Troy Williams recently took an unofficial visit to Washington and after that trip it was no major surprise the Huskies moved to the top of his list.
The Harbor City (Calif.) Narbonne four-star quarterback committed to the Huskies over Arizona, UCLA, Florida and many others during a ceremony at his school on Friday.
"It was really good up there especially when I got to hang out with some of the players I knew that came from my school and some of the dudes I grew up with," Williams said.

"The area and the city of Seattle is so great. It's so green up there and the view was great from the water. It's so different than what it is out here in L.A. I related with the coaching staff because a lot of them are from the L.A. area and they know where I'm coming from."
Rated as the second-best dual-threat quarterback and No. 98 prospect in the 2013 class by Rivals.com, Williams had 11 offers but Washington really impressed him more than the others.
He said Washington's coaching staff played a big factor in his decision.
"It's been a factor for a long time especially as I learned more and more about coach (Steve) Sarkisian," Williams said. "He's a great coach and he puts out great quarterbacks."
The Huskies took two quarterbacks in Cyler Miles and Jeff Lindquist last recruiting cycle but that didn't turn off Williams, who threw for 3,247 yards with 34 touchdowns and 11 interceptions in his junior season.
Williams said there will be competition wherever he goes and the four-star is looking forward to the challenge of getting on the field.
"There's going to be competition everywhere," Williams said. "I have to go in there, work hard and try to beat them out."
