The multi-sport star from Gonzaga Prep will follow in the footsteps of other UW stars Joshua Perkins, Darrell Daniels and Hunter Bryant as a hybrid receiver and tight-end specialist.
The former Oregon Duck commit followed in the footsteps of QB Colson Yankoff in decommitting following the firing of former Oregon head coach Mark Helfrich and the move of Matt Lubick to UW. He committed to Washington on April 8th and has been a solid UW commit ever since.
As a receiver, Culp has the kind of length and catch radius that makes him an attractive asset in Chris Petersen’s offense. Gonzaga Prep is a school that runs a rush-first, rush-often kind of offense. In it, Culp demonstrated himself to be a well-rounded player who not only could catch the ball but also has the ability to run with the ball and to block in the rushing game.
The talented TE helped Gonzaga Prep reach the Washington State 4A quarterfinals and was named first-team in the Seattle Times All-State list for 2017.
Culp held offers from Oregon, Utah, Cal, Oregon State and WSU before committing to UW and his primary recruiter, Jordan Paopao.
Tight end is one of the more complicated positions in Chris Petersen’s program. Look for Culp to take a redshirt season as he learns the nuances of how to be a successful receiver and sharpens up his blocking skills.
