Bryce Sterk, a defensive end from Lynden High School, has made a verbal commitment to the Huskies, a source confirmed.
Sterk, who was on his official visit to UW this weekend, is listed at 6 feet 5 and about 230 pounds. He is rated as a three-star recruit by 247sports.com and a two-star recruit by Scout. He also had offers from Eastern Washington, Portland State and Wyoming, according to Scout.
As a senior, he had 84 tackles, 10 sacks and six forced fumbles.
“Washington likes me as a pass-rush specialist, something like what Hau’oli Kikaha played this past season, and they said they like my motor,” Sterk told Scout last week. “Rushing the quarterback is definitely my specialty. I like to get after the quarterback and disrupt things and feel like I do that pretty consistently.”
Here are his hudl.com highlights.
He is UW’s 24th known recruit for this recruiting for this class and the eighth from Washington.
Blessed to say that this morning I committed to the University of Washington, thank you for all the support that you have given me #GODAWGS
