The Times’ Adam Jude has this story (also has more info in this blog post):

Four-star running back recruit Austin Joyner from Marysville-Pilchuck gave a verbal commitment on Tuesday to join Washington’s Class of 2015, per his Twitter account.

“Every time I go down there, it’s like a family environment with the coaches,” Joyner told The Seattle Times Tuesday night. “They are real psyched about me … and it’s a really good vibe every time I go there. So why wait?”

Joyner called UW coach Steve Sarkisian on Tuesday evening to inform him of his decision.

“He was extremely exited,” Joyner said. “He was yelling all kinds of stuff. He wanted to go run around the tell the rest of the staff.”

Joyner, 5-feet-11 and 186 pounds, ran for 2,038 yards and 22 touchdowns and was named to the all-area team by The Seattle Times as a sophomore in 2012.

He is listed as a four-star recruit by both Scout and 247sports.com.

Among Pac-12 schools, Joyner also has offers from Washington State and Oregon State.

Joyner is UW’s third known commitment for the Class of 2015, joining Wenatchee offensive lineman Trey Adams and defensivelineman Jacob Daniel of Fresno, Calif.

Verbal commitments are non-binding.
