Washington football: Recruiting will not falter under Jimmy Lake

After the shocking news that Washington football head coach Chris Petersen will be stepping down following the team’s bowl game, and defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake would be taking over the position, one of the first thoughts on some fan’s minds (understandably so) is “what’s going to happen with the recruiting?”

Lake holds a great deal of respect among current and former players, parents, coaches, and just about anyone you can think of when it comes to college football.

The 2020 class

Don’t expect many, if any, players from the 2020 class to decommit. The fact that Chris Petersen is staying with the program is a big key, but it looks like most of the assistant coaches will be staying with the team as well.
