UW secures fourth known commitment

On Tuesday afternoon, the Washington coaches received some good news on their trip to visit 2014 Coeur d'Alene (Id.) tight end Chase Blakley. After coming away impressed from his multiple visits to Seattle over the past year, Blakley decided to end his recruitment and elected to become a Husky…

Blakley announced his decision via Twitter moments ago, and chose UW over offers from Idaho, Idaho State, Eastern Washington and Wyoming. He also had been receiving heavy interest from Florida, Michigan, Oklahoma and UCLA before making his decision.

He joins Don Hill in a group of prospects who have pledged to the Huskies from Idaho for the 2014 class. He is the first TE commit for the Huskies in the 2014 class.

Blakley has visited Seattle many times in the past and has only raved about those visits. On his most recent visit, Blakley took in the UW spring game at Memorial Stadium.

""It was a great trip and I'm glad I got to make it out there," Blakley told Dawgman.com at the time. "My dad and my brother, Drew Berger, both came out with me and we all had a great time there.

As a junior in 2012, Blakley hauled in 51 receptions for 598 yards and seven scores, using his outstanding size and soft hands to be a complete mismatch for Vikings opponents.

We'll have more from Blakley later today.
