- 3-star QB Chase Garbers visited UW last Monday taking in spring practice, touring the campus, and talking Xs and Os with Jonathan Smith. He says he loved every bit of it and said the atmosphere around the program was special. Greg Biggins broke down Garbers' recruitment and says the QB is in no rush right now and is looking at making a summer decision.

- 4-star DE Jaelan Phillips is one of the top defensive prospects in California and along with the local schools he says Washington is high on his list. He says he has a great relationship with the coaching staff and really loves the brand of defense that the Huskies play.
- ($) 3-star WR Ty Jones out of Provo, Utah is planning on making the trip up to UW at the end of the month for Washington's Spring Preview. He says he has a solid relationship with Bush Hamdan. Jones, who recently decommitted from Utah, is LDS so his offer from hometown BYU will certainly present a tough challenge for the Huskies.
- Local 4-star TE prospect Hunter Bryant updated Scout on his recruitment this week. He's giving a long look at the LA schools, but still has the Huskies high on his list and is hoping to take a visit to Montlake soon.
- Greg Biggins caught up with UW commit Connor Wedington down at the IMG 7v7 tournament. He says though his commitment is solid, he is still hearing from other schools and according to Rivals he's at least listening to what those schools have to say:
- 4-star UCLA DE commit Hunter Echols, who nearly committed to UW before choosing the Bruins, says he'll be visiting Washington this coming weekend:
- Rivals takes a look at 5 prospects who they feel could have a major impact early in their college careers and UW commit Keith Taylor makes the list.
- UW gave 4-star QB target Braxton Burmeister a deadline to make a commitment and when that deadline passed without a pledge, the Huskies began looking elsewhere. They offered 4-star QB Jack Sears shortly thereafter:
- The biggest story of the weekend was the news that the nation's top 2017 prospect, Najee Harris, would be on campus for Junior Day. Najee grew up in the area and still has family in Seattle. He is committed to Alabama, but is still considering other schools.
- ($) Talented 2018 WR Braden Lenzy from Tigard (Ore.) High School made the trip to Montlake this weekend and said it went great. He says the atmosphere and the facilities especially stood out to him.
- 3-star OT Jaxson Kirkland, whose dad Dean is a former Husky lineman, from Portland spoke to Scott Eklund about his time in Seattle over the weekend. He says he got to know the coaches a little more and really clicked with them. Though he does not yet have an offer from the Huskies, they are very interested in him and want him to take the SAT first before extending an offer.
- 3-star OL Alex Forsyth from West Linn, Oregon also enjoyed his time at Washington. Forsyth was particularly impressed with Chris Petersen, who gave a presentation on the Built For Life program and how the coaches prepare their players for life after football. Forsyth joined a long list of players who have been blown away by UW's facilities.
- Washington's 2018 QB commit Jacob Sirmon may still be a sophomore, but he already has impressive size:

He's still solidly committed and is even honing his skills as a recruiter
- Jacob was accompanied at Junior Day by his cousin Jack Sirmon, who is a linebacker prospect out of Loyola High in LA:
