Troy Williams, Quarterback
Rankings: 10 Scout 4* / 1 Rivals 4* / 9 (247) 4*
Offer sheet: Arizona, Arizona State, Auburn, Florida, UCLA, Wisconsin
Troy is the prototype for the quarterbacks Steve Sarkisian is looking for. He's a pocket QB with the wheels to make a play happen and keep all the spread/option/read stuff in the playbook that seems to be growing more and more as the years go by. Interestingly, Rivals lists him a mobile quarterback, while 247 has him a pocket guy, which I think just reinforces the point about the diversity of his abilities.
You need a quarterback in every class, and this year the Huskies got a really good one, and I'm not sure they could have realistically done a whole lot better. People will say they could have gotten Max Browne, but he's something of a statue in the pocket, and while he'll probably excel at USC, he's not what the Washington staff is looking for.
He has been praised widely as a leader, and has demonstrated this by leading his class in college credits earned, as he has already begun classes at UW.
