Happy Sunday Husky fans. There isn’t a ton going on right now but one of the 2021 prospects that is still left on the board has set his commitment date.
3 star safety Vincent Nunley from Freedom HS, CA has set his commitment on the 3rd of September. Listed at 6’1” and around 180 pounds, Nunley has good size for the safety position. 247sports rates Nunley as the 99th best safety in the 2021 class. With offers from Kansas, Utah, and the Huskies, Nunley has some good options to consider. The Huskies are looking at Nunley as a ball hawking safety for the secondary.
Last year Nunley accounted for 25 tackles and 5 interceptions. When you watch him play you can see how much of a ballhawk Nunley is. The Huskies need to add at least another safety in the 2021 class and Nunley looks like he will commit to the Huskies on the 3rd. If the Huskies can land Nunley they will more than likely wrap up their DB class for 2021.
If the Huskies add Nunley they will have around 2-3 spots left with some big names still on the board. The Huskies are still after 5 star wide receiver Emeka Egbuka from Steilacoom HS, WA. They are battling Oklahoma and Ohio State for his commitment. The challenge for the Huskies in landing Egbuka will be showing him how well the new offense will operate (since there is no fall season). Right now I would say that Egbuka is favoring Ohio State still but the Huskies are still hanging around.
The Huskies are also still pursuing JT Tuimoloau from Eastside Catholic, HS WA. It sounds like Tuimoloau is about to narrow his list down (to a top list of schools). The Huskies should be on the list but right now they are battling Ohio State, Oklahoma, and Oregon for his commitment. The Huskies would love to add Tuimoloau and keep him home (and close to his family). Both JT and Emeka will wait a while before they make their decisions but the Husky coaches will need to continue to show both players that they can be local hometown players and be developed for the next level.
That is all for now and always follow me @asieverkropp.
