Incoming fresman recruit Inside linebacker Brandon Kaho lands fifth-star, becoming the first for Washington Football head coach Chris Petersen
The 2018 recruiting class for the Washington Football team has many great narratives among the incoming freshmen. From a double barreled shotgun, to soft hands, each prospect brings an intensity and passion. But perhaps the coup de grace is the thrilling narrative unfolding over the interior linebacker positions. Inside linebackers M.J. Tafisi combining his thunderous power with the devastation of lightning-fast quickness of Brandon Kaho. The power of Thunder and Lightning.
The sound of rumbling thunder in the distance on a hot summer night can be calming and thrilling. And when lightning flashes across the sky, watching from a living room window can be quite the light show, even if the carnage disrupts your power. In the midst of the maelstrom, you can be calm and simply watch the incredible display of power. In the midst of summer heat, there is an eye of peace and contentment as rain washes away the heat and stress.
Replacing stars with new stars
The Washington Football team may have captured the sheer force of both thunder and lightning in the 2018 recruiting class. But they virtually had to. After all, the team is losing both Azeem Victor and Keishawn Bierria this year, and both had made significant contributions to the team durning their tenure.
There is no way to fully replace Victor and Bierria. However, there is a way to refurbish the team with new talent with equal game-changing potential. Tafisi is the boom. Brandon Kaho is that dazzling brilliance. So bright, that he has just been upgraded from a four-star to a five star. And in doing so, he becomes the first five-star recruit under head coach Chris Petersen’s tenure:
2018 continues to shine ever so brightly.
