The Huskies continued their recruiting momentum today when 3 star cornerback James Smith from St John Bosco HS, CA committed to UW over offers from Oregon, Michigan, UCLA, and ASU. He trimmed his list to just UW and Oregon a few weeks ago.

Smith, who is listed at roughly 6’1” and around 180 pounds, was a backup corner at St. John Bosco last year (playing behind UW's Trent McDuffie and USC's Chris Steele). Smith’s stock has really exploded this summer when schools were able to see him live. The Huskies offered Smith this summer after seeing him play DB at one of their California camps. When you watch his film, Smith plays very physical and makes receivers earn any catch they make. Here are some of his highlights:
Smith is the 15th known commit for the class and the first for Jimmy Lake and #DBU. That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
