DB Washington is No. 6 for Washington

A strong day for Washington recruiting got even better on Saturday night.

The Huskies landed their third verbal commitment of the day from three-star defensive back Lavon Washington (Oakland, Calif./McClymonds). He confirmed his pledge in a text message to ESPN.com.

The 5-foot-11, 180-pound prospect chose UW over offers from fellow Pac-12 programs Arizona State, Cal and Oregon State.
