Sammie Long only had one offer but it was the only one he wanted and needed.
The Lakewood (Wash.) Lakes three-star wide receiver had an offer from Washington and he decided to commit on Tuesday night soon after returning from the New Athletics Elite 7on7 in Las Vegas.
The Huskies were always considered one of the favorites for Long, a 6-foot-4, 190-pound prospect who was one of the top targets on Team Washington this past weekend at UNLV.

"That has always been his favorite school and the school he wanted to go to," Lakes coach Dave Miller said.
"They offered him in October after they saw him in one of our games and they've seen him in passing leagues up close and have had a good chance to get to know him over the last year.
"He felt like he didn't need to wait. That was his No. 1 spot for a while and he wanted to lock it in."
Long finished with 20 receptions for 266 yards and five touchdowns averaging more than 13 yards per catch in his junior season. Missouri, Utah, Washington State and other Pac-12 schools had been showing interest.
But the Huskies were always his favorite team and Miller said in the end it wasn't really a difficult decision for Long to make his commitment.
"It's a no-brainer for him," Miller said.
"It's a great fit for him for what he wants. The guy has tremendous potential with his size and I think he's going to fill out and become the big, dominant receiver."
