Washington added to its 2016 recruiting class on Thursday, picking up a commitment from Henderson (Nev.) Findlay Prep small forward Carlos Johnson.
"Next year I'll be attending the University of Washington," Johnson told Scout.
The 6-foot-4, 235-pound three-star prospect originally signed with UNLV but asked out of his Letter of Intent following the Rebels' coaching change.
"I just feel like it's a great fit for me," Johnson said. "Coach (Lorenzo) Romar has done some great things and has a lot of players in the league. I trust him and his vision he sees in me to prepare me for the next level and also to prepare me to be a better man."
Johnson's bond with the coaching staff and team played a big role in his decision.
"It's just like a family," he said. "It was like we already knew each other. We were already a family and it felt like we already knew each other for years."
"We want to win the Pac-12 and hopefully win a national championship," he said.
