Skyline High School star Kasen Williams has announced his plans to attend the University of Washington.
The 6-foot-3, 200-pound senior receiver was expected to pick the UW, and follow in the footsteps of his father, Aaron, who played receiver for the Huskies from 1979 to 1982.
Williams made the announcement at Spartan Stadium after a scrimmage Friday evening.
Williams recently narrowed his list to a final five that included Florida, Notre Dame, California, Louisiana State and Washington. In a radio interview earlier this week, he said his list was down to two schools but would not reveal the names.
Williams will be a key piece to the Huskies’ 2011 recruiting class, which already includes Gig Harbor tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins, who made his announcement Aug. 16.
As a junior in 2009, Williams finished with 1,209 receiving yards and 20 touchdowns. The Spartans open the season at Liberty on Sept. 3.
