This last week has been pretty busy on the recruiting trail with the Huskies picking up commitments from 4-star receiver Jalen McMillan from San Joaquin Memorial HS, CA and landing a punter, Triston Brown from Mt. San Antonio Community College. Both players are big pickups for the Huskies and both should see the field for the Dawgs in 2020.
This next week also looks to be a busy week on the recruiting trail with a few commitments potentially coming. Here are some players to keep an eye on in the coming weeks:
Three-star tight end Mason West from La Habra HS, CA was offered by UW. Listed at 6’4” and around 240 pounds, West is listed by 247sports as having offers from Boise State, Oregon State, and now UW. West’s film shows that he is an excellent blocker who can catch the football. He reminds me of Drew Sample when I watch his film. The Huskies ask their tight ends to block quite a bit and West’s game really fits in with that. It sounds like the Huskies will try to add at least two tight ends in the 2020 class (there has been some thought they might take a third if he is the right guy). When West was offered by UW, he mentioned it was a dream offer, and several reporting sites believe he could commit soon. Here is some of West’s film:
Four-star offensive lineman Geirean Hatchett from Ferndale HS, WA is also thought to be a big-time Husky lean who might commit to the Huskies sooner rather than later. With offers from around the country and a top five of Oklahoma, Stanford, Notre Dame, Ohio State, and UW, the Huskies have been his leader for a while. Hatchett recently attended the Dirt Dawgs camp, where he hung out with current Husky offensive line commits Roger Rosengarten and Gaard Memmelaar. If the Huskies can land Hatchett it sounds like their offensive line class may be about done (unless they can land a player like Myles Murao). Here is some of Hatchett’s film:
Four-star running back Sam Adams from Eastside Catholic HS, WA has also been heavily favoring UW recently. He just completed official visits to UW, Florida, and Ohio State, and it sounds like he is done with official visits. The Huskies are looking good for Adams, who is participating at the Opening the next few days. The Huskies want to add a second running back to the 2020 class and Adams will fit in perfectly with current Husky commit Jay’Veon Sunday (who is more of a Lavon Coleman type of runner). I would expect some news from Adams in the next couple of weeks and it’s likely to be positive for Husky fans. Here is some of Adams’s film:
During the month of July it sounds like it may be fairly quiet on the recruiting trail, with most of the Husky coaches taking some time with their families for vacation before they head into fall practices. The coaches may have some official visitors up the last weekend of July and I have heard guys like 4-star wideout Rome Odunze from Bishop Gorman HS, NV may be in town. That is all for now, and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
