Hours after Washington wrapped up its first spring practice, the Huskies received a commitment from three-star defensive back Kamren Fabiculanan.

The 6-foot-1 and and 175-pound Fabiculanan is a cornerback at Westlake Village Westlake (Calif.). He's the composite No. 58 cornerback in the nation and the No. 77 player in the state. 247 Sports considers Fabiculanan to be the 57th-best cornerback and the 81st-best prospect in California. Rivals has him as the No. 62 cornerback and the No. 54 player in the Golden State.

Fabiculanan, per 247 and Rivals, was pursued by several schools and had 14 offers. He had offers from Arizona State, California, Oregon, Oregon State, Washington State and UW. He was also offered Georgia, Iowa State, Nebraska and Vanderbilt.

He helped the Warriors to a 9-3 mark during the 2017 season. Fabiculanan finished the year with 61 solo tackles and 76 total tackles. He also had one interception for 42 yards and a fumble recovery.

Fabiculanan becomes the first defensive back to join the Huskies' 2019 class.

So far, more than 80 out of the 130 Football Bowl Subdivision programs in the nation have at least one commit, per 247 Sports' rankings. Miami, with a nation-high 11 pledges, is one of 16 teams with more commits than UW as of late Wednesday evening. The Huskies are one of four programs with five commits.

As for where that ranks in the Pac-12? UW has the most of any school in the conference. 247 lists there are six Pac-12 schools that only have one commit while there are three schools - Arizona, Arizona State and UCLA - that don't have any.

With those numbers, it's no surprise UW possesses the No. 1 group in the Pac-12, per 247 and Rivals. That said, the Huskies are 247's No. 15 class and Rivals has them 18th.

Graham-Kapowsin quarterback Dylan Morris was the first to commit and he was followed by three-star offensive lineman Nathaniel Kalepo. Three-star running back Cameron Davis pledged to the Huskies in late January. Earlier this month, the Huskies added three-star junior college offensive lineman Corey Luciano.

Recruiting defensive backs was a priority for the Huskies' 2018 class. The Huskies signed two, four-star prospects in Kyler Gordon and Julius Irvin. They also inked three-star cornerback Dominque Hampton. Adding Fabiculanan gives UW depth going beyond 2018 as the team could stand to lose up to seven members of its secondary.
