SEATTLE – Former Washington quarterback Colson Yankoff has found a new home in the Pac-12.
Yankoff, a redshirt freshman who decided to transfer from UW in May, has landed at UCLA. The Bruins announced the news on Twitter Tuesday afternoon.
The former Coeur d’Alene High School standout (6-foot-4, 210 pounds) originally signed with UW over offers from Baylor, Oregon, Nebraska, Ole Miss and Cal, among others. 247Sports ranked Yankoff as the No. 2 player in Idaho and the No. 6 dual-threat quarterback in the country. The Bruins didn’t offer Yankoff coming out of high school.
Yankoff and fellow redshirt freshman quarterback Jacob Sirmon entered the transfer portal last month. But after reportedly sitting down for a meeting with head coach Chris Petersen and offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Bush Hamdan, Sirmon decided to stay.
