Dwayne Washington had an offer from Washington for months and the Cerritos (Calif.) Gahr wide receiver finally committed this past weekend after realizing the Huskies would be the best spot for him.
Offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach Doug Nussmeier played an important role in the recruitment of Washington, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound prospect who finished with 38 receptions for 638 yards and six touchdowns in his junior season.
"It was really good because coach Nuss would come down and check on me and the coaching staff would keep in contact and I just love the school and the program," Washington said.
"Coach Nuss is the best recruiter toward me because he's going to help me out with all this other stuff and he's going to get me prepared for next year. I'm really looking forward to it."
Washington has not visited the school yet but he's planning to take a trip to Seattle this summer and that should help him firm up his commitment even further.
The Gahr standout who has been timed at 4.4 seconds in the 40-yard dash and won the Fastest Man Award at the National Underclassmen Combine last summer said while he's definitely committed he does plan to take other official visits this fall.
"I'm 100 percent committed," Washington said.
"I'm going to take a visit sometime in July probably. I think I'll probably take other visits in the fall."
So far, Washington, Colorado, Idaho, Nevada and Utah have offered. Washington said he'd like to take official visits to USC, Oregon, Oregon State and Colorado during his senior season.
