  • Your weekly Foster Sarell update: The 2017 five-star offensive lineman recruit was named to the 2017 U.S. Army All-American Bowl earlier this week. Sarell also made an official visit to Notre Dame for their game against Stanford.

King 5 visited Sarell at Graham-Kapowsin and interviewed him and his parents:

247 Sports also wrote about Sarell earlier this week:

Undefeated and No. 5 ranked Washington remains the 247Sports Crystal Ball favorite to keep the elite talent home. Sarell was in the stands for the Huskies win over Stanford and has plans to return for an unofficial for the Oregon State game.

“They’re playing phenomenal football firing on all cylinders, playing fast,” Sarell said. “It’s exciting to see Washington be so successful on a national level. I’m excited for them, they’re great people there. I’m going to keep working hard and growing my relationship with them.”

  • 2017 four-star offensive lineman recruit Henry Bainivalu was featured by the Seattle Times earlier this week:

Just last weekend, the Spartan took his first of five official recruiting visits to Oregon. Michigan, Nebraska, and Washington also are high on his list.

Where Bainivalu, listed as a four-star recruit, will end up going to college remains up in the air.

To me, it’s more about the people,” Bainivalu said. “I know they’re all great schools to be at. It will come down to what kind of vibe I get from them. It is where I am going to spend the next four or five years.”

  • 2017 four-star safety recruit Isaiah Pola-Mao received an offer from Michigan last week. Pola-Mao is considered a favorite to Washington per 247 Sports, but also has interest in Michigan and Arizona State, among other scools.
  • Per, four-star athlete recruit Jaiden Woodbey is high on Washington ($).
  • 2018 four-star cornerback recruit Isaac Taylor-Stuart received some handwritten letters from the Washington coaching staff earlier this week:

Oregon offered Taylor-Stuart the day after the Ducks’ loss to the Huskies.

  • posted some game clips of 2017 four-star cornerback target Elijah Molden. The Oregon native will be on campus for an official visit on Oct. 22nd in Washington’s game against Oregon State.
  • 2017 UW commit, four-star running back Connor Wedington continues to have an impressive senior year at Sumner High School. Here’s a touchdown highlight from his team’s win this past weekend: updated its 2017 prospect rankings, ranking Wedington as the No. 1 Athlete recruit in the West region:

Wedington has had a dominant senior year on both sides of the ball and would be ranked a top 100 prospect at either safety or running back. Physically, the development he has shown in the last year is remarkable and his combination of size, speed and overall athleticism is at a college level right now. It will be interesting to see what side of the ball he plays at once he gets to Washington but it's definitely a good problem to have.

  • Last but not least, a quick bit on 2017 three-star quarterback commit Jake Haener:
