With official visits wrapping up for the weekend, Dawg fans got some great news today as Chico McClatcher made his decision known via Twitter:

Chico is a dynamic playmaker, dubbed a few years back as the "Blue Mamba" by former Husky QB Taylor Barton after seeing him perform in his football camps.  A 4-star athlete who projects as a slot receiver/RB/returner, McClatcher has explosive athleticism (check his highlights below).  He's worked tremendously hard to be in a position to get this offer from Washington and to be eligible, and it's clear the Huskies have been his dream school from the start.
