Washington football could become a recruiting hotspot for wide receivers.
Washington football has the best wide receiver duo in college football behind Ohio State with Rome Odunze and Jalen McMillan. The four-star recruits joined the Huskies in 2020 and had a breakout season in 2022 under head coach Kalen DeBoer.
It was also beneficial for their development to get to play with a quarterback like Michael Penix Jr, who set passing records with the Huskies last season.
This season will likely be the last with both Odunze and McMillan as they are expected to declare for the NFL Draft. However, the Huskies have done their homework and have prepared for the loss of their star receivers.
This year they added four-star prospects Taeshaun Lyons and Rashad Williams, three-star Keith Reynolds as well as four-star transfer Germie Bernard.
Washington football also received commitments from four-star Jason Robinson Jr and three-star Justice Williams for the 2024 recruiting class.
The Huskies aren’t short on talent at the wide receiver position and it looks like it will be that way for a while. Washington could very well become a recruiting hotspot for wide receivers in the future if they can keep successfully developing wide receivers at a high level.
Recently, there was concern around Washington’s ability recruiting efforts overall, but a crucial factor in their renewed success on the recruiting trail is the hiring of Kalen DeBoer. DeBoer’s leadership and vision have revitalized the program, making it an enticing option for talented recruits. Additionally, the expertise and guidance provided of wide receiver coach JaMarcus Shepard has played a pivotal role in the development of Washington’s receiving corps.
As the Huskies continue to foster the growth and success of their wide receivers, it is increasingly likely that Washington will become a sought-after destination for top talent in the years ahead.
