Prediction 1: The Washington Huskies will get a commitment from an offensive lineman
The Washington Huskies have pulled plenty of skilled talent to the team. Now the team has some need for the offensive trenches.
The team will likely be filling the void of graduating senior Andrew Kirkland and teammate Trey Adams. In an early 2018 NFL Draft mockup, ESPN’s Mel Kiper projects Adams as a first round projection.

That will create two openings on the left side of the offensive line. While the Huskies are already grooming players to fill the starting lineup, the team will need to replenish the ranks in 2018.
Some unexpected but very welcome news has already addressed the offensive line when offensive lineman Chase Skuza declared he is joining the team as a walk-on redshirt. Skuza arrives at the right time to the right team, as his 6-foot-6 300 pound frame is the perfect framework to anchor the line.
A perfect compliment to the future of the offensive line would be a prospect like M.J. Ale out of Tacoma Washington. Ale is 6-foot-5 and weighs in at 330 pounds and is a great fit for the Washington Huskies. He currently has six schools to choose from, including the April 5, 2017 offer from the Huskies.
