SEATTLE | The Seattle Times reports that the son of former NFL great Joe Montana has decided to play football at Washington.
Nick Montana, from Oaks Christian School in Westlake Village, Calif., is rated among the top quarterbacks in the class of 2010.
The Times reported today that Montana called Washington coach Steve Sarkisian on Tuesday night and said he would become a Husky. Montana had scholarship offers from South Carolina, Ohio State, LSU, Alabama, Georgia and his dad's alma mater, Notre Dame.
Montana says he isn't deterred by Washington's 0-12 record last season. He visited the campus last weekend with his parents.
Never miss a local story.
Washington fans will get a chance to see Montana on Sept. 18 when Oaks Christian plays Seattle-area power Skyline at Qwest Field.
