#Woof: Huskies Land California Defensive Back

Washington gets a pledge from 4-star DB Vincent Holmes

NCAA Football: Pac-12 Conference Championship-Utah vs Washington Kelley L Cox-USA TODAY Sports

The Husky coaches got some more good news today when defensive back Vincent Holmes from San Jacinto HS, CA committed to UW. Rated as the 73rd best athlete in the country by 247 Sports, Holmes has been a big climber in the rankings (he’s a composite 4-star recruit).

Holmes is listed at 6’1” and around 180 pounds, and when you watch him play you can see how instinctive he is on the field. The Huskies beat out Oregon, Colorado, and Arizona for his commitment. Holmes comes from the same high school as current Husky Davon Banks, who also plays in the secondary.

Holmes will likely play safety, but he could play cornerback as well. He’s the 9th commit in the class and 5th this week. Expect more to come in the near future as the Huskies continue their massive recruiting weekend.
