Camilo Eifler, a highly-regarded linebacker prospect from Bishop O’Dowd High School in Oakland, Calif., announced on Thursday a commitment to play football for the Washington Huskies.

Eifler announced his commitment on ESPNU from Beaverton, Ore., where he is attending The Opening, a recruiting camp for high-profile prospects. He chose the Huskies over other finalists Oregon, UCLA and California. Eifler also holds offers from Michigan, Texas A&M, and a few other Pac-12 schools.

Scout.com ranks Eifler the No. 109 prospect in the 2016 recruiting class and the No. 9 linebacker. He’s considered one of the top linebacker prospects in California and on the west coast.

Eifler told Scout.com: “The mix of academic excellence and football, which a lot of programs don’t have, excluding the Stanfords, the Dukes, the Notre Dames, Vanderbilt. A lot of schools don’t have it in the Pac-12, a very competitive conference. And they have a city to back it up too.”

His commitment gives the Huskies five for the class of 2016, four of whom are considered 4-star prospects by Scout.com.

Eifler’s coach at Bishop O’Dowd is Napoleon Kaufman, the star UW running back (1991-94) who holds the school’s career rushing record.
