Recruiting Roundup

NCAA Football: Washington Spring Game Jennifer Buchanan-USA TODAY Sports

Next weekend the Huskies will be hosting several big-time prospects on official visits. These players are all looking to make their decisions sometime this summer, which is why the Huskies are hosting them now rather than in the fall/winter (which is what they prefer). Here is a look at the prospects that will be in town:

Four-star running back Sam Adams II from Eastside Catholic HS, WA is the primary running back the Huskies are recruiting after landing a commitment from Jay’Veon Sunday earlier this week. Adams, who is rated as the 104th best player in the nation by 247sports, is a big-time back who can score anytime he touches the ball. Listed at 6’2” and around 200 pounds, Adams holds offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Florida, Penn State, and Texas A&M. UW is currently the leader for Adams but he is scheduled to officially visit Ohio State later in the month. Here is a look at his highlights:

Four-star defensive back Jacobe Covington from Saguaro HS, AZ is a big-time player who was recently offered by UW. Listed at 6’1” and around 193 pounds, Covington is rated as the 230th best player in the nation by 247sports. Covington has offers from the likes of Oklahoma, Oregon, LSU, Penn State, and USC. The Huskies have made up a ton of ground (Oklahoma has been listed as his leader for a while) for Covington and it wouldn’t surprise me if the Huskies were able to land his commitment. Here is a look at some of his highlights:

Four-star offensive tackle Roger Rosengarten from Valor Christian HS, CO recently narrowed his list down to Oregon and UW. Rated as the 101st best player in the nation (by 247sports), at 6’7” and around 275 pounds, Rosengarten is one of the Huskies’ primary targets at offensive tackle. The Huskies are looking at bringing in one more offensive tackle in the 2020 class. Rosengarten just visited Oregon this weekend, but I believe UW can land him once they show him the OKG presentation and allow him to hang out with the rest of the team (most sites list him as an Oregon lean, which is the team that he grew up rooting for). Here is a look at some of his highlights:

Three-star tight end Ben Yurosek from Bakersfield Christian HS, CA will be in town as well. Yurosek, who grew up in Bellevue before moving to California, is rated as the 413th best player in the nation (by 247sports). The Huskies have been after Yurosek for a while but they are battling UCLA and Stanford for his services. Listed at 6’5” and around 220 pounds, Yurosek is so versatile in his skill set that some schools see him playing defensive end. The Huskies will take two tight ends in the 2020 class and Yurosek is a player they like a lot. Here is a look at his highlights:

Three-star defensive end Jake Shipley from Shadow Hills HS, CA will also be in town. Shipley holds offers from UCLA, Oregon, ASU, and Cal. The Huskies will take a defensive end in this class and they really like Shipley and his skill set. Listed at 6’4” and around 250 pounds, Shipley is rated as the 753rd best player in the nation by 247sports. It sounds like Shipley will also be visiting ASU in the coming weeks. Here is a look at his highlights:

Three-star tight end Kole Taylor from Central HS, CO who has already visited Missouri, and has visits scheduled to LSU and Penn State, will be in town as well. Listed at 6’6” and around 225 pounds, Taylor is a big-time receiving threat at tight end who would be a great complement to Mark Redman (current Husky tight end commit). Taylor is rated as the 510th best player and the 13th best tight end in the country. The Huskies will take the first tight end who wants to commit between Taylor and Yurosek. Here is a look at some of highlights:

Three-star linebacker Cooper McDonald from Northwest HS, TX has offers from the likes of Utah, Colorado, and San Diego State. Listed at 6’3” and around 220 pounds, the Huskies are recruiting McDonald at OLB/Buck. McDonald also has a visit scheduled to Colorado late in June and will probably make a decision between the two schools. McDonald isn’t the highest-rated player, but his film shows that he is better than his rating (rated as the 1053rd best player by 247sports). Here is a look at his highlights:

The Huskies currently have five commitments and it sounds like they will take around 20-22 players in the class. That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
