Jaydon Mickens, a wide receiver recruit out of Los Angeles, CA made a verbal commitment to the Washington Huskies on Tuesday night.
According to his Rivals.com profile, Mickens is a four-star recruit and the No. 11 best wide receiver in the class of 2012.
Mickens chose the Huskies over Oklahoma State. Though he is only 5'8", his athleticism and speed garnered him scholarship offers from several Pac-12 schools including California and USC. Mickens will join former Dorsey High school teammates and current Huskies Matthew Lyons (Linebacker) and Marvin Hall (Wide Receiver).
This latest commitment for Huskies Head Coach Steve Sarkisian caps off a successful recruiting day. The Huskies also gained commitments from OL Shane Brostek (Kamuela, HI) and Jordan Payton (Westlake Village, CA),.
