UW lands 3-star LB Bierria after late visit

Washington added a fourth linebacker to its 2013 class Wednesday with Keishawn Bierria (Harbor City, Calif./Narbonne) committing to the Huskies on signing day.

The three-star prospect, who was high school teammates with early enrollee Troy Williams, picked Washington over Oregon State and Arizona State.

Bierria was in Seattle over the weekend for his official visit. Washington coach Steve Sarkisian offered him a scholarship early in the trip and that made an impression.

“I felt like I was more of a priority to the team, and that’s huge,” Bierria said after his trip. “Usually, when a school comes in late, they don’t consider you much of a need.”

The 6-foot-1, 210-pound senior is the 23rd member of the Huskies’ current class, the 13th recruit from California to commit to a college career in Seattle.
