The Huskies are officially rolling.
On Saturday, Washington added its fifth commitment in the last week with the announcement that 2023 4-star athlete Vincent Holmes will begin his career with UW. Holmes shared the news on social media along with a video highlighting the exact moment he let everyone know his decision.

The San Jacinto (Calif.) product chose the Huskies over interest from a number of other Pac-12 programs, including Colorado, Arizona, Oregon State, UCLA, USC, and Washington State, among others.
Holmes is well-regarded as a recruit, checking in as a 4-star in the industry-generated 247 Composite as well as the 264th overall recruit in his class. He ranks as the 16th-best athlete and the 17th-best prospect from the talent-rich state of California.
As a receiver last fall, Holmes had 32 receptions for 633 yards and five scores. He added 15 tackles and two tackles for loss as a defensive back, accounting for four interceptions and another four pass breakups.
According to DawgMan.com’s Chris Fetters, Holmes will start as a defensive back for UW. A 6-foot-1, 175-pound defensive back, he was in town for an official visit just this past week and came away clearly impressed.
Holmes’ pledge gives UW its ninth known commitment for the 2023 cycle and its third from a blue-chip recruit. You can view his highlight tape below, via Hudl:
