Jimmy Lake and his Husky staff have been active on the recruiting trail for 2021. In the last couple of weeks they have extended several offers out, and here is a look at some of those offers:
4 star wide receiver Jabez Tinae from Kennedy Catholic HS, WA was just offered by UW. Listed at around 6’1” and 185 pounds Tinae is rated as the 166th best player and 32nd best wideout in the country. Currently Tinae has offers from most of the Pac 12 including Oregon, and USC. The Huskies are looking for 2-3 wideouts in the 2021 class and Tinae along with his teammate 3 star wideout Junior Alexander are being recruited and have been offered by UW (it also doesn’t hurt that their QB is 5 star QB commit Sam Huard). Tinae is more of a slot receiver when you watch him play (compared to Alexander who is an outside wideout).
The Huskies have been active recruiting tight ends (after only taking 2 tight ends this last cycle). New tight end coach Derham Cato has been scouring the country for talent and recently offered several tight ends from Texas. 3 star tight end Lake McRee from Lake Travis HS, TX recently de-committed from Texas. Listed at 6’4” and around 220 pounds the McRee holds offers from Texas, Texas A&M, and USC. 247sports has McRee rated as the 18th best tight end in the country (he suffered an injury that didn’t allow him to play this last year).
3 star tight end Landen King from Atascocita HS, TX is another Texas tight end the Huskies just offered. Listed at 6’4” and around 210 King holds offers from Tennessee, and Texas. King is rated by 247sports as the 20th tight end in the country. the Huskies will need to add 2 tight ends in the 2021 class (Cade Otton will be draft eligible again and the graduation of Jacob Kizer).
So far the Huskies have offered 61 players in the 2021 class versus 79 last year (keep in mind that we are still 9 months away from the December signing period). So far it appears that the Huskies are more active in extending offers from a #’s standpoint but also going beyond their typical geographic reach (15 of their offers are to players in Texas). Jimmy lake has stated that they will be a little more aggressive in recruiting going forward and it sure looks like he is practicing what he preaches.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
