The Washington Huskies continue to reel in recruits to bolster their football program.
A week after signing day for the class of 2017, the Huskies reeled in an ESPN 300 recruit for next season.
On Friday, Austin Osborne, a four-star receiver from Mission Viejo, California, took to social media to announce he has committed to the program for its Class of 2018.
Osborne announced his decision with a brief statement on social media.

The Huskies finished with the 22nd overall recruiting class this past season, and is off to a great start for next season. In addition to Osborne, they’ve also received a commitment from the guy who might be throwing him the ball. Jacob Sirmon, a five-star quarterback from Washington so far is the headlining name that currently ranks as 15th in the country.
For Washington, receiving commitments from the mostly highly sought after recruits in the country is a victory, but it doesn’t mean the work is over. High school talent is historically fickle and decommitments/flipping to other schools is incredibly common.
The Huskies have gotten themselves off to a running start for the 2018 class, but they’d be wise not to count their chickens before they hatch.
