4 star defensive back Julius Irvin out of Servite High School in Anaheim, California signed his letter of intent this morning to officially become a Washington Husky. He is listed as the #12 safety and #156 prospect overall in the 2018 class in 247sports’s composite rankings.
Irvin is listed on most recruiting sites as a safety but the Huskies recruited him at corner and will start him playing there. At almost 6’1” and 177 pounds before he gets in the Washington weight room he has the size to be a standout on the outside in man coverage. He finished his senior season with 52 tackles, 2 tackles for loss, 5 interceptions, and 11 passes defended at safety.
Irvin selected the Huskies over Notre Dame, USC, and Alabama. However, he had a winding recruitment. He originally planned on committing during the early signing period but after his mother went through a medical emergency decided to postpone. Alabama offered late in the process and Irvin took an official visit but decided to commit to Jimmy Lake and Washington who had been with him since the beginning.
With the trio of Irvin, Hampton, and Gordon the Huskies potentially have their base nickel corners figured out for a long time.
Here are some of his highlights.
