SEATTLE — After being committed to USC for more than nine months, four-star prospect Tuli Letuligasenoa will be coming to Washington instead.
Letuligasenoa announced Monday he would back off his pledge from the Trojans to join UW and be part of the Huskies’ 2018 recruiting class.
Huskies coach Chris Petersen and his staff have added on to an already highly regarded recruting class.
It’s a group that now features 11 composite four-star prospects. Both 247 Sports and Rivals deemed UW’s class as the No. 1 group in the Pac-12 prior to Letuligasenoa’s commitment.
Letuligasenoa is rated by Rivals as the No. 10 defensive tackle in America. 247 has him 13th.
The longtime former Trojan commit took an official visit to Montlake in the final weekend leading up to National Signing Day.
He’s the fifth Californian in the class. The Huskies received a commitment Jan. 31 from four-star Anaheim Servite (Calif.) defensive back Julius Irvin.
UW wrestled Irvin away from USC and did the same with Letuligasenoa, who raised eyebrows after he didn’t sign with USC during the early period.
