Like father, like son! Washington football has landed a huge commitment from 5-star quarterback Sam Huard.
Damon Huard was a star with Washington football, and now it’s Sam Huard’s turn, as the 2021 quarterback has verbally committed to the program. Sam is the top rated pro-style quarterback in the 2021 class, and the second overall rated quarterback. He’s also rated 13th overall in the 2021 class, which could be a huge one for Chris Petersen and the Huskies, as it’s arguably the best class in state history.
Huard is already a prolific passer, and on his way to have one of the best careers in Washington high school history. Through two seasons at Kennedy Catholic, he has thrown for 7,573 yards and 76 touchdowns to just 10 interceptions. His stats saw a huge jump during his sophomore season, as he averaged 414 yards per game and threw 42 touchdowns. When he gets to UW, he’ll join an already loaded quarterback room that’ll feature Dylan Morris, Jacob Sirmon, and Colson Yankoff. The Huskies are going to be set at quarterback for a long, long time.
The 2021 Class
As I mentioned, this class might be the best in state history. There are three 5-star recruits from the state of Washington, including the number one player in the country J.T Tuimoloau out of Eastside Catholic. Emeka Egbuka at Steilacoom is the third five star along with Huard. In all, the state of Washington has five players in the top 50 nationally. This is going to be a very important class for Coach Petersen to win, because he can’t let schools like Alabama and Ohio State come into his house and take these prized in-state prospects. He was still trying to get his feet on the ground recruiting-wise during the Foster Sarell sweepstakes, and the recruitment of Sav’ell Smalls will be very telling into what might happen with Tuimoloau and Egbuka. The commitment of Faatui Tuitele was gigantic, but it’s just a start. There are big things coming at UW, national championship sized things.
