Washington lands commitment from 2025 defensive lineman out of California
Washington has landed a commitment from Sacramento (Calif.) Inderkum defensive lineman Josiah Sharma.
The 6-foot-5, 295-pound defender announced his commitment to the Huskies on Monday, just hours before Kalen DeBoer’s team kicked off against Texas in the College Football Playoff. Sharma chose UW over Washington State, Arizona, and Nevada.
Happy New year! 2023 does not owe me nothing! My family and I has had an exceptional year and 2024 has started off GREAT. I am pleased to announce that I have decided to choose University of Washington as my college home. Thank you all that has believed in me, pic.twitter.com/786b440X5X

Sharma took visits to Washington in the summer of 2023 and then was on campus for the win over Oregon in October. He’s a somewhat under-recruited prospect in the 2025 cycle, and brings some versatility to the defensive line. He wrestles and plans to throw discus and shot put.
The evaluators at 247Sports have him rated as a 3-star prospect and the No. 58 defensive lineman in the class. He’s the No. 66 prospect from the state of California.
Washington holds two known commitments in the 2025 class now, with Sharma joining 3-star Laguna Beach quarterback Jackson Kollock.
