Heading into the February signing period the Huskies have a few guys still on the board that they are looking to sign. Jimmy Lake and his staff have been busy on the road trying to wrap up these players and get them to sign on February 5th. Here is a look at who the Huskies are still after and who to keep an eye on leading up to February 5th:
4 star tight end Jack Yary from Murrieta Valley HS, CA recently narrowed his choice down to USC and UW. After visiting both schools officially it sounds like Yary will decide if he wants to join his dads Alma mater or to play in an offense that utilizes the tight end a lot. Listed at 6’6” and around 255 pounds Yary is a tight end that can block and catch the ball, but he is probably a better receiver right now. 247sports has Yary rated as the 10th best tight end in the 2020 class and 250th best player in the country. The Huskies have been trying to get 3 tight ends in the 2020 class and Yary would be a great addition to Derham Cato’s tight end room (and a great compliment to 4 star tight end Mark Redman). Here are some highlights of Yary:
3 star tight end Nick Sani from Central Catholic HS, CA is the other tight end that the Huskies are after (if they are unable to land Yary it sounds like they will take Sani). Listed at 6’6” and around 245 pounds Sani is a huge tight end that will probably need a couple of years to develop and see the field for the Huskies, but he has a good frame for the position already. 247sports has Sani rated as the 122nd best tight end in the 2020 class. He visited UW last weekend and it sounds like UW will land him if they want him.
The last player that the Huskies are looking to land is 3 star defensive lineman Tanoa Togiai from Rigby HS, ID. The Huskies haven’t landed a defensive lineman in the 2020 class yet and they really want to bring in Togiai (they are bringing in a 2017 defensive lineman who returned from a mission). Listed at 6’6” and around 290 pounds Togiai has a huge frame and if we joins the Husky program he could potentially play a role similar to Levi O (can play on the nose or the 3 technique after a few years in the weight room and working on his skill set). Togiai is rated by 247 as the 49th best strong side defensive end in the 2020 class and he will be making his announcement on signing day between Kansas State, Nebraska, Utah, and UW. His last visit was to UW and it sounds like they are in good shape to land him. Here is a look at some of his highlights:
The Huskies are also off to a good start with the 2021 class with commitments from 5 star quarterback Sam Huard from Kennedy Catholic HS, WA and the recent addition of 3 star defensive back Zakhari Spears from Loyola HS, CA. Spears is a long corner who is in the same mold of Kevin King and Keith Taylor (who are all listed at around 6’3” and have long arms). The Huskies have the 3rd best class in the pac 12 in 2021 as of right now (however Oregon already has 6 commits and USC has 4). The 2021 class is shaping up to be a highly rated class with the Huskies in on several 5 star players on the Huskies board (5 star defensive lineman JT Tuimoloau, 5 star wideout Emeka Egbuka, and 5 star receiver Troy Franklin).
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
