It's a huge turnaround for Steve Sarkisian and the Huskies, who looked to have initially lost out on Thompson when he declared for Cal at the US Army All-American Bowl.
"@ItsShaqThompson: Just committed to the UNIVERSITY OF Washington #HUSKYNATION" was what Thompson posted at roughly 10:05 pm Tuesday night. Within seconds the news went viral on Twitter, as well as on message boards and chat rooms around the country.
Look for more from Thompson with this major breaking news for Washington recruiting as soon as we are able to reach him.
Joe Davidson, who covers preps for the Sacramento Bee, said via his Twitter account that Thompson picked Washington for many reasons, but mainly because of their high graduation rate, his relationship with current UW DL Coach Tosh Lupoi, and his relationship with former Grant safety James Sample.
Thompson Goes Purple; UW is Golden
