Commit Impact: Aaron Fuller

Washington picked up their sixth known commitment on Thursday when Lovejoy (Allen, Tx.) WR Aaron Fuller made the decision to become a Dawg. How does his commitment impact the Huskies' 2016 recruiting class and the roster once he arrives next summer? Read on to find out...

Scouting Report: Fuller isn't very big, but where he "makes his money" is out of the slot. The wideout has very good quickness and soft hands. While he's not a burner, he has plenty of speed -- he ran a sub-48 400 meters this spring -- and with his smarts (3.6 GPA), he should be able to pick up Washington's offense pretty quickly. One thing working against Fuller is his size, but he should be able to add some bulk to his frame over the next year or two. His productivity at one of the higher levels in the Texas Prep ranks speaks well for what he should be able to do at the next level.

How He Fits: Once Fuller arrives next summer, he will face a lot of competition at the slot position. 2015 signees Chico McClatcher and Andre Baccellia both were brought in to play the slot position and both will have had a year in the system. John Ross, who will miss the 2015 season while recovering from a knee injury, will also be back in 2016, so there is a very good chance that Fuller will be able to redshirt unless he so good that the coaches can't keep him off the field.

Impact On The 2016 Class: Since this is going to be a small class -- 17 is the projected number the coaches are working with right now -- there isn't a lot of wiggle room. Currently, it appears as if the Huskies will take just two receivers with an outside chance that they could take three if one of their top-rated prospects decides he wants to come aboard.

Just yesterday, we recapped where things stand on the recruiting front as far as receivers are concerned, but, as is always the case with recruiting, things change on a day-to-day, hourly basis.

Heck, we didn't even have Fuller listed as one of the top prospects considering the Huskies.

That being said, the other top targets on Washington's "wish list" include Tyler Vaughns, Dylan Crawford, N'Keal Harry and Chris Taylor-Yamanoah.

Taylor-Yamanoah, a commit to Louisville, appears very close to switching things up, if rumors prove to be true, so the Huskies could essentially be done with receiver recruiting aside from one of the elite receivers deciding he wants to become a Dawg.

The Bottom Line: Fuller chose the Huskies over offers from several Power Five programs including Wisconsin, Iowa, Boston College and Northwestern and he had several more that were giving him a long look. That being said, because he plays slot receiver, Husky fans might not see much from him for a couple of years. That's okay. With his outstanding skill set, which includes soft hands and underrated speed, he could be a real gem in Washington's scheme in the coming years. Top Stories
