This weekend was a good weekend for the Huskies both at Husky Stadium and also on some high school fields across the west coast. Several Husky commits shined on the field and here is a look at some of the standouts:
3 star quarterback commit Ethan Garbers had another strong game in a win against St Francis HS, CA. After a record breaking weekend last weekend the Husky commit threw for another 345 yards and 5 touchdowns. 2 of those touchdowns went to his teammate and current Husky TE commit Mark Redman. Garbers now has 13 touchdowns this season through 2 games and Redman has 3 touchdown catches.
Also having a great game was 4 star wide receiver commit Rome Odunze from Bishop Gorman HS, NV. Although his team was not able to beat St Louis HS out of Hawaii, Odunze had 6 catches for 106 yards and 2 touchdowns. Watching one of his touchdown catches in the game showed the freak athleticism that he has for such a large frame.
Some of the commits haven’t started their season yet (mainly the Washington schools).
There are 2 other big pieces of recruiting nuggets that I can share. The first is that 5 star defensive end Sav’ell Smalls from Kennedy Catholic HS, WA was in attendance with current Husky quarterback commit Sam Huard (who is also from Kennedy Catholic and a 2021 commit). The fact that Smalls made it to Husky Stadium after including him in his top 6 list is big for the Huskies. The Huskies have made up a ton of ground and the more that Smalls can make it on campus the better chance the Huskies have of landing his commitment.
Lastly, 4 star wideout Gary Bryant from Centennial HS, CA set his official visit to UW for the USC game. It sounds like the Huskies will have a big recruiting weekend for the USC game with 4 star linebacker Jordan Banks from Narbonne HS, CA also in attendance. The Huskies would love to add Banks and Bryant (it sounds like he is the only additional wideout we are pursuing currently with 3 already committed). After the transfer of Haener this last week it also sounds like the number for the 2020 class may now be 23 or 24. The Huskies have 19 commitments so there are only 4-5 spots left in the class.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
