Happy Sunday Husky fans. We are less than 1 week away from the Dawgs hitting the field and suiting up for a revenge game against the Golden Bears. This week I decided to take a look at who I view as the most important Husky Targets in 2022 are (I am only looking the most realistic targets are as well).
At the top of the list I am going to list 4 star offensive tackle Josh Conerly from Rainier Beach HS, WA. Listed at 6’5” and around 270 pounds Conerly is a future star on the offensive line (assuming he stays healthy). The Huskies hare battling Oregon primarily for Conerly, who is rated as the 56th best player and 6th best tackle in the country (but also Alabama who is heavily recruiting Conerly). The Huskies need to continue to land top line offensive lineman and if they could get Conerly they could pair his talents with players like Roger Rosengarten (who signed in the 2020 class). I do think the Huskies will land Conerly, and I view him as the single most important recruit in the 2022 class (Landing him will also send a national signal that the Huskies have the recruiting power to beat national programs and keep kids home).
4 star wide receiver Tobias Merriweather is a key Husky Target on the offensive side of the ball. Listed at 6’4” and around 185 pounds Merriweather has elite speed and size for the wide receiver position. The Huskies are in a dogfight with Oregon right now in landing a commitment from Merriweather (who is slightly favoring Oregon currently). 247sports has Merriweather rated as the 9th best wide receiver, if the Huskies can land Merriweather they will deal a huge blow to their arch rivals and also add another explosive weapon for the offense (and Sam Huard assuming he is the starter in 2021 and beyond).
4 star cornerback Fabian Ross from Bishop Gorman HS, NV is a big-time cornerback that the Huskies are after. Listed at 6’0” and around 185 pounds the Huskies are battling USC, Notre Dame and Oregon for his commitment. Ross is rated as the 17th best cornerback in the country by 247sports and I have him listed so high for 2 reasons: 1) it would help the Huskies continue a pipeline into Bishop Gorman and 2) the Huskies will probably lose Trent Mcduffie after the 2021 season and they will need more guys on the outside to help fill the void.
4 star safety Trejon Williams from Jefferson HS, OR is a big-time defensive talent in the 2022 class. Listed at 6’0” and around 195 pounds Williams is rated as the 9th best safety in the 2022 class. The Huskies could send a signal to the team down south if they can land Williams (who can’t recruit Williams due to the Ducks hiring his coach this last year to their staff and the rules stating they can’t recruit the school for 2 years). The Huskies will need some safeties in the 2022 class (as I assume Asa Turner or Cam Williams could be thinking about leaving early after the 2021 season).
A couple of other big targets that I thought about listing were: 5 star wide receiver CJ Williams from Mater Dei HS, CA (he is leaning to Ohio State now), 4 star inside linebacker Dishawn Misa from Eastside Catholic HS, WA (I do think the Huskies will land him), and 4 star offensive tackle Malik Agbo from Todd Beamer HS, WA (who the Huskies are battling Oregon for).
Do you agree with me or disagree with me? Let me know who you think are the biggest recruits in the 2022 class.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
