Washington lands three-star cornerback
By Mason Kelley
In a bit of a signing day surprise, Washington announced it has signed Patrick Enewally (Cerritos, Calif./Gahr).
The 6-foot-1, 190-pound cornerback was expected to commit to the Huskies last week, but it never happened. At one point, it appeared both the school and prospect had parted ways, but Enewally becomes the third cornerback to join this class.
What it means for Washington: Good in zone coverage, the three-star recruit can also come up and stop the run. His size gives the Huskies another cornerback who fits the mold the coaching staff covets.
Turning point: Washington was long considered a favorite for Enewally, but he appeared to be headed elsewhere earlier this week. Both the coaching staff and Enewally reunited in time for the recruit to sign his letter of intent Wednesday.
Surprise (scale of 1-5): Three. This comes as a little bit of a surprise, because there were reports last week that Enewally no longer had a scholarship offer from Washington. However, there was always interest between the prospect and the program, so as long as there was an offer on the table, there was a realistic possibility he would sign with the Huskies.
Immediate impact (scale of 1-5): Three. With three cornerbacks in this class, Enewally will have some competition to earn an opportunity to play as a freshman. It should be an interesting competition between Enewally, Kevin King (Oakland, Calif./Bishop O’Dowd) and Jermaine Kelly (Los Angeles/Salesian).
