Anyone else amused that Washington offered a scholarship to Gee Scott Jr. earlier this week? Scott, a senior-to-be receiver at Eastside Catholic, verbally committed to Ohio State on Christmas Day.

Moore: Has Félix thrown his last pitch for Mariners?

Coaches offer scholarships all the time to recruits who have verbally committed to other schools. Why is this amusing? It’s amusing because U-Dub coach Chris Petersen likes to think he’s different when it comes to the recruiting trail.

Petersen talks of other programs being “vultures,” saying: “We operate such a different way. So when it happens…why would you be calling those kids who have been committed to us forever, but they do.”

If he truly operated a different way from other coaches, why did he offer a scholarship to Scott Jr.? Isn’t that hypocritical?

Scott is rated as the 13th-best receiving prospect in the country and is the son of Gee Scott, host of “KIRO Nights” on KIRO-FM.
