News came out late Sunday night that Kevin King, a 6-foot-3, 170-pound cornerback out of Bishop O'Dowd High School in Oakland, Calif., has verbally committed to the University of Washington. The news was confirmed to FoxSportsNEXT by multiple sources, including @WVNation on Twitter, a site that covers West Virginia recruiting. King had been offered by the Mountaineers.

Arizona State, California, Colorado, UNLV, Utah and Washington State were the other schools to have offered King besides UW and WVU.

King becomes Washington's 19th known public verbal commitment for the class of 2013. He is rated three stars by and the No. 45-ranked cornerback in the country. He came onto most recruiters' radar after winning MVP honors at this spring's Oakland NIKE camp and also was an invite to The Opening.

Less than a week ago the Huskies offered King, who expressed then to's Greg Biggins that the UW offer meant a lot to him. “I’ve been talking with Coach Heyward, the DB coach and Justin Wilcox, the DC. I actually got the offer from Coach Sark (Steve Sarkisian) so that was really cool to talk to the head coach and have him offer," King said. He added that he was leaning toward making an early decision, if possible.

We'll have more on this breaking news as notes and quotes become available.
