- The QB situation is expected to be sorted out in the next month or so. The main targets Washington is focusing on are 3-star signal callers Chase Garbers and Jack Sears. Garbers has already visited Montlake and is expected to take another trip up to UW next week. Chase says he is in daily contact with UW's staff and most people think the Huskies are in a great spot with him. He's planning on making a July decision. Of the two quarterbacks, Garbers appears to be the Huskies' best bet. He has been taking part in the Elite 11 this weekend and has been holding his own against some of the top QB prospects in the country.
Elite 11 rankings by the SS staff after two days, we would have Chase Garbers in that mix as well https://t.co/yuvQrNABy4— Greg Biggins (@GregBiggins) June 5, 2016
- Jack Sears is the other QB that the Huskies have set their sights on. He recently took a visit up to Seattle and says he really enjoyed getting sit down and talk with Chris Petersen and Jonathan Smith. Most recruiting writers feel that UCLA has the inside track with Sears, but he's visited UW multiple times and has a good relationship with the coaching staff. Like Garbers, Sears is planning on making a commitment in July.
- Chris Fetters caught up with Juanita star ATH Salvon Ahmed, who talked about his summer camp plans and his timeline for cutting his list of schools down to a final five. He says his relationship with the Washington staff continues to get stronger and he likes the direction of the program. Salvon says he is planning on making a commitment at some point during the football season.
- The Battle In Seattle 7-on-7 tournament took place over Memorial Day weekend and a number of 2016 and 2017 Washington commits competed in the event.
- Since the hiring of Ikaika Malloe from Utah State, the Huskies have been expanding their recruiting footprint in Utah this spring. 4-star ATH Tayler Katoa out of Layton, Utah recently received an offer from the Huskies. He took a visit to UW while in Seattle for The Opening regional and says he really liked getting to know linebackers coach Bob Gregory. Tayler followed Chris Petersen while the two-time Bear Bryant award winner was at Boise State and he's excited to see what Petersen is able to do with Pac-12 resources at Washington. Katoa says the Huskies now sit near the top of his list of schools.
- Another Utah prospect the Huskies are eyeing is 3-star DE Alden Tofa. Washington has yet to extend an offer, but they have been showing increasing interest in Tofa over the course of the spring evaluation period. The interest is mutual as Alden says he could definitely see himself being a part of the Death Row defense. He says he would like to make a commitment by the end of his senior season.
- Scout to a look at which schools are hot and which schools are not so far in the 2017 recruiting cycle. Unsurprisingly the Huskies, who have the #1 recruiting class in the conference, are one of the hottest teams in the country right now. As a cherry on top, our feathered foes to the south are treading water and are listed among the teams struggling to build momentum.
- Washington extended an offer this week to 3-star California OL Drew Dalman. At 6'3" and 255 pounds, the Huskies are recruiting him as an interior lineman. OL coach Chris Strausser has been in contact with Dalman for a couple of years now, but things just started to heat up in the last two weeks. Dalman is hoping to take a visit to Montlake later in the summer.
- Salt Lake City DE Jordan Lolohea has seen his recruitment skyrocket over the spring evaluation period and the currently unrated prospect now holds offers from half of the Pac-12 and a handful of Mountain West teams. Washington is recruiting Lolohea (6'2", 240 lbs.) as a middle linebacker. He is hoping to visit UW at some point this summer and says he'll take his time in making a commitment. Lolohea is LDS and is planning on taking his mission right after he graduates, so the earliest he'd be able to enroll in college would be 2019.
- Rivals projects where some of the West's top 2017 prospects will commit. A number of Washington targets are among those listed.
- 3-star Santa Margarita center Brett Neilon is down to a top 3 of Washington, Michigan, and USC. He has already visited all 3 schools and says he's now taking his time evaluating what each program has to offer. It sounds like he could be close to making a decision.
Heading into the summer, here is what the Huskies' recruiting class looks like so far:
