Second Prediction: The Huskies will extend an offer for 2019
While the coaches focus on assembling the roster for 2018, there will be efforts to attract 2019 talent as well. In fact, the Washington Football coaches have already begun the search for 2019 class commitments. So far the team has 22 offers out.
So why just one? Or even, why one at all?

Washington loves to find talent that has not yet appeared on the national radar. First to arrive and stay committed to an athlete speaks volumes to their eventual consideration. And right now, the athletes projected for the recruiting class of 2019 are not obvious.
Washington Football coaches have unique criteria
That’s just how Washington Football coaches like it.
So far, they’ve managed to uncover the talent which fits the program best. That may run counter to the national rankings. It may result in a lower ranked class overall. But unless the program is Alabama, the rankings of recruits does not result in the best football team.
Washington Huskies know this. They are about heart, passion, and desire. In the college ranks, the player who wants it more makes all the difference in the world.
And the Huskies coaches simply seek out the players who want it most of all. While that all takes time, one more 2019 athlete will have what it takes to earn a University of Washington scholarship offer.
