Husky coaches got some welcome news today when 4 star linebacker Will Latu from Bethel HS, WA committed to UW over offers from USC, Michigan, Tennessee, and Utah (Utah and UW were his 2 finalists).
Listed at 6’2” and around 225 pounds Latu is rated as the 13th best athlete in the country per 247 Sports. The Huskies are planning to play Latu at inside linebacker where he can use his size and hard hitting ability to cause disruption. Latu is a big pickup for the Huskies. When you watch him play you can really see how athletic he is. The Huskies will more than likely try to add another inside linebacker to pair with Latu in the 2021 class.
Latu is the 10th commit in the 2021 class (of what is expected to be around 21 commits).
