Bralen Trice joins the Husky Football program from Sandra Day O’Connor High School in Glendale Arizona, where he was named the Region Defensive POY. Despite being one of the lower rated prospects in this class, the pass rushing DE had offers from USC, TCU, and Alabama, in addition to his finalists Oregon and Notre Dame.
He chose the Huskies over strong interest from Notre Dame but, one week after his official visit on September 29th, he gave his verbal to UW. Washington was actually his first offer, which shows just how highly the coaches think of him.
As a prospect, Trice shows really nice speed off the edge and the ability to get enough “bend” in his waist to go under and around offensive tackles. The Huskies need all the help they can get on the edges right now, and any player who can get to the QB will see the field. However, he is probably destined for a redshirt year.
Below are his junior year highlights. Welcome to Montlake, Bralen!
