Washington has done an impressive job of luring recruits away from previous commitments ever since hiring Tosh Lupoi, but on Wednesday morning the Huskies felt the sting of having one of their own commitments flip.

Wide receiver Michael Rector had previously committed to the Huskies, but on Wednesday the Bellarmine Prep (Wa.) product signed a letter of intent to play at Stanford.

Rector is 6-foot-2 and 189 pounds. He played both wide receiver and defensive back in high school, and was one of the more prolific receivers in the state of Washington. Tom Lemming called Rector "super fast" which should benefit the Stanford offense, as he may provide a reliable deep threat that the Cardinal seemed to be lacking at receiver in 2011.
