BREAKING: Sixteenth UW Commit A Pleasant One

Early Friday morning, Kamari Pleasant, a 6-foot-1, 185-pound athlete from Etiwanda High School in Etiwanda, California, verbally committed to the Washington Huskies over scholarship offers from Arizona State, USC, Oregon, and others. Pleasant is the 16th prospect to commit to UW for their 2016 recruiting class, and third this week - following Levi Onwuzurike and Arizona’s Byron Murphy.

Kamari Pleasant is ranked by as the No. 86 safety in the country, and No. 14 player in the state of California. He originally verbally committed to Arizona State on Christmas Day, but later de-committed on January 19th after taking an official visit to Washington the prior weekend. 

"My interest in Washington is pretty high," said Pleasant after his official visit to Montlake. "I've been waiting for them to offer me for a pretty long time. I felt like taking an official (visit) wouldn't hurt, keeping my options open."

The Huskies took a player from Etiwanda last year in tight end Mike Neal, and former Husky running back Chris Singleton is also from there. 

We’ll have more from Pleasant on his decision to commit to the Huskies. Below is his senior highlight tape.
