The Huskies continue to roll on the recruiting front with the commitment of three-star defensive back Makell Esteen from Lawndale HS, CA. Esteen, who is listed at 6’1” and around 170 pounds, is an aggressive defensive back with a nose for finding the football. 247sports rates him as the 33rd best safety and 403rd best player in the country. UW beat out the likes of Oregon, USC, and basically the entire Pac-12 for his services. Esteen is a big pickup and is the third defensive back in the 2020 class.
UW now has 18 verbal commitments in the 2020 class.
