Washington adds commitment from 4-star safety out of Texas
Washington has its second commitment in as many days.
On Monday, Missouri City (Texas) Fort Bend Marshall safety Joshua Lair gave his verbal commitment to the Huskies. Lair was on an official visit to UW over the weekend, where he was treated to a 59-32 drubbing of Cal.
The Huskies beat out Baylor, LSU, and Texas for his services. Lair took official visits to each of the three in the summer.

Lair is a 6-foot-1, 185-pound defensive back in the 2024 class. In the industry-generated 247 Composite, he’s a 4-star recruit and the No. 40 safety in the class. Overall, he ranks No. 430 in the national player rankings.
He finished his junior season with 54 tackles, 13 tackles for loss, three sacks, three forced fumbles, two interceptions, and one touchdown return.
His commitment gives UW its 14th known pledge in the 2024 cycle. On Sunday, the Huskies added 3-star Clovis (Calif.) North offensive lineman Davit Boyajyan to the class.
With UW rolling on the football field — up to No. 7 in the country and 4-0 — steam is starting to pick up on the recruiting trail as well. Coach Kalen DeBoer has this Husky team positioned well to make a run at the College Football Playoff. If they keep winning, more and more attention will turn to Seattle, which should only help continue to grow this class.
