Armon and Jayvon Parker twins and fellow defensive linemen at Fordson High School in Dearborn, Mich. announced dual verbal commitments to Washington on Wednesday, three days after completing official visits to Seattle.

According to a UW spokesperson, there has only been one known UW football letterman from the state of Michigan Ionwood’s Art Ahonen, who played halfback for the Huskies from 1932 to 1934.

Though New Mexico running back Aaron Dumas and Pittsburgh linebacker Cam Bright both of whom also visited last weekend announced transfers to UW in the last two days, the Parker twins are the first high school recruits to verbally commit to new Husky head coach Kalen DeBoer.

And athletically, at least, the appeal is obvious. Armon and Jayvon identically listed at 6-foot-4 and 270 pounds — are physically massive prospective monsters along the UW defensive line.

The downside? Both were lightly recruited, ranked as low three-star recruits by 247Sports. Besides UW, Armon’s lone FBS offer came from Illinois, while Jayvon was reportedly offered by Grand Valley State.
