Austin Joyner, a four-star defensive back prospect from Marysville-Pilchuck High School, announced during the Semper Fidelis All-America game on Sunday night that he intends to play football for the Washington Huskies.
Joyner originally committed to Washington in November of 2013, but decommitted shortly after then-coach Steve Sarkisian left UW to coach at USC.
Joyner later announced an oral commitment to Washington State, but eventually decommitted after the firing of defensive coordinator Mike Breske.
On Sunday, Joyner announced his intent to play for UW over other finalists WSU and Boise State.
Listed at 5-foot-10 1/2 and 191 pounds, Joyner is considered by Scout.com as the No. 1 cornerback prospect in the state of Washington, and the No. 29 cornerback prospect in the 2015 recruiting class. He was also a standout running back at Marysville-Pilchuck, but made it clear that he prefers to play defense in college.
He is the 22nd player to commit to UW in the 2015 class, and the sixth from the state of Washington. The other five are LB Jusstis Warren (Lincoln); ATH Chico McClatcher (Federal Way); OL Henry Roberts (Bellevue); OL Trey Adams (Wenatchee); and RB Myles Gaskin (O'Dea).
Benning Potoae, a defensive end prospect from Lakes High -- and the younger brother of former Huskies defensive tackle Sione Potoae -- is deciding between Washington and UCLA.
