The Washington Huskies have received a letter of intent from Damore’ea Stringfellow, the 6’3” 203-pound wide receiver from Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, CA. The signing of the highly-touted receiver is not a shock, as he committed to Washington as part of the eight-man group of verbal commits on June 29th, 2012, and, despite offers from national powerhouses such as Ohio State, Florida, and Michigan, he has not wavered in his commitment since that time.
Stringfellow is the highest-rated member of Coach Sarkisian’s Class of 2013, a consensus four-star recruit that Rivals, ESPN, and Scout all rate within the top-11 at his position. Alongside Darrell Daniels and John Ross, two other four-star wide receivers that are expected to sign with the Huskies without much drama, Stringfellow headlines one of the most highly-rated pass-catching groups in the entire Class of 2013, and while he shouldn’t be expected to turn into an instant star, I would be surprised if he did not receive substantial playing time as a freshman, and I would be shocked if he redshirted.
He is a difference maker, both physically and skill-wise, so fans and Husky quarterbacks alike should eagerly await his contributions over the next several years.
