Last week I wrote an article where I dove into the film and provided scouting reports on the top eight signees in the Washington Huskies 2024 recruiting class based on how the players were ranked by 247sports.

In part 1, I provided a good snapshot of what to know about the skills of the top eight players the Huskies are bringing into their program out of high school.

This week we will share the analysis of the final eight players in the Huskies' 38th nationally-ranked recruiting class, to give the fans a brief snapshot of talents and skills that made the recruits coveted by the Huskies.

Scouting every Washington football Class of 2024 Signee: Part 2

3-star LB Khmori House (6'1" 205lb)

The linebacker out of California powerhouse St. John Bosco was originally recruited and signed by the old coaching staff but opted to stay once Jedd Fisch took over. House is a fast and instinctive linebacker who is excellent against the run while also being a tremendous blitzer thanks to his quick acceleration ability. He is also able to go sideline-to-sideline rather quickly, which is a must for modern defenses.

3-star TE Decker DeGraaf (6'4" 230lb)

Decker DeGraff is an athletic, receiver-first tight end who loves to block offensive linemen. Despite not having the ideal size to make a difference when run blocking, DeGraff possesses high-end competitiveness which leads to a projection that he will be putting the work in the weight room to get bigger and improve his ability to run block to complement his abilities as a receiver.

3-star CB Rahim Wright (6'0" 175lb)

Rahim Wright is still somewhat new to the corner position as he started his high school career as a quarterback because he was the best athlete on the team. Wright has elite speed that pops on tape whenever he comes downhill from deep zone coverage or in run support. Wright doesn't have the best backpedal mechanics as he is often too high when backpedaling which hinders his ability to play consistent tight man coverage which is why I could see him make the switch to safety at Washington.

3-star CB Elias Johnson (6'3" 160lb)

Elias Johnson is a raw highly projectable corner prospect who is going will need to put on muscle when he gets to Washington. Johnson has all of the raw physical tools to stick at the corner position as he is tall and he has long arms which is a huge asset for any defender who plays man coverage on top of having great instincts for a corner. Johnson's biggest weakness is his athleticism as he isn't the quickest or the strongest player but those can be improved upon in the weight room.

3-star OT Davit Boyajyan (6'6" 305lb)

Davit Boyajyan is another player who will need some physical development in the weight room before he sees the field for the Huskies. Despite needing to put on weight so that he can stick at offensive tackle, Boyajyan is very good as a pure run blocker as he would classify as a mauler as opposed to a technician. His standout ability is the ability to be agile and nimble in space as a lead blocker on screens or being able to pull on toss plays.

3-star OT Justin Hylkema (6'8" 315lb)

Players who are built like Justin Hylkema don't come around that often, he has a rare physical profile even for an offensive lineman. Hylkema possesses great length due to his six-foot-eight frame which in turn allows him to stymie rushing defensive linemen quite quickly. He does need some refinement in his ability to move in space if he is going to become a starting tackle for the Huskies.

3-star DL Omar Khan (6'3" 270lb)

Omar Khan has a good chance of being able to get on the field as a true freshman for the Huskies. Khan can play at both the 1-technique and 3-technique spots on the interior defensive line because he is exceptionally strong which will allow him to plug gaps in the run game. He also possesses a good package of hand moves that will allow him to occasionally beat offensive linemen clean to get into the backfield and stop the play.

3-star RB Adam Mohammed (6'0" 180lb)

The only running back signed from the class of 2024 for the Huskies, Adam Mohammed is a fast and dynamic athlete who has loads of potential. Mohammed has a great first-step burst and quickness that allows him to get to the second level in an instant. He is exceptional at being able to change gears at a moment's notice to blow right by defenders. He doesn't have the speed to take the ball for 60 yards for a touchdown but he will have a bunch of thirty and forty-yard runs because of his acceleration ability.
