    This is great news: Signing up a 4 star QB from Cal this early really lets the other kids know that Petersen is bringing on board quality talent. This gives the Huskies 3 commits for this class!

    Between Browning and K.J. Carta-Samuels the Dawgs have some QBs stocked up. Cyler Miles has got to be looking over his shoulder.
