As we head into spring visits with Husky targets, it’s time to look at an updated offensive recruiting board to see who the Huskies are after. Several of the top targets will be heading up to UW this spring. Here is a look at some key Husky targets:
At quarterback the Huskies have a commitment from 3-star Ethan Garbers from Corona Del Mar HS, CA. Garbers, who is listed at 6’2” and around 190 pounds, committed to UW over offers from Georgia, UCLA, Miami, and WSU. Garbers threw for over 4,100 yards last year and 55 touchdowns. With Garbers the Huskies have their 2020 QB. Here are some of Garbers’s highlights:
At running back the Huskies are looking at bringing in two running backs in the 2020 class. The Huskies have offered seven so far. They are doing best with 4-star running back Sam Adams from Eastside Catholic HS, WA, 3-star Jayveon Sunday from Connally HS, TX, and 3-star Sevion Morrison from Edison HS, OK. At 6’2” and 200 pounds, Adams is a physical back that also has breakaway speed. He has landed offers from Alabama, USC, Ohio State, Texas A&M, and LSU—heavy competition. The Huskies are also after 5-star running back Zachary Evans from North Shore HS, TX and Bijan Robinson from Salpointe HS, AZ, who are both looking like long shots for the Huskies. If I were to guess at the running backs right now I would say that the Huskies will land Adams and Sunday (Sunday has already visited unofficially and plans to visit in the spring again). Here are some of Adams’s highlights:
At tight end the Huskies would like to bring in two tight ends and they have their sights set on 3-star Mark Redman from Corona Del Mar HS, CA, teammate and best friend of current Husky commit Ethan Garbers. Both players are scheduled to visit UW unofficially at the beginning of April. Redman, listed at 6’6”and 250 pounds, has picked up offers from Alabama, Ohio State, USC, and Michigan. The Huskies are looking good for Redman right now. Three-star tight end Ben Yurosek from Bakersfield Christian HS, CA has also been offered and is looking at UW. Here are some of Redman’s highlights:
At the wide receiver position the Huskies will look to bring in two recruits. They are after two of the best wideouts in the nation in 5-star Johnny Wilson from Calabasas HS, CA and 4-star Jalen McMillan from San Joaquin HS, CA. Both players recently named UW in their top lists and are looking very hard at UW; both are also playing for team Ford Sports Performance, which a local sports performance center. Wilson, who is listed at 6’6” and 220 pounds, possesses the size the Huskies have been trying for the past few years to add at the wide receiver position. He recently named a top five of UCLA, Ohio State, Oregon, Texas, and UW. McMillan, listed at 6’2 and around 180 pounds, is looking heavily at Oklahoma, Notre Dame, USC, and UW. Playing for team FSP, and catching balls from 5-star 2021 QB Husky commit Sam Huard, has helped UW’s chances in landing McMillan. 4-star wideout Gary Bryant from Centennial HS, CA is another player the Huskies are recruiting very hard. Listed at 5’10” and around 160 pounds, Bryant doesn’t have the biggest frame but he definitely makes up for it with his speed. He recently ran a 4.46 40, and is being heavily pursued by UW, USC, Oregon, and Michigan. He is planning on visiting UW in April. Here are some of McMillan’s highlights:
Along the offensive line the Huskies have one committed player already with 3-star offensive tackle Gaard Memmelaar from Middleton HS, ID. The Huskies are hoping to land a few more offensive lineman, and two they would love to land are 4-star guards Geirean Hatchett from Ferndale HS, WA and Myles Murao from Mater Dei HS, CA. Both players are highly coveted and have offers from the likes of USC, Alabama, UCLA, and Oregon. Hatchett is expected to make his commitment prior to his senior season and Murao might wait until he can officially visit some schools during his senior season. At the other tackle spot the Huskies are looking at several guys and the spring visits will go a long way in determining which players are most interested in UW. They recently offered 4-star Roger Rosengarten from Valor Christian HS, CO, who will try to make it up to UW this spring. Three-star tackle Jeffrey Persi from J Serra Catholic HS, CA is also scheduled to visit UW this spring to check out the campus and a Huskies practice. If I were to predict right now I think Hatchett will choose UW and Murao is 50-50 between USC and UW (with USC’s success this season going a long way in determining which school he chooses). Here are some of Murao and Hatchett’s highlights:
Next weekend I will look at the defensive side of the ball. That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
