Washington football has added a ton of talented players through the transfer portal in the last few seasons.
As the Huskies prepare for the upcoming season, three more impactful transfers have joined their ranks, infusing the team with newfound talent and depth.
Together, these transfers add incredible potential to their respective positions, setting the stage for an exciting season ahead.
3 impactful transfers for Washington Football
RB Dillon Johnson – Mississippi State
Dillon Johnson, the fourth-rated running back in the transfer portal per 247sports, brings immense potential to the Huskies backfield. Known for his great vision and quickness, Johnson’s skills make him a valuable asset. Additionally, his ability to act as a receiver adds versatility to his game.
Johnson spent the last three seasons at Mississippi State under Mike Leach in an Air Raid system. He rushed for 1,198 yards, and 11 touchdowns as well as catching 149 passes for 864 yards and one touchdown.
While Johnson joins a crowded running back room, this could be the second year in a row that a transfer may get the starting running back spot for the Huskies.
CB Jabbar Muhammad – Oklahoma State
Transfer corner Jabbar Muhammad brings much-needed experience to the Huskies’ secondary. He started all 12 games last season for the Oklahoma State Cowboys while the Huskies struggled with an array of injuries at the same position.
In 2022, Muhammad recorded 48 tackles, one interception, and one forced fumble. His ball skills make him a significant asset to the team, fortifying the secondary and elevating the Huskies’ defensive capabilities.
OL Jalen Klemm – Kansas State
Offensive lineman Jalen Klemm emerges as a significant and promising asset to the Washington football program. He possesses remarkable versatility that allows him to play anywhere on the offensive line.
The Huskies are known for developing quality offensive linemen which makes Klemm’s arrival all the more noteworthy. With an impressive four years of eligibility still ahead due to redshirting last year for Kansas State, Klemm has plenty of time to harness his skills and contribute substantially to the team’s success in the coming seasons.
