Recruiting Roundup: Huskies Hosting a 3* 2020 QB and Other News

Top 2020 QB on Campus

NCAA Football: Rose Bowl Game-Ohio State vs Washington Gary A. Vasquez-USA TODAY Sports

A couple of weeks after the 2019 class wrapped up, Husky coaches are busy working on the 2020 class. This weekend the Huskies are hosting, unofficially, 3-star QB Ethan Garbers from Corona Del Mar HS, CA. Garbers recently received a Husky offer and is very interested in UW (his brother Chase, who plays at Cal, almost committed to UW). Listed at 6’2” and around 200 pounds, Garbers has offers from UCLA, Miami, Colorado, and WSU. 247sports has Garbers rated as the 38th best Pro-style QB in the class. With 5-star QB Sam Huard already in the fold for 2021, some top QBs have looked at other schools, so landing a QB like Garbers would be a great pickup for the Huskies. It also doesn’t hurt that Garbers is a teammate of 4-star wideout John Humphreys and 3-star tight end Mark Redman. Both players are top Husky targets and have Husky offers. Here are some of Garbers’s highlights from last year:

Top 2020 wideout Jalen McMillan, out of San Joaquin Memorial HS, CA, recently narrowed his list of schools down to a top ten which included the Huskies. McMillan, rated by 247sports as a 4-star player and top-20 wideout, is listed at 6’2” and around 180 pounds. New wideout coach Junior Adams has already been building a good relationship with McMillan and the Huskies are doing very well with him.

Here are some highlights from his junior season:

So far, for the 2020 class, the Huskies have offered 48 players. (For comparison’s sake, they offered roughly 95 players in the 2019 class.) Teams like Oregon have already extended around 224 offers for the 2020 class. Over the last several years the Huskies have extended less offers than most other teams, and that trend will continue this year. It sounds like the Huskies will probably bring in 20-23 players for the 2020 class. Right now they currently have one commit in 3-star offensive lineman Gaard Memmelaar from Middleton HS, ID. As spring rolls around and some of the top Husky targets make their way back onto campus, I would expect that UW will start getting commitments from some of their targeted players.

That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
