SEATTLE (AP) - Chris Petersen landed a gem to cap his first recruiting class at Washington.
Five-star defensive back Budda Baker, The Associated Press Washington state player of the year, was the top recruit to commit to Petersen and the Huskies during national signing day on Wednesday. Baker announced his commitment on local television on Tuesday night and then confirmed it on Wednesday morning by sending his national letter of intent.
Petersen's first class went in waves. He saw some players follow him from Boise State to Washington but also lost a few recruits who chose to follow former coach Steve Sarkisian to USC.
Baker was the top of the class, but Washington also was able to sign quarterback K.J. Carta-Samuels, cornerback Naijiel Hale and defensive lineman Kaleb McGary.
