You knew it was just a matter of time before it happened. And it was worth the wait.
Skyline standout OL Henry Bainivalu finally made it official and committed to the Chris Petersen and the Washington Huskies. News broke late this afternoon.
Bainivalu is a 4* prospect with offers from Michigan, USC, Nebraska, and Oregon, among others. He is widely viewed as the top offensive line prospect in the state excepting offensive tackle Foster Sarrell. At 6’6” and 302 pounds, he projects as a big guard with the requisite athleticism to pull and block in space.
This is the second major commit of the weekend following news that 4* DB Elijah Molden had also committed. Bainivalu is the first offensive lineman to commit.
The Huskies now have 15 players committed to the class of 2017. Most analysts agree that the class may have room for two to three more commits.
