Washington football’s in-state class of 2022 is underway! Tight ends coach Derham Cato doesn’t need to leave the state to secure his top targets
Washington football is off to a hot start for the class of 2022, this time landing the services of Lincoln (Tacoma) High School’s Chance Bogan! Bogan is a top 400 rated prospect by 247 Sports, and is currently seated as the nation’s 361st overall player in the class of 2022. That’s right on the borderline of being a four-star player, and with two seasons left to play, and a lot of time to physically mature, it wouldn’t be a surprise to see him shoot up the rankings.
Bogan is currently listed at 6’3, 215 pounds, and plays both wide receiver and tight end for the Abes. He could end up being the Huskies’ bigger version of Hunter Bryant, but he might be utilized in line a little more because if he can get up to around 225-230 pounds, he could be an excellent blocker.
He’s also a legacy, as his father Curtis Bogan, played linebacker for the Huskies.
On tape, Bogan’s experience as a wide receiver really shows, he runs crisp routes, has great hands, and has a frame that can easily carry another 20-25 pounds of muscle, that will serve him well at the college level. He adds depth to what was already one of the best tight end rooms in the country, and will most likely end up spending his first year as a redshirt.
One of the best parts about getting Bogan’s commitment this early is that he can get to work recruiting the rest of the highly touted in-state players in the class of 2022. He’s already listed his top targets, “Now I’m going to start recruiting my boys like Josh Conerly, Tobias Merriweather, Dishawn Misa and a lot more,” he said in an interview with 247 Sports’ Brandon Huffman. He could even lend a hand in recruiting 2021’s number one overall player, J.T. Tuimoloau, as the two work out together at Ford Sports Performance.
It looks like the Huskies will take one more tight end in the 2022 class, and it’s more than likely going to be another local prospect, Ryan Otton, whose brother Cade currently plays the position at UW. Things are off to a great start for Jimmy Lake and staff in 2022, now the question is, who’s next?
Congratulations to Chance on his commitment, and we can’t wait to see him play in purple and gold!
