"I'm going to stay home for the next four or five years," Habben said about his commitment to the University of Washington. "I called coach (Tyrone) Willingham right before the press conference and told him and he was very excited."
Habben spurned offers from California, Oregon, Oregon State, Utah, Arizona State, Washington State and Iowa State to become a Husky.
"Basically I made this decision over Iowa State," Habben said. "My family out there is three or four hours away and I'd want to see them all the time, but I would only be able to see them every once in a while.
"It came down to academics at Washington. They were impressive and it will open a lot of doors for me down the road."
Habben becomes the 16th commitment to the Huskies 2006 recruiting class and will sign his letter of intent on February 1st when players can officially accept scholarship offers.
Dawgman.com will have more from the big man from the plateau later on this afternoon.
Habben makes his choice
