Consensus four-star wide receiver Chris Lawson from the San Franciso Bay area is headed up to the Pacific Northwest to play for last year's runner-up in the College Football Playoff. Lawson's commitment is an important development for the Washington Huskies.

Per 247Sports, Lawson is the No. 24 wide receiver in the 2025 recruiting cycle and the No. 19 overall player from California.

Lawson chose the Huskies after receiving offers from Cal, Oregon, Penn State, USC and many other prominent college football programs.

Chris Lawson's History

At the high school level, Lawson has been wowing coaches and scouts since he was a freshman. He excels on both offense and defense. Although he is considered talented enough to play cornerback at the Power Four level, he has been recruited primarily as a wide receiver.

The highly athletic 6-foot-1, 185-pound wide receiver and cornerback caught 68 passes for 969 yards and 11 touchdowns last season and added 26 tackles, 3 interceptions and 2 forced fumbles.

According to 247Sports, Lawson is a "smooth and fluid...route runner," and football "just looks easy for him." He demonstrates explosiveness in route running, regularly making prep defenders miss after the catch, as he can "stop and start on a dime" and change direction "without having to gear down or lose much top-end speed." He has innate pass-catching ability and, as a track star, he consistently outruns opponents. He has the versatility to play in the slot or out wide and is a return specialist. Scouts view his ceiling as very high, projecting him as a top-level collegiate player with NFL potential.

Dawgs of Puget Sound

Lawson is the sixth four-star recruit to pledge to the Dawgs' 2025 class, now ranked No. 22 in the country according to On3 and No. 8 in the Big Ten Conference. The class features a strong corps of receivers, with Lawson joining four-star WR Raiden Vines-Bright from Arizona and four-star tight end Vander Ploog from California.

Lawson's commitment is a big step in the right direction for new Huskies coach Jedd Fisch and his staff.
