Washington Huskies Head Coach Steve Sarkisian and company landed a huge commitment on Tuesday afternoon as four-star offensive guard Natrell Curtis verbally pledged to the Huskies over the Arizona Wildcats and Arizona State Sun Devils.
The 6-3, 335 pound Arizona native is rated as the 15th best guard in the nation, according to the 247Sprots composite rankings, and the No. 9 overall player from the state of Arizona.
Curtis has the size and athleticism to be able to come in and fit well into the offensive run and gun scheme of the Huskies. One of the upsides of Curtis is his overall strength in the trenches as well as his ability to run block and drive defenders downfield.
The commitment of Curtis is huge for the Huskies as he is just the ninth overall commitment for their 2014 class and is just the second offensive lineman to commit joining three-star Matt James. However, even though the Huskies have just nine commitments, they still have the seventh best class in the PAC-12, but they sit at just No. 57 overall in the nation, according to 247Sports.
