Melvin Davis, as 6-foot-2, 220-pound running back from Harbor City, Calif., and Nathaniel Narbonne High School has given an oral commitment to join the UW freshman class of 2010, accorting to RealDawg.com and Dawgman.com.
"I can confirm that Melvin has committed to the University of Washington," Narbonne coach Byron Moore Sr. told Dawgman on Monday. "He actually just did it while he was talking to the Washington coaches on the phone.
"I'm not sure if they are looking at him on defense, but I know they want to give him a look at runnning back as a big back. He's a guy who doesn't go down easy."
