  • 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.
  • 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.
  • 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:
  • 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:

  • 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:

  • Talented 2019 Graham-Kapowsin QB Dylan Morris also attended Junior Day:

  • 3-star ATH Jordan Genmark-Heath enjoyed his time in Seattle:
