Historic Husky Stadium re-opens Saturday night after a much-needed renovation, and in addition to playing host to the visiting Boise State Broncos, it will also welcome number of recruits taking in the sights and sounds as recruiting season kicks into gear.
While the list is a lengthy one, all but one of the visits are unofficial visits, i.e. the recruit (and his family) pay for the trip - only the tickets to the game are free. That said, they will be able to tour the stadium and facilities and hang out with the coaches, and they'll be the first group to experience the new recruiting lounge (click the link to check out the views they'll have).
Visiting officially is WR Rahshead Johnson. He's been committed for quite a while now, as he verbally pledged in the Summer of 2012 during the Rising Stars camp at the UW on the day that became known to Husky fans as the "St. Tosh Day Massacre" when 8 kids announced for the Huskies.
Visiting unofficially (in alphabetical order):
- DB/WR/RB Budda Baker
- TE Chase Blakely (UW commit)
- OL Drew Clarkson
- OL/DL Marcus Griffin (WSU commit)
- DE/OLB Don Hill (UW commit)
- OLB Drew Lewis (UW commit)
- CB Jonathan Lockett (UW commit)
- CB John Plattenburg
- RB Demario Richard
Also, from the 2015 class the following recruits are expected to attend:
- OL Trey Adams (UW commit)
- RB Austin Joyner
- RB Chico McClatcher
There are others rumored to be attending - I'd expect most (if not all) of top statewide recruits to be on hand.
