Joyner Commits To UW

Washington got some good news Sunday evening when four-star Marysville (Wa.) Pilchuck ATH Austin Joyner committed to the Huskies on national television while playing in the Semper Fidelis All-American Game...

"I'm taking my talents to the Huskies," Joyner said as he put a Washington hat on his head shortly after the start of the second half.

At different times in the recruiting process, Joyner had been committed both Washington and Washington State, but he opened things up in December and took visits to Montlake and to Boise State.

Joyner is one of the most prolific runners in the state over the last decade, rushing for over 5,000 yards in his three years as a starter for the Tomahawks.

As a senior, the talented athlete racked up 1,768 yards and 32 touchdowns on just 133 yards. He also hauled in seven receptions for 107 yards and a touchdown, threw a pass that went for a 46-yard touchdown and he also had 60 tackles on defense. He was named the Gatorade State Player of the Year.

The senior made it clear during the summer that he wanted to play defensive back and thus all of the schools still recruiting him, including the Huskies, had told him that he can play in the secondary for them.

We hope to have more from Joyner on his decision and we will be sure to update news as it happens with this developing story.
