SPOKANE -- Gonzaga Prep running Bishop Sankey is changing his mind at the last minute.

The Greater Spokane League's all-time leading rusher will play football at Washington next season instead of Washington State.

Sankey originally committed to the Cougars a year ago, but will sign a National Letter of Intent to play for the Huskies next Wednesday, according to realdawg.com.

"I'm a Dawg" Sankey told the website on Tuesday. "I know it sounds like a selfish decision, but I know I'm solid on Washington."

Sankey also received scholarship offers from Maryland, Hawaii, Minnesota, and Bowling Green, among other schools.

A four-star recruit by Scout.com, Sankey shattered the GSL's career rushing record, pounding out 4,529 yards in his time at Gonzaga Prep. The previous record was 3,937 yards by Central Valley's Tyree Clowe.

Stay tuned to KREM 2 News and KREM.com for all the latest on this breaking story. We'll also have full coverage of National Letter of Intent Signing Day, including an interview with Sankey after he signs his letter, on February 2nd.
