Washington Recruiting: Joe Mathis commits to Huskies

Harry How

The University of Washington added another highly-ranked defensive line prospect in Joe Mathis.

Joe Mathis, one of the top defensive end prospects from the 2013 class, has reportedly committed to the Washington Huskies. Mathis announced his choice during the 2013 US Army All-American Bowl, giving Washington another strong addition to an already strong recruit class.

Mathis is widely recognized as a four-star prospect, was ranked the 11th best strongside defensive end by Rivals.com and was 251st on the ESPN300. The Upland, Calif. native recieved offers from most of the Pac-12 heavyweights as well as from far-off star programs such as Alabama, Texas A&M and Nebraska. Mathis had previously committed and then decommited to Washington, but after surveying the offers available he opted to return to the Huskies.

6'4, 255-pound Mathis has drawn praise for his run defense from both a strength perspective and his ability to pursue the ball. Daeshon Hall, Elijah Qualls and Andrew Basham are other four-star defensive line prospects committed to Washington.
