Happy Super Bowl Sunday Husky fans. The Husky coaches have been busy this last week on the recruiting trail. Not only did they add a transfer wideout (Ja’Lynn Polk from Texas Tech), but they also extended a few new offers in the 2022 and 2023 class. Here is a look at a few of those offers:
3 star quarterback Drew Allar from Medina HS, OH was offered by UW after excelling this past season on the field. Listed at 6’5” and around 210 pounds Allar has the size and arm strength to play in the NFL down the road. 247sports currently has him rated as the 17th best pro-style quarterback in the 2022. Right now Allar holds offers from the likes of Iowa, Michigan, Penn State, and Texas A&M. When you watch his film you can see how effortless throwing the football is for Allar, and his arm strength also pops. He also has better than expected mobility for his size. The Huskies will take at least 1 QB in the 2022 class and Allar is a guy who would be a perfect fit in the Husky offense.
Locally the Huskies extended a new offer in the 2023 class to Jasiah Wagoner from Spanaway HS, WA. Listed at 6’0” and around 170 pounds Wagoner is currently rated as the 8th best cornerback in the 2023 class. Wagoner has offers from Oregon, Penn State, and WSU. The Huskies would love to add Wagoner to the 2023 class, but it looks it may be another UW and Oregon battle for him. When you watch him play Wagoner looks like a ballhawk and a potential replacement for Trent McDuffie if McDuffie stays for his 4th year. The Husky offer was big for Wagoner and I would say the Huskies may be in the drivers seat as of right now.
The Huskies also extended an offer in Texas when they offered defensive end David Hicks from Morton Ranch HS, TX. Listed at 6’3” and around 245 pounds Hicks currently holds offers from Texas, Texas A&M, Oklahoma, and Tennessee. Hicks isn’t currently rated by 247sports, but this last season he accounted for 5 sacks and 12 tackles for loss. The Huskies have some serious competition for Hicks, but the Huskies will continue to try and and add a few Texas prospects every year. Hicks looks like one of the top defensive ends in the 2023 class.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
