After reportedly eliminating the Huskies from contention months ago, five-star linebacker Sav’ell Smalls announced his commitment to Washington on Friday via social media.
Smalls' recruitment has been one of the most talked about stories in the state of Washington so far this year. Despite supposedly eliminating the Dawgs a few months ago, Smalls put the UW in his top-six last month.
Just over a month later, Smalls has decided to be a Husky.
The five-star outside linebacker is the No. 18 overall recruit in the 2020 football class, according to 247, and is the highest-ranked recruit to ever commit to UW in the Chris Petersen era.
After spending his previous two seasons at Garfield High School, Smalls enrolled at Kennedy Catholic to join forces with fellow Husky commit and five-star 2021 quarterback Sam Huard.
