O’Dea High School running back Myles Gaskin, one of the state’s top recruits for the Class of 2015, has committed to Washington, according to Scout.com and 247sports.com.

Gaskin, a dynamic runner listed at 5-feet-10, 180 pounds, is rated as a four-star recruit by Scout. He rushed for more than 2,000 yards last season and was named to The Seattle Times all-state team.

Gaskin rushed for 524 yards and 10 touchdowns on 35 carries in O’Dea’s three Class 3A playoff games last season.

UW, under the Steve Sarkisian regime, was the first to offer Gaskin a scholarship in November. Since then, Washington State and Arizona State had also offered him, and Scout reported that Oregon and Oregon State have shown recent interest in him.

Gaskin is the first known recruit to commit to new UW coach Chris Petersen for 2015. Another top in-state recruit, Wenatchee offensive lineman Trey Adams, made a verbal commitment to the Huskies last summer.

Here are some of Gaskin’s highlights.
