- The guys at Dawgman held their weekly podcast on Friday and as always they have some very good recruiting nuggets:
- On Tuesday the Huskies offered Florida WR prospect and Colorado commit Johnny Huntley:
- Unfortunately the courtship didn't last long as the very next day Huntley sent out a tweet saying that he was 100% solid with Colorado and would be shutting down his recruitment:

- Brandon Huffman caught up with TE/DE Devin Asiasi at the Army All-America Bowl practice and the De La Salle stud says he is planning on visiting UW in the coming week.
- The West's top corner, David Long, also spoke with Scout this week and he says he loves what coach Lake is doing in Seattle in regards to developing his players. He also likes the focus that Petersen puts on his players. Washington will get his last official visit, but Michigan will be the last coaches he will have for an in-home visit. Look for Long to make his final commitment sometime between the 18th and 20th.
- UW coaches made a strong run for 5-star LB Mique Juarez, but unfortunately it was not enough. Juarez told Rivals this week that he has narrowed his list of schools down to UCLA and Ole Miss.The article says that Washington is still being "kept in the loop" in case anything should happen with his top schools, but I wouldn't hold out much hope.
- Washington target Byron Murphy was among Scout's top performers at yesterday's All-America game. Also mentioned briefly is Camilo Eifler who tied for a team-high 5 tackles.
- Husky commits Luke Wattenberg and Camilo Eifler were the sole UW representatives at the US Army All-America Bowl this week and both of them spoke with Scout. Eifler says that Washington coaches messaged him on Twitter before he left for San Antonio to tell him which prospects to recruit while he was there.
- Greg Biggins broke down the status of Washington recruiting this week and he says while it is a small class, there is a lot of quality talent signing with UW in 2016.
- A number of Washington targets made MaxPreps' Junior All-American team. Tyjon Lindsey, Hunter Bryant, Wyatt Davis, Dylan McCaffrey (brother of Christian McCaffrey), Austin Jackson, and Biaggio Ali-Walsh (grandson of Muhammad Ali) made the first-team. Darnay Holmes, Henry Bainivalu, Popo Aumavae, and Haskell Garrett made the second-team.
- Sean McGrew can't wait to get on campus:
