Head coach Chris Petersen continued to add to his first real recruiting class at the University of Washington, securing the commitment of 4-star recruit Austin Joyner.
The Marysville Pilchuck (Marysville, WA) star announced his decision during Sunday night's Semper Fidelis All-American Bowl, via Scout.com's Chris Fetters.
Petersen sent along the now-recognizable confirmation tweet:
Joyner is the sixth-ranked all-purpose back in America and No. 2 prospect out of the state of Washington. An exciting, athletic player, he is also a candidate to play cornerback at the next level.
A former Washington State recruit—surely there will be no bad blood there—Joyner gives Petersen the top two recruits in the state of Washington, as well as five of the top eight.
FieldGulls.com's Jared Stranger gave his thoughts:

Browning, the Bellevue OT, and now Joyner is pretty sick class. In case you don't know, Joyner is a monster truck: http://t.co/uOxZ9gFQi2
While the Cactus Bowl marked a disappointing finish to Petersen's first season with the Dawgs, he is showing success in the recruiting circles. Washington's class is now ranked No. 26 nationally, and the arrow is pointing up in Montlake.
