Huskies get commitment from three-star tight end recruit

Earlier this month, the Huskies were the first school to offer Michael Neal a scholarship.

Thursday night, he accepted.

Neal, a Scout.com three-star tight end recruit from Etiwanda, Calif., announced his verbal commitment to Washington on Twitter late Thursday. He said he feels “really comfortable” with the UW coaches.

“I’m extremely blessed,” Neal said in a message to The Seattle Times. “I’m an underrated player and they saw something in me that other coaches couldn’t, and they feel like a really good fit for me. …

“They also provide a great education and live in beautiful Seattle. Plus, purple looks good on me.”

Neal, 6 feet 5 and 210 pounds, becomes the fourth known recruit to commit to the Huskies for the Class of 2015, joining quarterback Jake Browning of Folsom, Calif.; O’Dea running back Myles Gaskin; and Wenatchee offensive lineman Trey Adams.

Here’s a link to highlights of Neal’s junior season.
