Head coach Chris Peterson and his Washington Huskies got excellent news on Monday night.
4-star offensive tackle Kaleb McGary committed to Washington.
“The coaches were ecstatic”, McGary said about revealing his decision via Ruth Robbins of 24/7 Sports, “I’ve been bombarded by coaches calling since the decision was made know, “There goes my phone again — its ready to die”, he laughed.
McGary, who attends Fife High School in Tacoma, Washington, was very interested in the Washington State Cougars and Wisconsin Badgers, but in the end, the scenery at Washington helped him make his decision.
“It seemed like it was the best fit for me — Wisconsin was great and had that college town feel but it was just too far way — WSU had a college town feel but it wasn’t surrounded by mountains, so in the end Washington was the clear choice.”
The 6’7, 270-pound McGary is considered 21st ranked offensive tackle prospect, the second best overall prospect in the state of Washington and the 274th best overall prospect in the country, according to 24/7 Sports’ composite rankings.
McGary is the 20th commitment for Washington and is their second highest rated commit behind 4-star quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels.
