Jomon Dotson took an official visit to Washington last weekend and now he has some news.
"I de-committed from Colorado and I committed to Washington," Dotson said.
The three-star running back from American Canyon, Calif., said it was a difficult decision to flip his pledge but after considering both options he figured he would be better off with the Huskies.
Dotson, who rushed for 2,004 yards and 26 touchdowns in his senior season, said he loved Chris Petersen and his staff when they were at Boise State but he was hesitant to commit there.
Once those coaches went to Washington this off-season, Dotson became interested again and that set everything in motion.
"I had to really sit down and think about it," Dotson said. "It was a long process. It actually started from Boise. Even though I didn't want to go to Boise I had great chemistry with the coaches and then once they moved over to Washington they offered me.
"I still liked the coaches ever since Boise and they offered me at Washington. They said I could come visit the school so I took one of my officials to their school and I liked it out there. The education was pretty good. I liked the academic advisors. The facilities were nice. I thought that was the right spot for me."
The American Canyon standout had been committed to Colorado for months but he sees a new start with Washington and with the coaches he liked so much during the recruiting process. Dotson said he's not taking any other visits.
"They started from fresh in the Pac-12," Dotson said. "I just thought that was the best choice."
