Kasen Williams's father, Aaron Williams, also played football for the Huskies. It was long rumored that Williams would attend UW but he made the commitment official tonight at a Skyline football kickoff dinner in Sammamish. By some estimates more than 1,000 people were in attendance for the announcement.  Williams reportedly placed three hats on a  table, representing the University of Washington, Louisiana State University and the University of California-Berkeley.

The 6'2" 195 pound Williams is considered one of the top class of 2011 football players in the state of Washington, rated as a 5-star prospect and the nation's #4 wide receiver by Scout.com

Williams joins Gig Harbor tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins who committed to the Huskies earlier in August. Williams was also recruited by LSU, Notre Dame, California and Florida, among others.
