He said Wednesday he chose the Huskies over USC.
His commitment to the Huskies adds another high-profile defensive back for co-defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake’s secondary.

“I just felt like I could trust those guys as more than just coaches. I really believe in coach Pete’s ‘Built For Life Program.’ I’m looking to grow as a man as much as I’m looking to develop as a football player and I know I can do that at Washington better than any other place.”
