We're at week 6 of the football season as Washington takes their one bye for the season, and nearly half-way through the regular season. In terms of recruiting, we're still 4 months away from Signing Day (Wednesday, February 4th) but things are heating up - official visits have started, prospects are well underway in their senior seasons and coaches are doing their last rounds of evaluations to see if recruits are meeting projections and to see if any new prospects are emerging.
Washington is currently sitting on 15 known verbal commitments for the 2015 class. Expectations are that they will look to take close to - if not as much as - a full class of 25 kids. It's a solid-looking class so far that already has quite a bit of balance, and while it's not going to finish in the top 3 in the conference in terms of average star rating, they currently stand 6th with a chance to move up depending on how they close with some key prospects.

That's all for now, but with the bye week here UW coaches have been on the road and you can bet that more news will pop up in the coming weeks of new offers, official visits and potentially more commitments - we'll keep you posted as it happens.
