Happy Sunday Husky fans. With high school football in full swing on the west coast the Husky coaches have been able to check out some new film of guys they have been watching. One of those players just landed an offer from UW.
Unrated defensive tackle Hero Kanu from Santa Margarita HS, CA played his first varsity game recently and after watching some film the Huskies extended an offer to him. Listed at 6’5” and right under 300 pounds Kanu is an active defensive lineman that has very good quickness, and burst. After being offered by UW, Kanu was extended an offer from Oregon, USC, and TCU. The Huskies have a pretty good connection to Kanu, who is originally from Germany and just moved to the states. Last year the Huskies were able to land his teammate Maurice Heims, who is also from Germany. The Huskies should be able to get a visit from Kanu and right now they look like one of his favorite schools.
It sounds like the recruiting dead period should be ending on May 31st and I would expect UW to host several official visitors those first few weeks. The end of the dead period should greatly help UW with their 2022 recruiting class and allow prospects to check out campus and visit with coaches. As more games are played more offers should be extended by the Husky staff
In other news the Husky quarterback room is showcasing itself again on the gridiron, with Husky signee Sam Huard throwing for over 400 yards and 6 touchdowns. Through 2 games Huard has accounted for 13 touchdowns through the air and is showing people why he was rated as the #1 pocket passer in the country. Once his season is over Huard will immediately head over to Montlake to join spring practice and join the Huskies.
That is all for now and as always follow me @asieverkropp.
