The 2018 Washington Huskies Recruiting Class Grew In Number as 4-Star Wide Receiver Marquis Spiker Commits
It’s been a wild ride recently for the University of Washington Huskies. From WNBA to NFL, the team has had quite a year so far in shipping record setting athletes to the ranks of professional sports. Now, it’s time to begin filling our own ranks. So we have a bit of catching up to do. So let’s get right to it.
In a clear sign of commitment to loading up on the offensive front, University of Washington Husky head coach Chris Petersen continues to virtually hand pick the best of the Pacific Northwest.
Now Spiker joins Austin Osborn and Devin Culp on what is evolving into a formidable passing attack offense. In fact, it’s early in the recruiting process and it appears to well stacked. In fact, 6-foot-3 Spiker and 6-foot-3 Osborne look up to 6-foot-5 Culp.
With that much talent at those altitudes, the Washington Huskies are poised to have a wide open aerial assault to match a very productive ground game.
But it won’t be all ground and pound when Spiker lines up. Per Maxpreps.com, Spiker has recorded 161 receptions for 3,166 yards and 45 touchdowns in just two years. While Spiker won’t completely replace the speed of WR John Ross, he does have unexpected bursts of “quick” which enable him to create separation from defensive backs.
We have lots more to cover in the coming days. But at the moment, the receiving corps for the Washington Huskies in 2018 appears to be in very good hands. Literally.
