Before he commits to (hopefully) Washington football tomorrow, let’s take a look at this incredible, top 100 prospect out of Colorado!

There’s a reason the Washington football coaching staff is so high on Roger Rosengarten, the top 100 prospect according to the 247 sports rankings, is definitely going to be a big riser during his senior season. My jaw was on the floor watching this kid by the end of his first play on his junior film.

He’s everything the Washington coaching staff wants in an offensive lineman, and personally, he reminds me of a more athletic Trey Adams. Rosengarten currently measures in at 6’7, 275 pounds, and I think he might be best utilized as a guard with his quickness and ability to get to the second level to block. He plays the game with an edge, and has the power to blow up smaller players when he gets his hands on them. The anger, aggression, and edge he plays with is the perfect mentality for any offensive lineman, and he would fit in perfectly at Washington. Speaking of which… let’s talk about his

Fit at Washington

The Huskies need to establish a physical edge in the Pac-12, and Rosengarten is a perfect player to help get that point across to the rest of the conference. Projecting him with current players on the roster, he would be an excellent left guard next to Julius Buelow at left tackle, Troy Fautanu at right guard, and Nathaniel Kalepo at right tackle. That’s an offensive line that might not give up a sack all season.

He’ll definitely need some time to put on weight and adjust to the college game, but with the recruits the Huskies have coming in on the other side of the ball, there’s no one better to practice against, and with strength coach Tim Socha, there’s no one better to help him put on weight. And we can’t forget the excellent offensive line coach Scott Huff, who would work wonders with him and his transition to guard. Practicing against D-linemen like Faatui Tuitele, Jacob Bandes, and Sama Paama will do nothing but help Rosengarten.

This kid is the definition of a Husky, and he would look great in purple and gold.
