Joe Montana’s son headed to Washington

SEATTLE – Oaks Christian High School coach Bill Redell says Washington is getting a great player in quarterback Nick Montana, the son of former NFL great Joe Montana.

Redell tells The Associated Press that Nick Montana told him on Tuesday night that he’d given a verbal commitment to Washington coach Steve Sarkisian.

Montana is rated among the top quarterbacks in the class of 2010. Montana had scholarship offers from Ohio State, LSU, Alabama, Georgia and his dad’s alma mater, Notre Dame, among others.

Montana says he isn’t deterred by Washington’s 0-12 record last season. He visited the campus last weekend with his parents.

Washington fans will get a chance to see Montana on Sept. 18 when Oaks Christian plays at Seattle-area power Skyline.
