The playoff season for High schools football is still in full swing and several Husky commits are leading their teams. 4 star composite quarterback commit Ethan Garbers from Corona Del Mar HS, CA has been tearing it up all year for his team and this last week he threw for 281 yards for 4 touchdowns and ran for 105 yards and 3 touchdowns in his teams playoff win over Grace Bretheran. For the season he has thrown for 4,600 yards and 66 touchdowns against 5 interceptions. Garbers has really elevated his game this year as both a quarterback and leader. He will graduate early and enroll at UW in time to take part in spring practice. If Jacob Eason decides to leave early Garbers will be in a good position to compete with Dylan Morris and Jacob Sirmon for the starting QB job.
3 star tight end and teammate of Garbers, Mark Redman has also been playing well this year putting up 856 yards and 13 touchdowns. When you watch him play the 6’6” tight end looks like a future star at tight end for the Huskies. With the Huskies more than likely losing Hunter Bryant after this year Redman will have a chance to compete for playing time.
4 star running back commit Sam Adams II From Eastside Catholic HS, WA helped lead his team to a playoff win over Lincoln HS. Adams, who has been playing both running back and safety but has been playing more and more running back as the season goes along. The Husky commit had a big rushing score in the game and his team will take on O’Dea for the 3A championship. Adams will figure heavily in the RB competition next year, especially if Salvon Ahmed leaves early.

In other news the Huskies has a few notable visitors for the apple cup (note: this isn’t an exhaustive list):
3 star and recently offered 2021 wideout Junior Alexander from Kennedy Catholic HS, WA was on campus to check out the game. Alexander has good size, listed at 6’2” and around 170 pounds for the position and the toughness the Husky wideout crew have been missing the last several years. I would not be shocked if he added his name to the 2021 commit list soon.
Also on campus was 2021 3 star linebacker, and current BYU commit, Logan Fano from Timpview HS, UT. Fano, who is cousins with Puka Nacua is listed at 6’4” and around 220 pounds with offers from Nebraska, Michigan, UW, Utah and of course BYU. The Huskies will be in the market for a few linebackers in the 2021 class and Fano has great size for the position.
What a trip!! Big thank you to the University of Washington for their hospitality! Seattle I’ll be back soon ☔️ pic.twitter.com/8txRWrxWkG— Logan Fano (@LoganFano) December 1, 2019
2017 signee Jordan Lolohea from East HS, UT was also on campus for his official visit. After serving his 2 year mission Lolohea will enroll in January and compete on the defensive line where he could play a variety of positions. In 2017 he was listed at 6’3” and 240 pounds but it sounds like he may actually be closer to 260 pounds right now. The Huskies will need more bodies on the line after Benning P graduates and Levi O possibly flirts with early entry to the draft.
The coaches will hit the road recruiting this week to try and close out their 2020 class (early signing period is in 2 weeks). If any new offers or visitors pop up I will make sure and report it. With a couple of spots left it looks like the Huskies are looking for a defensive back, tight end, and defensive lineman to close out the class.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
