One of this year’s most sought-after wide receiver prospects made good on his nine-month commitment to the Washington Huskies today, and is officially on his way to calling Montlake home next fall.
Marquis Spiker hails from Murrieta, Calif., and is rated the No. 8 wide receiver prospect in the 2018 class. By the reckoning of 247 Sports, Spiker ranks as the 12th-best player to sign with the Huskies in the modern recruiting era, trailing only Budda Baker among Washington recruits during the Chris Petersen era. Spiker chose the Huskies over offers from USC, UCLA, Oregon and Washington State, among others. In describing Spiker’s game, Greg Biggins said this:
At 6-3, 180 pounds, Spiker has size, hands, body control, runs well after the catch and is tremendous in jump ball situations. He has the talent to play right away in college and has the size and skill set to play for as long as he wants.
Conditions seem ripe for Spiker to earn early playing time as a true freshman in 2018, and Husky fans should prepare for that by familiarizing themselves with his game. To that end, check out the highlights of Spiker’s junior season below.
