The Washington Huskies are capitalizing on the recruiting trail from their recent playoff berth.
For the second time this week, a four-star recruit announced his commitment to Chris Petersen and the Huskies. Receiver Marquis Spiker, who is No. 12 receiver in the class of 2018 according to 247Sports, committed to the Huskies on Friday night.
Spiker chose Washington over USC, Michigan, Washington State, Oregon, and several other teams. Four-star athlete Trey Lowe committed to Washington earlier this week, and that made a difference in Spiker’s decision.
“I was already planning to commit early but when I saw Trey commit earlier in the week, it was even more reason to get it done,” Spiker told Scout.com after his commitment. “I knew they only had one more spot left but like I said, my plan was to commit early anyway. There were no other schools that I was even focusing on or thinking about, it was all Washington for me.
“I have no plans to take any other visits, unofficial or official. I know Coach Petersen doesn’t like committed guys taking visits and that’s no issue for me because I don’t plan to look around or visit anyone else. I just love how I fit in there on and off the field. They plan to move me all around to take advantage of mis-matches and I think I’ll have a chance to step in and contribute right away.”
The 6’3, 175-pound Spiker, from Murrieta, California, is the No. 69 overall player in next year’s recruiting class.
