Recruiting Rewind: Washington
By Mason Kelley
For the second time this season, Washington took advantage of an opportunity to send a message to the prospects the program is recruiting by knocking off a top-10 opponent on the Huskies' home field.
After watching Washington beat Oregon State, 20-17, Bellevue (Wash.) teammates Sean Constantine (a Washington commit) and Myles Jack (a UCLA commit) continue to feel the program is pointed in the right direction.
They shared the same sentiment with the other local prospects who were in the stands on unofficial visits. The Huskies’ win also impressed sophomore quarterback Ross Bowers (Bothell, Wash./Bothell) and junior running back Devante Downs (Mountlake Terrace, Wash./Mountlake Terrace), among others.
Washington didn’t have any official visitors Saturday, but it timed the win well, considering receiver commit Damore’ea Stringfellow (Moreno Valley, Calif./Rancho Verde) spent the weekend watching Nebraska beat Michigan, 23-9, during his official visit to Lincoln, Neb.
It was the kind of win that keeps kids committed and gives those who remain on the Huskies’ wish list something to consider.
