Today the Huskies added another massive piece to their wide receiver corps when 4 star wideout Rome Odunze from Bishop Gorman HS, NV committed to UW. Listed at 6’2” and around 200 pounds Odunze is a physical wide receiver that also has elite speed (he ran a 10.67 100 as a junior). 247sports has Odunze rated as the 174th best prospect and 30th best wideout in the nation.
UW was able to land the commitment of Odunze over several national powers including Oklahoma, Alabama, Penn State, and Texas (as well as basically all of the PAC 12). Landing Odunze is another example of how far the Huskies have come in recruiting and that they are capable of beating anyone for a prospect if they really want them. Odunze was Adams’ first offer after taking over as Washington’s receivers coach. Last year for Bishop Gorman Odunze tacked up 60 catches for a little over 1,300 yards and 15 touchdowns.
When you watch the film of Odunze you can see a really great athlete who is still learning how to be an elite receiver, but he has the skill set to potentially develop into an all-conference player. With Odunze’s commitment the Huskies have arguably one of the best wideout classes in the country (the Huskies have previously landed 4 star Jalen McMillan, and 3 star Sawyer Racanelli). All three players are over 6’2” and they continue the trend of trying to get bigger at the wide receiver position. Here is a look at his highlights:
Odunze is the 16th commit in the class and he is probably the last wide receiver commit in the 2020 class.
