UW recruit is Parade Player of the Year
By ESPN.com staff
Washington will be looking for a new quarterback this spring, but it appears it has found an outstanding target in its recruiting class who should make life easier for whoever wins the job.
The Parade Magazine All-America team will be published this weekend, and Huskies recruit Kasen Williams is the Player of the Year.
Williams (6-foot-2, 200 pounds), who hails from Skyline High School in Sammamish, Wash., is ranked 70th overall on the ESPNU 150.
Other players committed to Pac-12 teams on the list include offensive lineman Cyrus Hobbi (USC) and defensive tackle Viliami Moala (California).
The "Bench" -- honorable mention -- included running back Amir Carlisle (USC), receiver George Farmer (USC), receiver Richard Mullaney (Oregon State) and defensive end Todd Barr (California).
Receiver Marqise Lee, who is deciding between USC, Oregon and Miami, also made the "Bench."
