Happy Sunday Husky fans. I’ve been looking at each recruiting position but this morning I wanted to look at who could woof next. Here is my breakdown of guys who I believe will be on elf watch:
4 star tight end Ryan Otton from Tumwater HS, WA is one of the best tight ends in the country and he has Husky football in his blood. Listed at 6’6” and around 225 pounds Otton holds offers from Stanford, UCLA, Oregon and Cal. 247sports has him rated as the 4th best tight end in the country. Even though he has a several option to choose from in my opinion it’s only a matter of time before Otton commits to UW and adds his name to the 2022 commit list. Otton is a prototypical bigger tight end that can make catches down the field as well.
3 star offensive lineman back Vega Ioane from Graham-Kapowsin HS, WA is one of the best offensive lineman in the state (for the 2022 class). Listed at 6’4” and around 280 pounds Ioane is rated as the 14th best guard in the 2022 class (per 247sports). USC, UCLA, Cal, and WSU have offered him. The Huskies have and continue to be the favorite for Ioane who should commit sooner rather than later (probably late this winter or early next year). The Huskies would love to add Ioane to their 2022 class.
4 star offensive lineman Josh Conerly from Rainier Beach HS, WA is another big-time offensive lineman in the state of Washington (in the 2022 class). Listed at 6’5” and around 270 pounds Conerly is a future NFL left tackle (assuming he develops and stays healthy). 247sports has him rated as the 5th best tackle in the country and UW is battling some heavyweights for his commitment. Alabama, Oregon, USC, and LSU have all offered him but I get the sense that when he makes his decision the Huskies will be able to pull ahead courtesy of Scott Huff. The Huskies would love to add at least 4 of the in state lineman (in the 2022 class).
3 star offensive guard Mark Nabou from O’Dea HS, WA is an offensive lineman that is flying under the radar. Listed at 6’4” and around 311 pounds Nabou is an offensive guard with good size for the position. Rated by 247sports as the 16th best guard in the country the Huskies are battling ASU and Oregon State for his commitment but in all reality if UW has space they should be able to reel in Nabou (which is why he’s on this list). If he wants to commit to UW he will need to make his decision soon, which I think he will.
I also wouldn’t be surprised if 4 star offensive lineman Dave Iuli from Puyallup HS, WA ends up at UW, but I think it may be next spring before he makes his decision (he’s coming off an injury last year). Another player that may be on watch at some point is 3 star running back Djouvensky Schlenbaker from Squalicum HS, WA (although he’s probably going to check out a few schools before he commits).
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
