As we head into summer and the Huskies having 9 commits currently I thought it would be a good time to predict the rest of the class. So here goes (based on what I know now):
QB- Jacob Sirmon, and Colson Yankoff both are 4 star QB’s who will remain committed to UW.
RB- Chris Brown a 4 star running back out of El Camino HS, CA appears to the be the best bet at running back now. Richard Newton a 3 star out of Palmdale HS, CA was thought to be the guy but he may be waiting too long for the staff.
WR- Marquis Spiker, Austin Osborne, and Trey Lowe are a powerful 3 man wideout class who are all 4 star commits to the Huskies.
TE- Devin Culp a 4 star and current Husky commit out of Gonzaga Prep HS, WA will be the only TE that is brought in.
OL- Matteo Mele just committed and I have a hunch the Huskies will land Will Craig a 4 star lineman out of Granite Bay HS, CA to go along with MJ Ale a 3 star offensive lineman out of Fife HS, WA. The other possibilities are Brandon Mello a 3 star out of Clayton HS, CA and Steven Jones a 4 star out of Chaparral HS, CA.
DT- Probably the most important position in this class and I think the Huskies will land Sam Taimani a 4 star lineman out of East HS, UT and Tommy Togiagi out of Highland HS, ID both are 4 star prospects who the Huskies desperately need.
DE- We already have Draco Bynum a 3 star DE out of Wilsonville HS, OR and I think Zion Tupuola- Fetui a 3 star DE out of Pearl City HS looks to be the other defensive end/Buck to commit at DE. They will probably take 1 true DE and 1 buck in this class and I think Bama will end up landing Cameron Latu a 4 star DE out of Olympus HS, UT.
LB- Jackson Sirmon a 3 star out of Brentwood Academy, TN is already committed and I think the Huskies could also land Nick Bolton a 3 star outside linebacker out of Lone Star HS, TX. I also think the Huskies will snag one of Solomon Tuliaupupu out Mater Dei HS, CA or Kana’i Mauga a 4 star linebacker and current USC Commit out of Waianae HS, HI. They will probably take 3 including Sirmon. (Edit: I do think the Huskies will also snag Josiah Bradley from Saguaro HS, AZ. He is a 4 star safety now but projects as a LB for Husky coaches).
CB- It’s looking more and more like Kyler Gordon a 4 star out of Archbishop Murphy HS, WA and Dominique Hampton a 3 star out of Centennial HS, AZ will commit to the Huskies. The Huskies will take 2 corners in this class.
S- I think Julius Irvin a 4 star safety out of Servite HS, CA will most likely commit to UW. I do think they will take 2 this class depending on if Keith Taylor switches to safety this season. The other name to consider is Bryan Addison a 4 star safety out of Gardena Serra HS, CA.
Happy 4th of July Husky fans and let me know what you think about the projected class.
