The recruitment of's No. 1 defensive tackle in the 2016 class just got a bit more interesting.

Boss Tagaloa (De La Salle/Concord, Calif.), a 6-3, 295 lb. terror and the nation's No. 36 overall recruit, released his top-12 schools last night, and Washington coaches Chris Petersen and Jeff Choate are surely pleased to see that the Huskies made the cut.

In his scouting report of Tagaloa, Scout's Greg Biggins says the following:

Tagaloa is an elite tackle prospect with the ability to step in and play early in college. He has a great frame and will easily be able to handle more weight without losing any of his athleticism. He's very strong, uses his hands well and has a non-stop motor. He's advanced technique wise already and has multiple pass rush moves. He can bull rush, split a double team and is very strong at the point of attack.
