Ortiz's father has confirmed that the University of Washington gave a verbal offer today.
Jalen comments on the offer, "It feels great to finally get my first offer, especially coming from a school like Washington. I was excited when Coach Taylor (Centennial head coach) told me that they offered. I have always liked Washington but getting an offer from them this early came as a surprise."
