chose Pullman, but not for school, just like the area. But for the school, should have gone Ducks.

BOOO this man! Go Beavs!

Spokane is a nice area....Pullman is nice but boooooooring. UW is actually a lot better school than UofO. If education is what he's after he def picked the right school out of the D1 schools in the NW. IMO, eastern washinton is just too far removed from the rest of the state. I like seattle, and if you dont want to live in the city there are plenty of places on the west side of the cascades to live without having to actually be in seattle. But everyone has their own preferences. The eastern side of washington and oregon are great for getting away from people and hunting/fishing (west side aint so bad either tho). In a perfect world, I'd have a cabin out on the east side for hunting/fishing/skiing.....and live most of the time on the west side becasue the weather is more moderate (less sunny tho) and closer to the beach.

this is not to say that I think UO is not a good school. I just think UW is probably better for most majors. Just my $0.02.

I was just picking between the two, I am like you, I like Spokane. I lived in Spokane for 3 years in the early 70's, great place. Worked for a bread company, ran routes across Idaho into Montana, fantastic!

I dont remember off the top of my head but I think it's I80 that runs from spokane through Coeur d'Alene into Montana. That is such an awesome drive. Just took a trip up to Glacier National Park last summer for a week and had a blast. Drove past lake Coeur d'Alene at sunset and one of the pretiest sights I've seen. Was that your route?
