Another player who UW was able to get in on due to coaching changes, Carta-Samuels was initially a Vanderbilt commit. James Franklin to Penn State, and K.J. to UW. Thanks, James.

As mentioned above, K.J. was named to the Elite 11 team this past cycle (as was current Husky Jeff Lindquist), and he was made that because of his spectacular arm. He was one of the biggest -- if not the biggest -- in terms of arm strength at that camp.

His high school offense is very run-heavy, so he's still a project under center. On the surface though, he has all the tools you want in today's quarterbacks with his arm strength, accuracy, and ability to move with the ball in his hands. He's also got a nice motion that won't need any major reworking.
