Weekend Recruiting Wrap Up

New, 76 comments

The biggest news coming out of the weekend is what we can confirm: Coleman Shelton has committed, and will sign with the Huskies on Wednesday. He' an under the radar offensive tackle who looks really impressive. Most are not sure how he went under the radar for so long, because his highlights are really good, but whatever the reason may be the Huskies were the beneficiaries and that's fine with me, as I'm sure it is with the Dawg Pound.

Tyrell and Tyree Robinson are reported to have had a good trip this weekend, and it was enough to make them reconsider their Oregon verbals. The word has always been that one of them likes UW more than the other, and that may not have changed, but it's a good job by the staff to make these kids think it over for the next few days. Oregon is still probably the favorite here, but the odds went from something like 90/10 to 60/40. They've been thought of to be a package deal, but if one really loves Washington and the other Oregon... weirder things have happened than them deciding to part, though that would be a pretty sizable curveball.

Kieshawn Bierria's visit also went very well. He was offered the scholarship he's been waiting on, and will be a signing day decision. At this point the Huskies are the heavy favorite, and it will be pretty surprising if he heads somewhere else.

The unoffical visits that the staff was counting on didn't go as well as hoped though. Neither Myles Jack or Nico Falah made it to campus. Logic would dictate that in Jack's case that means he's gone. If he really wanted to be a Husky, he could have made that short drive to campus this weekend. In Falah's case it's a little different being that he's in Southern California. Falah has been throwing smoke all throughout the process, so we won't know about him until signing day.

Lavon Coleman took his official to Fresno State this weekend and will now be a signing day decision. Not what you want to hear about a kid who has been committed for so long, but when all is said and done he should be in the purple and the gold. Not a lot of kids choose to play for Fresno State when they have Pac-12 offers.

Daeshon Hall apparently did not take a visit visit to TCU this weekend, and was said to be leaning to perhaps signing with Texas A&M on Wednesday, but rumors have started to swirl about Torrodney Prevot, another Houston DE, switching his commitment from USC to A&M, which caused Hall to want to stick with the Huskies. Many experts think he'll stay with the Dawgs, but this is certainly one to keep an eye on.

Reuben Foster is supposed to be committing today at 7 PM, but the Huskies are not expected to be his landing spot. I've heard he's heading to Auburn, but with as many flips and flops as he's had on the way none of the SEC schools he's looking at would surprise me.

Eddie Vanderdoes is going to make everybody sweat out his commitment, as he will not announce his intentions until Wednesday evening, around 5 PM. The Huskies are right in the thick of his recruitment though, and could make a big splash late in the day.
