A fourth Boise State recruit flips to UW

Jesse Sosebee, a 6-foot-6, 300-pound offensive lineman from Edison High in Hungton Beach, Calif., has committed to Washington, according to multiple recruiting sites.

Sosebee is rated a two-star recruit by Scout, Rivals and 247sports.com.

Sosebee is the 13th recruit committed to join UW and the fourth recruit to switch his commitment from Boise State and follow Chris Petersen and the new coaching staff to UW. He is also the third offensive linemen to commit for this class, joining Matt James (Coeur d’Alene) and John Turner.

Sosebee was among the 15 recruits who made his official visit to UW over the weekend.

“I actually committed to (Washington) on Sunday, but I wanted to wait and just make sure everything was right and in order,” Sosebee told Dawgman.com. “Boise State is a great program and they will do well over there, but I had to do what was best for me and that’s playing for Washington and being a Husky.”

He told Dawgman that he’ll likely play guard at UW.

“The strength and conditioning coach up there (Tim Socha), he played offensive line and he said he’s been with coach Petersen since the beginning,” Sosebee said. “Then he said, ‘You have two options, you can either get on the train and go for the ride or you can watch it leave.’ I didn’t want to watch it leave. I wanted to ride that train and be part of what they have going on up there.”
