Landen Hatchett, a three-star interior offensive line prospect from Ferndale (Wash.) High, announced a commitment to Washington on Wednesday.
Hatchett was one of nearly two-dozen recruits to take an official visit to Washington last week when the Huskies landed eight commitments and an additional six during the weekend. His older brother, Geirean, was a four-star prospect in the 2020 class and plays center and guard for the Huskies.
Landen chose Washington over Texas A&M, Michigan, Oregon and USC, all of which he officially visited. Listed at 6-foot-3 and 295 pounds, he is ranked as the No. 736 overall prospect in the 2023 class, per the 247Sports Composite, and the No. 8 prospect in Washington.
Hatchett said that during his official visit, offensive line coach Scott Huff and coach Kalen DeBoer mapped out a vision for his future on the field, which seemed to alleviate some concerns about the possibility of spending multiple seasons competing against his brother at the same position. Like Geirean, Landen projects as a center in college, though Geirean also has practiced at guard.
“They kind of gave me an idea of where I would fit in the depth chart when I come in, and kind of my route to the field,” Hatchett said.
He becomes Washington’s second in-state commitment, joining three-star Puyallup (Wash.) Emerald Ridge edge rusher Jacob Lane, and the Huskies’ 13th commitment overall. Hatchett also is the third offensive lineman to commit in the last week, joining three-star Aurora (Colo.) Grandview tackle Zachary Henning and three-star Orange (Calif.) El Modena tackle Elishah Jackett.
