Washington received some good news one day after losing its first game of the season.
Henry Bainivalu, a 4-star offensive line prospect from Skyline High School in Sammamish, announced a commitment Sunday to play football for the Huskies.
Listed at 6-foot-6 and 302 pounds, Bainivalu is considered the No. 19 offensive guard in the 2017 recruiting class, and the No. 1 offensive guard in the state of Washington. He chose the Huskies over reported offers from Oregon, Michigan, USC, Nebraska and others, per Scout.com.
Never miss a local story.
Bainivalu is UW’s 15th known commitment in the 2017 class, and its first offensive lineman. The Huskies are obviously still waiting on the decision of five-star, Graham-Kapowsin tackle Foster Sarell, considered one of the top five recruits in the country at any position and the No. 1 recruit in the state of Washington.
Sarell is the only player among the top five prospects in Washington who has not yet committed to the Huskies. UW has also received commitments from the two highest-rated players in the state of Oregon.
