Roger Rosengarten, the offensive lineman out of Valor Christian in Colorado, has made it official.
Rosengarten was rated a .94 on the 247Sports composite and was either the best or second best prospect from Colorado, depending on which scouting site you asked. Prior to committing, his recruitment was largely known to be down to either Oregon or Washington, with the Ducks as major favorites until his UW visit shortly after. Otherwise, he also held offers from Cal, ASU, Miami, Michigan, Nebraska, Notre Dame, Ohio State, Oklahoma, Penn State, USC, and Utah.
Until Samuel Peacock from Gig Harbor committed a few weeks ago, Rosengarten was likely the only true tackle in an outstanding offensive linemen class for the Dawgs — UW’s first commit of the class, Gaard Memmelaar, projects as a guard as does Ferndale product Geirean Hatchett, while Mater Dei’s Myles Murao is a massive get for the Huskies at center. At 6’7”, 275 lbs, Rosengarten will obviously add 25+ pounds but has the rare combination of frame and quick athleticism to be an ideal tackle in college. Plus, he’s just mean.
With Trey Adams and Jared Hilbers both graduating there are a pair of open spots at tackle on the Husky roster. It’s not common that a true freshman steps in immediately to take one of those jobs and Rosengarten likely needs to add some muscle to his frame during a redshirt year before he’s ready to live up to his immense potential.

Do good things, don’t do bad things, and bow down to Washington.
