Happy Sunday Husky fans. With the NCAA deciding to extend the dead period into May there may not be much new news (outside of some new offers going out) or commits between now and then. The Husky program is one that relies on prospects visiting Montlake and spending time with the coaching staff. Despite the extended dead period the Husky coaches are still on the recruiting trail and with states like Washington opening high school football, the coaching staff is now able to evaluate prospects. After a few games it’s likely the Husky staff will extend some new 2022 and 2023 offers.
This last week the Huskies did extend a new offer in the 2023 class. 4 star tight end/defensive end Brett Norfleet from Francis Howell HS, MO. It sounds like the Huskies offered Howell as a tight end, but 247sports has him rated as a defensive end. Norfleet is rated as the 16th best player in the 2023 class, and he currently holds offers from ASU, Arkansas, Florida State, and Tennessee. The offer to Norfleet is another national offer for the Huskies. Norfleet is a versatile athlete who has played football and baseball, and when you watch his film you can see how great of an all around tight end he is and how good of a fit he would be in the Huskies offense (his athleticism is excellent and he is a willing blocker). Norfleet is likely to get some interest from a lot of other schools and it will be a dogfight to get him to visit Montlake.
That is all for today and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
