Washington football needs to knock recruiting out of the park in-state for the class of 2022
After retaining just four of the top 10 prospects in the state of Washington (assuming J.T. Tuimoloau commits elsewhere), Washington football needs to reverse that trend with the class of 2022. There are six four-star prospects in the state, and it’s crucial for Jimmy Lake and his staff to secure all of their commitments.
But the staff shouldn’t stop there, there are multiple super talented three-star prospects in the state that either hold an offer or deserve one. With that being said, let’s take a look at who’s on Lake’s radar in the next recruiting cycle.
The Top Dawgs
Josh Conerly- The best offensive lineman on the west coast, and arguably in the country, Conerly currently attends Rainier Beach High School. He holds an offer to every major program around the country, and the Huskies should be in it until the end for him. Offensive line coach Scott Huff has proven that he’s one of the best recruiters in the country, and Conerly would be his biggest win to date, outside of Myles Murao, but that’s strictly because Murao went to Mater Dei (Calif.) High School.
Tobias Merriweather- An elite receiver that Sam Huard would definitely love to continue throwing to, Merriweather is a must get target for receivers coach Junior Adams. The 6’4 product of Union High School has number one receiver potential written all over him, and is a crisp route runner for his size. As he continues to add strength, he’ll add to his prowess as a jump ball receiver as well.
Malik Agbo- Another elite offensive lineman, the product of Todd Beamer High has had an NFL ready body since his freshman year. Now standing at 6’6, and nearly 300 pounds, he looks like he could start on Huff’s line as a true freshman. Possessing a lot of natural power in his lower body, as well as exceptional feet, he has future NFL starter written all over him.
