Kirkland says it was his dream to play for Washington.
Jaxson Kirkland, a three-star offensive lineman from Portland’s Jesuit High School, made a commitment to the Washington Huskies late Monday night, likely rounding out another top-25 recruiting class ahead of Wednesday’s National Signing Day.
The 6-foot-7, 304-pound Kirkland last week backed away from a previous commitment to UCLA. He chose the Huskies over Oregon.
Kirkland is the son of Dean Kirkland, a captain and starting guard on the Huskies’ 1990 Pac-10 championship team that defeated Iowa in the Rose Bowl.
“It’s a dream offer — growing up I was a die-hard fan,” Kirkland told The Oregonian. “It’s a dream offer, and I was really pumped about that one. It was awesome.”
