Five June 2017 predictions for Washington Football recruiting resulted in getting three of five correct. Now time to face the music
Washington Football recruiting is a difficult matter for prognosticators. Sometimes the act of prediction throws everything into another direction. Sometimes priorities shuffle along the way. And in the end, sometimes the timing is simply “off”.
Finally, the results of the June 2017 bold predictions are in, and despite all the risks, the five scored with three. That’s not bad for a first effort. So let’s review what they were:
Five Bold June Predictions
First Prediction: The Washington Huskies will get a commitment from an offensive lineman.
Second Prediction: The Huskies will extend two more offers
Third Prediction: A tight end will commit.
Fourth Prediction: The Defense will get commitments from 1 to 3 players
Fifth Prediction: THe Huskies 2018 recruiting class rank as high as 7th nationally.
What I got right
And so, in this category I got one, two, and five correct. On one hand, the first landed late in the month when offensive tackle Matteo Mele committed. On the other hand, the second occurred when the team extended offers to safety Ralen Goforth
And to wide receiver Maureese Wren
And finally, the third happened when the Washington Football team recruiting class of 2018 tied Alabama for sixth best nationally on a “per recruit” basis.
What I got wrong
In this category, I got three and four wrong. Neither tight end nor defensive players committed in June 2017. It was a low probability. But Washington Football team recruiting slowed down considerably. Much slower, in fact, than I expected.
The team is close on a number of defensive players. And the tight end position is one I expect the team to fill soon. In the end, I missed the timing.
It wasn’t a terribly poor showing, but it certainly leaves room to improve. So that’s just what we’ll do. Unlike many, we face the music whether right or wrong. Hopefully we’ll see more right going forward.
