Sarkisian 'very optimistic' Locker will return to Huskies for senior year

Posted: Updated:

SEATTLE - Washington coach Steve Sarkisian says he's "very optimistic" that star quarterback Jake Locker will return to the Huskies for his senior season rather than enter the NFL draft.

Sarkisian made the remark Tuesday, one day after he met with Locker to discuss his draft prospects. Asked why he was optimistic, Sarkisian said only, "That's just the way I am."

The coach says Locker submitted a request to the NFL for evaluation of his draft status, but such a move is customary. The deadline for players to enter the draft is Jan. 15.
