When you see a "Woof!" from a Husky coach you know good news is soon to follow, and so it is tonight as Keith Taylor - a 4-star CB prospect out of Servite H.S. in Anaheim, CA for the 2017 class - has confirmed he committed to Washington:

From his conversation with Greg Biggins, he notes that he already knew where he wanted to go, so now was the time to say so:

He's got great size for the CB position at a reported 6'2", 180 lbs and is very fluid according to Biggins. A transfer from St. John Bosco H.S., he was originally a fan of UCLA and had them at the top of his list. But a visit to Washington's Rising Stars camp last summer started to turn his attention towards the Huskies and then a return visit to see their game vs. Utah really put Washington out front. At the time he felt he would still take his time in recruiting, but he's obviously changed his opinion and decided to shut things down.
