Four-star QB K.J. Carta-Samuels commits to Washington Huskies


Way back in July, four-star quarterback prospect K.J. Carta-Samuels was offered by the Vanderbilt Commodores. Seeing how successful the Commodores had been under head coach James Franklin with K.J.’s brother, Austyn, at quarterback, he committed on the spot.

However, after Franklin left to take the head coaching job at Penn State, Carta-Samuels decided to decommit less than two weeks ago.

Despite his decommitment, he wanted Vanderbilt to know he still feels strongly about their program.

On Wednesday, Carta-Samuels pledged to sign with the Washington Huskies.


New head coach Chris Peterson is obviously one of the main reasons he made his decision. Carta-Samuels visited Peterson and the Huskies over the weekend.

“The Washington visit was awesome,” Carta-Samuels said in a text message to Darren Sabedra of the San Jose Mercury News. “I had a ton of fun. It was sweet. Great facilities. Great coaches. Just an awesome environment.”

The 6’2, 210-pound Carta-Samuels is regarded as the nation’s 11th best pro style quarterback according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings. Carta-Samuels attends Bellarmine Prep in San Jose, California and is considered the 19th best player in the state and the 166th best player overall.

He chose Washington over Vanderbilt, Penn State, the Boise State Broncos, who he visited this week and the Arizona Wildcats, among others.
