If you want to keep up-to-date with news concerning the football program all in one easy-to-digest format, feel free to follow me on Twitter and to subscribe to my lists of UW's beat reporters, Washington athletes, Washington coaches, and Washington football prospects. To the Dots!
- Chris Petersen picked up his latest four-star recruit yesterday when Camilo Eifler committed to the Dawgs on ESPNU at The Opening. Check out our discussion of the news here.
- Dawgman's Scott Eklund examines what Eifler will bring to the Huskies ($), and Kim Grinolds spoke to Eifler about his decision.
- Eifler's commitment continues the trend of Washington's 2016 class being light on members, but heavy on stars.
The narrative that Chris Petersen doesn't target top recruits doesn't hold water. Eifler is CP's 16th Scout 4-star in 1.5 years at UW. ...— Adam Jude (@A_Jude) July 10, 2015
… By comparison, Oregon has 22 Scout 4-stars and Stanford has 17 over same period.— Adam Jude (@A_Jude) July 10, 2015
- Dawgman's Kim Grinolds spoke to four-star running back and UW commit Sean McGrew at The Opening.
- OG prospect Michael Eletise trimmed his list to five yesterday, and omitted two California schools—Cal and UCLA—that were widely expected to make the cut. Expect Chris Petersen to fight hard for his services all the way up to signing day.
