Husky coaches have been trying to wrap up their remaining 2020 targets prior to the late signing period (Wednesday Feb 5th). They have already signed 22 players for the class and it looks like Jimmy Lake wants to add a few more guys to the class. This weekend the coaches hosted 10 players, 2 of which are uncommitted players who they have offered (6 of them are Preferred Walk On Candidates). Here is a look at who was in town:
4 star quarterback Ethan Garbers and 4 star tight end Mark Redman who both have signed with UW already finally were able to take their official visits (their playoff schedule didn’t allow them to visit in December). Garbers put up over 5,000 yards with 71 touchdowns this season, and he plans to enroll in March so that he can participate in spring ball. Redman also put up some impressive stats with 979 yards receiving and 13 receiving touchdowns. Both players figure to get a crack at playing time next year (Garbers will compete for the starting QB job starting in spring).
3 star defensive end Tanoa Togiai from Rigby HS, ID was in town to visit the Huskies after getting a Husky offer a few weeks ago. Listed at around 6’6” and 295 pounds Togiai is a versatile defensive line prospect that could end up as an end or 3 technique player. 247sports has him rated as the 48th best strong side defensive end and the Huskies really like his size and versatility and it sounds like Togiai may decide to take a mission and delay his enrollment to the school he signs with. With offers from Nebraska, Utah, UCLA, Virginia, and Colorado the Huskies have some competition for his commitment. The fact that they were able to get him on campus should be seen as a good sign in his recruitment. If they can add Togiai to the 2020 class they will have a defensive lineman in the class (after last years haul the Huskies didn’t need a lot of bodies on the line but they should take one each year). Here is a look at his highlights:
3 star tight end Nick Sani from Central Catholic HS, CA just received a Husky offer last week and coaches brought him up on campus this weekend. New tight end coach Derham Cato watched Sani do a workout last week and offered him after seeing him live. Sani is a little under the radar right now, but he is listed at 6’6” and around 240 pounds. The Huskies want to add a 3rd tight end in the 2020 class and Sani looks to be a backup option in the event that the Huskies miss on bringing in 4 star Jack Yary (who visited in December). Sani looks like a player who may need a year in the system to get bigger, faster, and Stronger but he has the size for the position and will be player the Huskies can develop. Here is a look at his highlights:
Recently the Huskies have been able to land some quality walk on players (including linebacker Eddie O, and tight end Jack Westover who both played a lot this last year) and they are looking at bringing in some talented players in the 2020 class. Here is a look at the PWO players the Huskies will try and add:
3 star safety Meki Pei from Iolani HS, HI who was the MVP of the Poly Bowl this last weekend.
3 star offensive lineman Logan Bruce from Lake Stevens HS, WA.
3 star cornerback Kasen Kinchen from Lake Stevens HS, WA.
3 star cornerback Lamar Campbell from Sumner HS, WA.
3 star running back Christian Galvin from Bothell HS, WA.
2 star defensive lineman Josiah Nikolao from Bellarmine Prep HS, WA.
Kinchen and Campbell both had Oregon offers (who doesn’t now), and both could be scholarship players after a few years. Peni also looks like a good player who may be able to work his way into a scholarship after a few years. Most of the PWO players will probably make their decisions close to signing day.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
