Huskies pick up commitment from Matteo Mele, a 4-star offensive tackle prospect

Matteo Mele, a four-star offensive tackle prospect from Tucson, Arizona, announced Monday that he intends to play for the Washington Huskies.

Mele recently visited UW and told that he “liked everything about it there.” He also lists offers from Colorado, Louisville, Oklahoma, Oregon, UCLA and others.

A converted tight end, Mele is rated by as the No. 1 offensive tackle prospect in Arizona and the No. 22 offensive tackle prospect in the 2018 class. He becomes the ninth known player to commit to UW in the 2018 class, and is the seventh four-star prospect in that group.
