Austin Joyner is one of the top 2015 prospects in the Pacific Northwest and on Tuesday night he decided to make his commitment.
The Marysville (Wash.) Marysville-Pilchuck four-star running back has decided t stay close to home by committing to Washington early in the recruiting process.
"I made the decision (Tuesday) but I kind of knew it was on the way," Joyner said.

Washington, Oregon State, Washington State and Portland State have offered Joyner but it was the Huskies' coaching staff that put the four-star over the edge.
"I loved the coaching staff," Joyner said.
"It seems like everybody is one big family. Everybody was a part of recruiting me and everybody wanted me equally. It wasn't just like one person recruiting me. It was the whole staff. I was just really impressed by them."
Joyner, who looked good at the Rivals Camp Series in the spring, said the Huskies are recruiting him mainly as a running back but he could also play some defense.
The 5-foot-11, 186-pound prospect said he could take some other visits over the next couple years but that he's locked in with the Huskies and doesn't see himself making any other decisions as his recruitment continues.
"They didn't really give me that detailed of a description but I'm going to play running back and maybe defensive back, a little bit of both," Joyner said.
