Three-star inside linebacker Jackson Sirmon committed to Washington on Thursday, giving the Huskies their second commit of the 2018 recruiting class.


As Chris Petersen’s Huskies prepare to take on Alabama in the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl, his staff continues the momentum on the recruiting trail.

On Thursday, 3-star inside linebacker Jackson Sirmon committed to Washington, as the Huskies now have their second commit of the 2018 recruiting cycle.

Their first commitment in the 2018 class came in December 0f 2015 when Jacob Sirmon, Jackson’s cousin, pledged to Petersen’s staff. Jacob is the No. 3 quarterback and No. 40 overall player in the class. His father, David, a former linebacker at Montana, is a professor at Washington.

But the story gets more interesting.

Jackson’s father, Peter Sirmon, is a former Oregon linebacker and currently the defensive coordinator and linebackers coach at Mississippi State.

While the elder Sirmon played for the Ducks, Petersen was serving as Oregon’s wide receivers coach. So, even though Jackson isn’t committing to his father’s team, he is giving his pledge to someone his dad knows quite well.

Jackson released a brief statement regarding his decision.

“[I’m] very happy to say I have committed to the University of Washington!”

At 6-foot-2, 210 lbs Sirmon is a smart linebacker and can lay big hits with the best of them. He reads the run well and provide a real threat as a delayed pass rusher — especially when asked to shoot the A-gap. Sirmon wraps up and shows great technique, finishing the play and taking the ball carrier to the ground.
