The 2018 Washington Huskies Recruiting Class continues to grow in number and talent as running back Trey Lowe Commits
The future continues to shine ever brighter for the University of Washington Huskies recruiting class for 2018. On March 15, 2017, the ranks of the 2018 Washington Husky recruiting class grew once more. This time, 4-star running back/athlete Trey Lowe
The team had already lined up a five-star quarterback by the name of Jacob Sirmon from Bothell, WA. The team also landed a commitment from his cousin, 3-star outside linebacker Jack Sirmon from Brentwood, TN. The pair was joined by a third player when wide receiver Austin Osborne committed to join the ranks of the 2018 Washington Husky recruiting class on February 10, 2017. But the team did not stop there. The Huskies landed 4-star WR Maquis Spiker, as well as the versatile WR/TE Devin Culp.

Twin-Barrelled Shotgun Offense
The team even added a second highly scouted quarterback in Colson Yankoff. The presence of Yankoff and Sirmon gives the Washington Huskies offense a twin-barrelled shotgun. But the team needed running back talent to round everything out. And back in March 2017, that happened as well:
It’s been some time since we’ve checked in on the progress of head coach Chris Petersen. Since landing five-star quarterback Sirmon, the question became can the team surround his arm with equal skill players. With this commitment, the team appears prepared to answer that question with a hearty YES!
Lowe is no stranger to the football, adept at rushing or receptions. At a size of 5-foot=9 and 174 pounds, he projects as a ball carrier for now. But that does not disqualify him from setting up as an H-back or slot receiver as well. In fact, those attributes can be deadly in the NCAA, particularly as the Huskies rise in the rankings.
You Can Thank OT Jaxson Kirkland
Trey Lowe is an outstanding running back/skill player. And Coach Petersen did an awesome job recruiting this highly talented skill player. But I would be remiss if I failed to point out the fact that 2017 recruit Jaxson Kirkland hails from Jesuit, Oregon. In fact, when Kirkland announced his decision on twitter, Trey Lowe was one of the first to congratulate him.
Friendships, loyalty, and integrity play a vital role in collegiate recruiting.
While this commitment happened in March 2017, it still remains significant as the Washington Huskies.
