4-star QB prospect K.J. Carta-Samuels says he'll play for Washington

K.J. Carta-Samuels, a 4-star quarterback prospect from San Jose, Calif., wrote on his Twitter page today that he plans to play football for Washington.

Carta-Samuels was one of the highest-rated players being targeted by UW and new coach Chris Petersen. He was also considering Boise State and Vanderbilt, before posting a short while ago that he'd dropped Vanderbilt from consideration. Then he announced his "commitment" to UW.

It seems likely that Carta-Samuels will be the only quarterback taken in the 2014 class. As of right now, he's the highest-rated player to announce his intention to play for UW -- ranks him the No. 23 quarterback in the class -- though the Huskies are still waiting on Bellevue athlete Budda Baker, who is considered the best player in the Northwest.

Here are some Carta-Samuels highlights.
