2024 three-star quarterback E.J. Caminong has announced that he has decommited from Washington football.
E.J. Caminong, a local QB out of Garfield High School, originally committed to the University of Washington back in October of 2022 after being offered a scholarship that previous May.
His decision to decommit coincides with the news that the Huskies are expected to host another highly sought-after 2024 quarterback recruit, Dermaricus Davis, later in the month, who has also earned an offer from the University of Washington.
While Caminong declined to state his reasons for decommitting, it is speculated that the potential recruitment of Davis may have played a role in his decision. Currently, there is no information to confirm or deny this.
Where does Caminong’s commitment leave the Washington football program?
The Washington football program has already secured the commitment of four-star quarterback Austin Mack, who was initially part of the 2024 class but reclassified to the 2023 class and enrolled early at the school.
All three quarterbacks, including Caminong, have been highly regarded by the coaching staff at Washington.
Caminong, who currently holds offers from Oregon State, Washington State, Colorado, Texas A&M, California, and BYU, will now have the opportunity to explore other options for his college football career.
His decommitment adds an interesting dynamic to the quarterback competition at the University of Washington, as they prepare for life after Michael Penix Jr., their current Heisman-candidate quarterback.
Caminong has impressive skills that will continue to garner attention from other universities. We wish him the best of luck with his decision.
