Just days after Washington snagged its first recruit for the class of 2014, Timberline High of Lacey star Donaven Dorsey gave a verbal commitment to play for the Husky men’s basketball team.

The 6-foot-6 wing, who will be a senior next season, declined offers from Washington State, Gonzaga, Oregon State and Portland State.

“It’s a big relief,” Dorsey told The Olympian. “I’m very excited to become a Dawg.”

Dorsey, who averaged 21 points and nine rebounds last season, was a second-team Class 3A pick by The Associated Press.

Dorsey joins 6-10 Canadian Tristan Etienne as the Huskies’ second recruit for the class of 2014.

After securing Dorsey and Etienne, Washington should have one scholarship available.
