Washington football’s offensive line coach Scott Huff has been on a recruiting tear over the last few years, and he’s not slowing down
Washington football is building a wall along the offensive line, and they’ve gotten their first commit in the class of 2021! The Huskies were the first Power 5 school to offer Robert Wyrsch, and they were rewarded with a commitment from the massive 6’7, 270-pound offensive tackle.
Keep in mind that Wyrsch has only been playing football for 18 months, and he was able to earn offers to Fresno State, San Jose State, and Harvard among a few others. The more time he has to get bigger and stronger, the better. With a lot of talent in front of him, combined with the guys along the defensive line that he’ll be practicing against, is a recipe for success. With five years of that in front of him, Huff will surely have more than enough time to turn Wyrsch into a top tier tackle.
Wyrsch is drawing a lot of comparisons to another Huff signee during his time at Boise State, Ezra Cleveland. A big, athletic, moldable player who moves very well along the defensive line. A lot of Wrysch’s film comes at either defensive end or defensive tackle, and he displays great strength and get-off on the snap.
Much like Samuel Peacock from the class of 2020, Wrysch is going to take some time to develop, but the payoff will be well worth the wait. With Peacock, Roger Rosengarten, Julius Buelow, Victor Curne, Troy Fautanu, and Nathaniel Kalepo in front of him, that’s a lot of talent and competition that will help bring the best out of everyone in the room.
After getting off to a slow start, Jimmy Lake and his staff have begun to pick it up on the recruiting trail, securing four verbal commitments over the past two weeks. The Huskies are building something special in the class of 2021, and guys like Wyrsch who they can build around for the long term are very important to the future of the program.
Congratulations to Robert on his commitment, and we can’t wait to see him play in purple and gold!
