Damore'ea Stringfellow, Wide Receiver
Rankings: 11 Scout 4* / NR Rivals 4* / 12 (247) 4*
Offer Sheet: Florida, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, USC
Stringfellow's offer sheet tells you everything you need to know about how good a player he is. He could have gone to any school in the country, and as the top pass catcher on the west coast he chose to come to UW. This is a monster get.
Stringfellow is the kind of tall, big bodied, possession receiver that Washington has not seen since Reggie Williams. He's so massive and strong that he can use his strength to get open and shield himself from defenders, and there aren't many corners than can match him in that regard. He'll have the opportunity to come in and compete for playing time right off the bat with UW in search of compliments to Kasen Williams. It would be something of a surprise if he were to redshirt considering the need that there is at wideout. There's a lot of young depth at the position, but Demore'ea has enough talent to come in and hang tough with every wideout on the roster, and it wouldn't be a complete shock if he earned the #2 or #3 starting spot when this team faces off against Boise State.
The knock of String is that he doesn't have elite speed, but in the college game you don't really need elite speed to be an elite receiver. He makes up for it with his strength (and by no means is he slow), and is much like Kasen Williams in that once he has the ball in space he's a nightmare for smaller defenders to bring down 1 on 1.
