Ed Chang, the 6-foot-7 small forward from Papillion-La Vista (NE) Senior High School, announced his commitment to Mike Hopkins and the Washington Huskies on Monday via Twitter.

“First off, I would like to thank my family for believing in me,” said Chang in a statement released on Twitter. “I’d like to thank everyone who’s been with me throughout my journey on helping me become the player and person I am today.”

According to 247Sports, Chang is ranked as the No. 166 player in the Class of 2018 and the No. 1 player from the state of Nebraska. He is the first commit in Washington’s 2018 class. After landing 2017 Hameir Wright last month, Washington has the No. 20 ranked recruiting class in 2017.

Chang chose Washington over schools such as Creighton, Nebraska, Iowa, and St. John’s, among others. He took an official visit to Iowa last year (Sept. 9). He also took two unofficial visits to Nebraska (Nov. 7, 2015 and Jan. 12, 2016) and an unofficial to Creighton (Feb. 9, 2016). He did not take a visit to Washington.

“I’d like to thank all the schools who have been giving me the opportunity to play basketball at the next level,” said Chang. “But with a lot of talks with my family, I’ve decided to commit to The University of Washington!”

Chang averaged 17.9 points, 7.7 rebounds, 4.0 blocks and 1.2 steals per game last season for the Class A runner-up Monarchs.
