Steve Sarkisian believes that Washington's recruiting class makes up in quality what it might lack in numbers.

The Huskies signed 22 players to national letters of intent Wednesday, a smaller number than the typical 25.

The highlight of the class is a trio of wide receivers. The Huskies landed 6-foot-4 Darrell Daniels out of Pittsburg, Calif.; 6-foot-3 Damore'ea Stringfellow out of Paris, Calif.; and 5-foot-11 speedster John Ross from Long Beach, Calif. Sarkisian said he would put that trio of receivers up against any other group of receivers that signed with schools Wednesday.

Washington also made a commitment to more length and speed on defense in an effort to help stop the spread offenses that have chewed up the Huskies in recent years.
