"It was my dream school, the school I wanted to be part of since I was a little kid, so when I was there, I just knew I wanted to commit," Chin said when asked about his commitment announcement on Twitter.
"When I was in sixth grade, I actually wrote a paper on what I was going to do when I grew up and one of the things was that I was going to play football for the University of Washington, so when coach (Bush) Hamdan and coach (Jonathan) Smith were down here for my in-home visit and they offered, it was my dream coming true."
So, for a young man in California, one has to wonder, why did the Huskies grab his attention so early.
"Honestly, I don't really know other than the fact that they were good and I liked how flashy their offense was," Chin said. "I also saw the way they played -- they were fired up and they flew around and they played hard -- and I knew I wanted to be part of something like that."
While he was up at Washington for his official visit last weekend, Chin was hosted by two former teammates.
"Jojo McIntosh and Brayden Lenius were my hosts and I spent a lot of time with Jake Browning too," Chin said. "I also got to spend some time with coach Hamdan and he had some cutups of plays to watch and how they would use me.
"They like me at the 'Z' receiver spot and that is the spot where they put their fastest guys and that is a big reason they said they wanted me because they needed more guys with speed out there."
When he committed to the Husky coaches, Chin said they were just as happy as he was.
"They were really excited and I got big hugs from the coaches," Chin said. "They liked the way I play the game and they liked my speed, so they said it was a good fit all the way around."
As a senior this past season, Chin led his team with 37 receptions for 601 yards and five touchdowns and he said he knows he has things to work on before he steps on campus this summer.
"I know I need to get stronger and add size," Chin said. "I want to do everything I can to make it so the coaches have to play me this coming season and that means I need to put in the work this offseason."
Chin will sign his letter-of-intent next Wednesday (February 3rd) and we will have more from him then.
