This is an absolutely huge get for Washington and offensive line coach Scott Huff, because 99% of the time, a prospect like Myles Murao from Mater Dei High School, would end up at USC. Thankfully for the Huskies, he was a prospect that was interested from the start and the coaches were able to secure his commitment. That was no small task considering the historical forces pulling him to USC, and offers from everyone: Alabama, LSU, Texas A&M, Auburn, and Wisconsin. He officially visited over the summer in June, and committed about one month later.

Welcome to the pack, @MylesMurao.#PurpleReign pic.twitter.com/UhdmTRgobL
Murao is a top-100 overall prospect and the #1 center in the composite rankings (#3 in just the 247 rankings) and will compete right away for playing time. His athleticism, quick feet, and short area quickness mean he plays tackle for his high school team, but his 6-2 frame projects inside, likely at center, at the college level. He has everything you want in an elite offensive lineman: quick feet to shuffle and mirror defenders, strength to run block, athleticism to reach the second level, and a nasty streak.
With Nick Harris graduating, he has the chance right away to lock down the center spot for years to come. He is the jewel in an absolutely loaded offensive line class for the Huskies this year. Welcome to Montlake, Myles!
