It’s been quite a couple of days for head coach Chris Peterson and the Washington Huskies. On Wednesday, Peterson landed commitments from four-star quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels and three-star running back Jomon Dotson. On Thursday, Carta-Samuels landed an excellent target to throw to when three-star wide receiver Dante Pettis committed to Washington.

The 6’1, 170-pound Pettis attends J. Sierra High School San Juan Capistran, California where he played wide receiver, defensive back and special teams. However, he projects as a wide receiver on the next level. According to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings, Pettis is the 887th best overall player, the 119th best wide receiver and the 81st best player in California in the class of 2014.
Pettis was recruited by Peterson when he was still the Boise State Broncos’ head coach and Boise State will continue to recruit him. In fact, he has an official visit to Boise scheduled this week.
He officially visited Washington last week.
