The Washington Huskies’ hot recruiting week continued on Saturday night, when they received a commitment from 4-star linebacker Brandon Kaho, from Reno, Nev.
Kaho reportedly committed while on a recruiting trip on Saturday, according to Lars Hanson of The Dawg Report. News of his commitment was soon shared on social media, with head coach Chris Petersen leading the charge with his signature “Woof” tweet that he sends whenever someone commits:

Kaho is a huge pickup for the Huskies. The 6-fo0t-3, 235-pound Kaho is the fifth-highest-rated inside linebacker in the nation, according to 247Sports, and the No. 129 overall prospect. He held offers from more than a dozen other programs, including traditional powerhouses Alabama, USC and Notre Dame.
Kaho was a longtime commit to BYU, but flipped his commitment on a recruiting visit in Seattle this weekend. He is the Huskies’ fourth-highest-rated prospect of the 2018 class, and their fifth commit this week.
Here’s just a sampling of what Kaho brings to the Huskies:
