2017 Washington Husky Recruiting Class Tracker January 26th


Washington Husky Recruiting momentum is back on the upswing. But now the Washington Husky recruiting is in a race against the clock. We’ll track updates as they happen

The University of Washington Husky recruiting is in a very fluid state right now.  The team has just been ranked as the 20th best in the nation by Sports Illustrated.

17 young men are committed to the Washington Husky recruiting class for 2017. Each young man is taking a significant step towards realizing their dreams of success in NCAA football.  They all share a passion for the competitiveness and athletic demands of college football.  Each recruit is different, but they all share the same passion for football. They arrive talented but raw, inspired but unfocused.  Each will be mentored, developed, and forged by Coach Chris Petersen into a valuable, integral component of a playoff caliber football team.  Petersen has a knack for enriching young men’s lives, and performances. He’ll do the same with this class.

Enough Time Remains To Improve

Still, less than a week remains until the February 1st National Signing Day. And there is still hope for additional commitments. With one or possibly two slots remaining, fans hope for the news that someone new will step forward to join the Huskies in 2017.  In fact, the Washington Huskies recruiting efforts have identified 21 plus ONE  players currently under consideration.

(7) EVEN MORE RUMORS former 4-star recruit defensive tackle Breiden Fehoko has announced a desire to transfer from his current school of Texas Tech reports Brandon Soliz of sportsday.dallasnews.com report. While he is not truly a “recruit”, he would be a nice player to join the Huskies.

He made 38 total tackles and 7.5 tackles for loss in his two seasons with Texas Tech. In 2016, Fehoko posted 19 tackles, 3.5 for loss, and one sack. As a true sophomore Fehoko will need to sit out 2017 unless he drops down to the FCS. This would be a nice addition for the Washington Huskies, who know they will need to address next year’s loss of Vita Vae. Stay tuned to this one.
