With the 2018 season winding down, Washington Football fans are already looking forward to next season. The biggest question in college football is who’s next?

College football is a constant revolving door of players.  In spite of that, the best coaches know how to replace their talent. They must, as players continuously graduate and/or leave for the NFL. The Washington Football team has a  number of those high-caliber players this year.  And so the question is who will step up for head coach Chris Petersen next season?

Coach Petersen values fit over talent in his recruiting classes.  That being said, Petersen continues to recruit better and better classes to the team.   Now, has managed to gather his two best recruiting classes ever in the past two years.  All the while, there is plenty of reason to believe some players can step up. Right now, projections of players graduating and going to the NFL include some talented playmakers.  They include: WR Dante Pettis, DT Vita Vea, LB Keishawn Bierria, RB Myles Gaskin, LB Azeem Victor, and more.

Great coaches deliver great talent

That means the NFL will see some incredibly talented rookies in 2018.  Still, the NFL gains are the Huskies losses. So who will slide in to fill the void?  If this keeps you awake at night, never fear. The same coaching staff who continue to raise the bar each year are still working both sides of the team improvement.   Not only do these coaches identify highly talented players who will fit the needs of the team, but they double as mentors and coaches who help them to realize their full potential.

But in the end, who will shine next season?  That is where we help sort through it all.  We have three such new prospects who could make a significant impact for the 2018 team: Sam Taimani, Ty Jones, and Camilo Eifler
