Happy Sunday Husky fans. Recruiting for the 2021 class is standing pat for the moment, but they are still recruiting several guys and it looks like they will try to add at least 2-4 more players to their 2021 class. Today I wanted to take a look at the 2022 wide receiver recruiting board:
So far the Huskies have offered 5 wideouts, and it looks like they are going to take 2-3 wideouts in the class.
The Huskies already have a commitment from 4 star wide receiver Germie Bernard from Liberty HS, NV. Listed at 6’2 and around 195 pounds Bernard is rated as the 181st best player and 23rd wide receiver in the 2022 class. Bernard is a physical wideout who doesn’t have blazing speed but what he lacks in top end speed he makes up for in good route running, and great ball skills (he is also one of the more physical wideouts in the class).
Out of the 5 wideouts that they have offered the Huskies are doing well with 4 star wideouts Darrius Clemons from Pleasant Grove HS, UT (originally from Oregon), and 4 star wideout Tobias Merriweather from Union HS, WA.
Clemons who is rated as the 168th best player in the country and 19th best wideout in the country (per 247sports). Listed at 6’3” and around 195 pounds Clemons has good speed and size for the wide receiver position. This summer he clocked a 4.37 electronic timed 40z Clemons has offers from around the country but he is looking most closely at Michigan, Notre Dame, Oregon, Stanford and UW. Last year Clemons had 24 catches for 408 yards and 6 touchdowns. The Huskies would like to land Clemons but they have a lot of competition for his commitment.
Merriweather is another big time wide receiver that the Huskies are after. Listed at 6’4” and around 185 pounds Merriweather is rated by 247sports as the 70th best player in the country and 7th best wide receiver. Right now Merriweather is looking the most at UW, Oregon, USC, and Oklahoma. Last year Merriweather accounted for 43 catches for 766 yards and 5 touchdowns. Merriweather is a huge target who has excellent speed and smooth route running. The Huskies would love to add Merriweather and keep him home in the 2022 class.
The Huskies have also offered 5 star wide receiver Tetairoa McMillan from Servite HS, CA and 4 star receiver CJ Williams from Mater Dei HS, CA. The Huskies are involves but on the outside looking in for both wide outs. Depending on how the Huskies finish up the 2021 class they may just take the first of Clemons or Merriweather or both (depending on if they can land Emeka Egbuka and another player). Wide receiver coach Junior Adams is one of the better recruiters on staff and looks like he is on track to have another strong 2022 class.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
