Washington football has offered 2026 quarterback prospect Ryder Lyons.
The Washington football program loves to recruit quarterbacks from Folsom High School in California.
They recruited Jake Browning in 2015 who threw for nearly 17,000 yards and 229 touchdowns at while at Folsom. Browning became the second-ever true freshman to start at quarterback for the Huskies and led the team to a College Football Playoff appearance against Alabama in 2016.
They also recruited Austin Mack who was originally part of the 2024 class but reclassified to the 2023 class and enrolled at the University of Washington early. He has a chance to become the starter when Michael Penix Jr. leaves following the season.
Now, they offer a second Folsom High quarterback in two years.
Washington football recruiting profile: QB Ryder Lyons
Lyons could be the second Folson quarterback to join the Kalen DeBoer regime. He is listed as 6’2″ and 185 pounds and has already earned 13 scholarship offers. This says a lot about his potential considering he has yet to start at the high school level. Lyons, however, did play in one game last season for the Folsom Bulldogs where he had three carries for 24 yards and one touchdown.
He also participated in Sacramento State University’s Rising Stars Mega Camp this past week where 2,000 junior college and high school football players got to showcase their skills. Lyons walked away with offers from San Diego State, Washington, and Nevada.
The Huskies are also competing with BYU, California, Oregon, Colorado, Oregon State, Pittsburgh, Sacramento State, Washington State, UNLV, and Utah for Lyons’ commitment but that’s still a few years out.
