Washington football lands a four-star tight end out of California for the 2020 class after not grabbing any players at the position during the 2019 recruiting cycle

Congratulations to Washington football’s latest recruit Mark Redman! The four-star tight end out of Corona Del Mar high school is the second member of the Sea Kings squad to commit to the Huskies during this recruiting cycle, as Redman’s teammate, quarterback Ethan Garbers committed in early March.

Redman has racked up 853 receiving yards and 12 touchdowns during his last two campaigns, but that doesn’t tell the full story, as Redman is an excellent, hard-nosed blocker, who will be the perfect addition to the Husky tight ends room. He looks to be in the same mold as guys like Will Dissly and Drew Sample.

The Huskies beat out a bunch of big-time powers for Redman, who also held offers from Alabama, Ohio State, Wisconsin, and Penn State. He also fills a huge position of need for the Huskies, who didn’t grab a tight end in the 2019 class. The 2020 recruiting class is shaping up to be a big one for the Huskies, and the Sea Kings teammates are definitely going to be pushing for other top prospects in Southern California to join them in Seattle.

Redman is already going after one of the top players in California, Mater Dei offensive lineman Myles Murao.

Southern California is an area that the Huskies really need to establish themselves during this recruiting cycle, it’s the second most important behind obviously, the Seattle area. Redman and Garbers are just starting the trend, now they need to get players like Murao, Johnny Wilson, Jordan Banks, and Kourt Williams.

The Huskies are building a strong tight ends room, as Devin Culp and Redmond are bound to be a strong combination at the position. This is the start of something great, and once again, congratulations to Mark Redmond!
