Happy Sunday Husky fans. This week brought some more good news when UW landed another in-state lineman (Vega Ioane). The Husky class is shaping up pretty well and I would expect a few more commits during June.
The Husky coaches have also been looking at prospects in the 2023 class. They recently extended a few new offers in the class.
4 star safety Braxton Myers from Coppell HS, TX was extended a Husky offer this last week. Listed at 6’1” and around 185 pounds Myers has good size for the safety position, but he can also play some corner if needed. Rated as the 11th best safety in the 2023 class UW is trying to dip into Texas more and more to land players. Myers already holds offers from Texas, LSU, and Michigan so UW will have their work cut out for them to try and land Myers. However, he is scheduled to visit UW unofficially the last weekend in June, which bodes well for UW. When you watch his film you can see how physical he is out on the field which is why I am sure lots of schools are looking at him as a safety.
The Huskies also extended another new offer to Colin Gill from St John’s HS, DC. The Huskies are the first offer for Gill, who is currently unrated. When you watch his film you can see a physical corner who likes to come up and tackle but also can man up and cover wideouts. I am not sure why Gill hasn’t received any other offers, but the Husky coaches appear to have found a hidden gem of a player who looks like he can play D1 football. It’s been a long time since the Huskies went all the way over to the east coast to land a player (Ezekiel Turner technically was from MD, but he went to a community college out west).
The Huskies were busy looking in Texas again when they extended an offer to 4 star outside linebacker Enow Etta from Covenant Christian Academy HS, TX. Rated as the 11th best edge player in the 2023 class, the Huskies joined ASU, Oklahoma State, and Wisconsin in offering Etta. Listed at 6’4” and around 220 pounds Etta is a lengthy player who can really get after the quarterback. The Huskies would love to land more players from Texas and a player like Etta would definitely help the Huskies along rush the quarterback.
In other news the Huskies did have some local players unofficially visit campus this last week. The headliner was 5 star offensive tackle Josh Conerly from Rainier Beach HS, WA. The Huskies would love to add Conerly to their 2022 class and wrap up their offensive line recruiting but it’ll probably be a while before he makes his decision. The Huskies also had 2 local running backs on campus (from the 2022 class and 2023 class) with Djouvensky Schlenbaker from Squailcum HS, WA and Jayden Limar from Lake Stevens HS, WA both got a chance to check out Montlake. As June continues to move along more and more local prospects will continue to check out UW and most will be at UW the last weekend of June (the 2022 targets probably on officials or participating in the Husky rising stars camp on the 26th).

Great visit to UW yesterday. I really appreciate the time the coaches took out of their schedules to set up this visit and to get to know me better.
