SAMMAMISH, Wash. (AP) -- All-state wide receiver Kasen Williams says he's staying home to play for the University of Washington next season.

The 6-foot-3, 200-pound senior at Skyline High School in the Seattle suburb of Sammamish announced his choice on Friday.

Williams' father Aaron played receiver for the Huskies 1979-82.

Williams' signing is a second coup this month for second-year Huskies coach Steve Sarkisian. Another top recruit, tight end Austin Seferian-Jenkins from Gig Harbor, Wash., committed to the UW two weeks ago.

Williams helped Skyline win its third consecutive state championship last fall while catching 74 passes for over 1,200 yards and 20 touchdowns.

He chose Washington over Florida, Notre Dame, California and LSU.
