What started out as a difficult recruiting day for the Huskies with the Lakes offensive tackle Zach Banner choosing USC over UW, got a little better Monday evening as Shaq Thompson of Sacramento’s Grant High committed to the Huskies.

The nations No. 1 safety recruit announced his commitment via Twitter …

At 6-2, 230 pounds, Thompson is rated as a five-star prospect by Scout.com and a five-star recruit by Rivals.com. Both sites have him rated as the top safety prospect in the country. ESPN has him rated as the third best safety …. Here’s his profile for ESPN.

It’s a huge get for the Huskies. Any sort of playmakers they can add defensively is important. But Thompson projects to be a difference maker.
