Washington has made almost no noise on the recruiting trail during this cycle, as the Huskies have just five verbal commitments -- tied with Colorado for the fewest in the conference. But Washington has won fairly significant recruiting battles for all five prospects, including three four-star recruits and the two three-star prospects who attended The Opening -- linebacker Camilo Eifler, who announced his commitment at the event, and running back Sean McGrew. Head coach Chris Petersen will have an opportunity to flex his muscles again in-state -- as he did while cleaning up locally with the 2015 class -- with the Bellevue duo of Isaiah Gilchrist and Isaac Garcia. He also has his sights set on some big fish out of state, such as No. 6 overall prospect Rashard Lawrence, who visited campus recently, California stars Steffon McKnight and Tyler Vaughns, and Arizona's Byron Murphy -- all ESPN 300 prospects. Petersen had too much success in closing the 2014 class and putting together the 2015 group to think he won't begin building something big this fall.
