The 2018 Washington Husky Recruiting Class Grew In Number Today as 4-star Wide Receiver Austin Osborne Commits

The future just grew a little brighter for the University of Washington Husky recruiting class for 2018.   The team had already lined up a five-star quarterback by the name of Jacob Sirmon from Bothell, WA.   The team also landed a commitment from his cousin, 3-star outside linebacker Jack Sirmon from Brentwood, TN.  The pair now have a third member of the 2018 Washington Husky recruiting class.

A quarterback needs weapons, and the Huskies just landed an excellent receiver for the team’s 2018 class. Osborne is an exclamation point.  His 6-foot-3 height is ideal, and his speed is one of his strongest attributes.

Committing to Washington this early will be a boon to both player and program.  I’ve set up the links to Austin’s latest and greatest scouting reviews below:.\

Campus Insider added some details to the story.  CI reports that Osborne is ranked the No. 7 wideout in the state of California and No. 18 wide receiver in the nation.  He announced his decision on twitter today:

"“I’ve made my decision. First of all, I would like to express my gratitude towards all the coaches, teammates, trainers, family and friends who I have came [sic] in contact with throughout my football career. You have all shaped me into the football player and person that I am today. I would also like to thank all of the colleges who have offered me scholarships. I know I am very blessed to have this opportunity. With that being said, I am proud to announce that I am committed to the University of Washington. Go Dawgs!”"

Great Start To 2018

This is a huge start for the UW football team. Scout.com’s Greg Biggins also covered the announcement, and got this about how Austin arrived at his decision:

"“I think Coach Petersen is the best coach in the country,” Osborne said. “The thing I love about him is he’s not just about football, he wants to make every player a better person and set them up for life after football. My goal is to become a better man and a better athlete and I know I can do that at Washington. Washington has a top 10 Business program, which is what I want to major in and I have an aunt and uncle who live 20 minutes away from campus so it’s just a great all around fit for me.”"

The University of Washington continues to cash in on their NCAA playoff appearance and recent progress of the football program.
