With the final national signing day for the players in the class of 2024 in the rearview, the Huskies have signed sixteen players from the class of 2024 and they finished with the 38th ranked high school class based on the 247sports rankings.

Now that the recruiting class is locked in we are going to provide a one-sentence scouting report on all of the high school recruits the Huskies signed based on what I have seen on film as I am a high school recruiting analyst on top of being a high-level high school football coach.

The players will be listed in descending order from the highest-ranked recruit to the lowest-ranked recruit based on the 247sports class of 2024 high school rankings. In part one of this two-part series, we are going to provide the scouting report on the top eight players from the class of 2024 signees.

Scouting every Washington football Class of 2024 Signee: Part 1

4-star OL Paki Finau (6'5" 253lbs)

Finau is the highest-ranked recruit in the Huskies' 2024 class and has experience playing all across the offensive line. He currently projects as a guard at the college level as he is currently a mauler in pass protection as opposed to being a controlled technician which is what a tackle has to be.

4-star QB Demond Williams (5'9" 174lbs)

Williams is an elite track level athlete who is excellent running the ball but he also possesses very good arm talent as he can make very throw on the field from different throwing platforms and arm angles while also being able to throw with touch.

4-star QB Dermaricus Davis (6'4" 190lbs)

With the prototypical size that is coveted by every major college program, Davis has a cannon for an arm as the ball explodes out of his hands which allows him to make every throw on the field.

4-star DB Peyton Waters (6'2" 170lbs)

Waters was a track athlete in high school and it shows on film as he is explosive breaking on routes to break up passes. He projects as a safety thanks to his downhill speed and willingness to tackle running backs on top of the fact that he doesn't have the smoothest backpedal.

4-star ATH Rahshawn Clark (6'0" 180lbs)

Clark is a track star who has played both receiver and defensive back at a high level in high school. Clark could play receiver or corner for the Huskies because he possesses elite ball skills which allows him to catch any ball that is thrown in his vicinity on top of having elite speed that will make him one of the fastest players on the field.

3-star WR Justice Williams (6'4" 195lbs)

Williams has WR1 upside because he possesses the elite speed to run by corners and he can accelerate and decelerate well while also being six-foot-four. He is no slouch as a route runner though as he can run most of the routes on the route tree and when the ball is in his hands he is more than willing to break tackles.

3-star DB Paul Mencke Jr. (6'2" 180lbs)

Mencke Jr. is another track star who is going to play safety for the Huskies because he has very good run/pass recognition on top of having the elite speed and willingness to come downhill in run support. He is also able to lock up one-on-one with slot receivers and shut them down thanks to his ability to be patient in his backpedal on top of having very good size.

3-star WR Jason Robinson (5'11" 160lbs)

Robinson is the type of receiver who can make an instant impact because he is an excellent route runner who can drop his hips in an instant to get in and out of breaks while also having an excellent feel for the soft spots versus zone coverage which allows him to be an open outlet for the quarterback.

Stay tuned for part two where we are going to provide scouting reports on the eight remaining Washington football class of 2024 signees.
