Liberty OT Troy Fautanu chooses Washington

The top offensive lineman in the state has made his college choice.

Liberty senior tackle Troy Fautanu announced his commitment to the University of Washington vis Twitter on Thursday. Fautanu is the top football player in Southern Nevada, according to 247Sports and was named to last year’s all-state second team.

His commitment is nonbinding and Washington coaches cannot comment on him until he signs.
