After a long, confusing recruiting process, Washington football landed a second tight end to round off their 2020 class
Washington football (finally) finished off the 2020 recruiting class in a huge way. Jack Yary originally committed to USC, then decommitted, and took an official visit to Washington before recommitting to the Trojans.
While Yary showed a lot of interest in the Huskies, it wasn’t really a surprise when he reaffirmed his USC commitment. His father, Ron Yary, is a USC legend at left tackle, and is a member of both the Pro and College Football Hall Of Fame, so Jack seemed like a shoo-in to carry on his father’s legacy.
The rumblings started when the Trojans first started practicing, and Yary was nowhere to be found. Then reports started coming out that he didn’t plan on enrolling in the school, and would be reconsidering his options. It didn’t seem to take long before the rumors that Yary would be coming to Seattle started. Yary posted a picture of his official visit to Washington on his Instagram story with the caption, “the future,” immediately after the reports that he would be leaving USC came out.
So why Washington? “It was just the family atmosphere and the way they use the position,” Yary said in an interview. “It’s the best fit for me. When I went up there the presentation was amazing and I loved the campus and the vibe I got from the team. They’re a real brotherhood and you can tell that they’re close.”
Combining the 6’6, 260 pound Yary, with fellow freshman, 6’5, 250 pound Mark Redman is going to be an elite tight end combination in the country. The two have elite pass-catching skill sets, and are going to be a nightmare for opposing defenses to cover.
It appears that Yary will be able to enroll at Washington immediately because he never officially did so with USC, and will be eligible for a potential season if one were to take place in January.
Congratulations to Jack on his commitment, and we can’t wait to see him play in purple and gold!
