Washington will return standout edge rushers Bralen Trice and Zion Tupuola-Fetui in 2023.
But next year around this time, reinforcements will be needed.
They probably won’t come from 2024 three-star Jaxson Jones, who rescinded his Husky commitment Monday.
“After careful reconsideration, my family and I have decided to DECOMMIT the University of Washington,” Jones tweeted Monday night. “My recruitment is now 100% open.”
Jones — a 6-foot-3, 215-pound rim from Yuma, Arizona — initially committed after attending the Huskies’ home win over Michigan State on Sept. 17. He has also earned offers from Arizona State, Colorado State, Fresno State, Michigan, Notre Dame, Northern Arizona, Oregon, San Diego State, San Jose State, UNLV, USC and Utah.
A standout at Yuma Catholic High School, Jones is ranked by 247Sports as a three-star recruit, the No. 8 player in the state of Arizona and the No. 19 in the class of 2024. He recorded 87 tackles, 17 sacks, three fumbles, three receiving touchdowns and two blocked punts in 11 games as a junior in 2022.
Washington, meanwhile, is fulfilling commitments made by a pair of three-star 2024 prospects in quarterback EJ Caminong and athlete Landon Bell. They have also offered a total of seven edge rushers.
But the pass rush chase continues.
