Smalls is a local talent from Kennedy Catholic High School in Burien, Washington is one of the best athletes and football players in the nation.
What makes this such a big coupe for the Huskies is back on May 1st, Smalls eliminated Washington from his final list of potential schools.
After a few months went by, Smalls warmed up to the idea of staying in his home state and actually re-included the Huskies in his top six schools.
Rumors had been swirling for months that Smalls was warming up to the idea of becoming a Husky and that came to fruition today.
Smalls is 6 feet 3 inches, 230 pounds and possesses freakish athleticism, sizde and speed. He is the biggest get for Washington head coach Chris Petersen in his entire coaching career.
Smalls chose the Washington over Alabama, Florida State, Tennessee, Washington State, Oregon, California, Auburn, Clemson, Colorado, Georgia, Kansas, Louisville, LSU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Oregon State, TCU, Stanford, Penn State, Texas, Texas A&M, Florida, Utah, USC and Florida.
On the rankings scene, Smalls is rated the #1 player in the state of Washington and also the #1 OLB in the entire nation by 247Sports. He is also rated as the #9 overall player in the entire nation.
For the 2020 recruiting class, he becomes the 20th commitment for the Huskies and also the 5th commitment from the state of Washington.
Smalls started out his high school career at Kennedy Catholic and then transferred to Garfield High School in Seattle, before transferring back to Kennedy High School again.
What makes this so special is 2021 Kennedy Catholic quarterback and UW commit, Sam Huard is Smalls teammate and the two of them were together during his ceremony announcement today.
His ceremony was to pick up his jersey for the upcoming Under Armor All-Star Game and then he immediately made his college choice known right after.
After the addition of Smalls, the Huskies 2020 recruiting class moved up to 12th in the nation in 247Sports composite rankings and moved up to 9th in 247Sports rankings.
Christmas literally came early this year for the Washington Huskies coaching staff as they just added and ultra-elite recruit into the Husky family!
