McGary, an offensive tackle prospect, is from Fife High School in Tacoma, Wash.

McGary chose the Huskies over Wisconsin and Washington St. among scholarship offers from other schools. The 6-foot-8, 270lb prospect officially visited Washington on Jan. 24 and then received in-home visits from both Washington St. and Wisconsin last week. currenlty has McGary as a four-star recruit and was widely considered to be Washington Head Coach Chris Petersen's second-most important in-state recruit behind Bellevue High School's Budda Baker.

It is unknown what role Washington coaches have for McGary, and could use him as a defensive end depending on how the depth chart looks next fall.

Via ESPN Insider:

McGary is a projected developmental size prospect with no offensive tackle experience. Has played defensive end where we see toughness and playing strength at the point of attack; shows strong desire when pursuing the football down the line to the sideline. Some time and a red shirt year will be needed to add bulk while learning the technical aspects of the offensive tackle position.
