Dynasty Log: Huskies Recruiting Year 1
Erik Britt leads a strong recruiting class for the Washington Huskies in the offseason as the Huskies pulled a recruiting class and return most of their team to reach #30 in preseason polls.
Britt is a 5-star cornerback from Pullman, and along with Josh Smith, Center, Matt Hall, WR, Brett Curtis, WR, and Brian Williams, QB strengthen a young and blossoming UW roster.
Overall the Dawgs brought in one 5-star recruit, four 4-star recruits, and 8 3-star recruits into the squad and ranked #25 overall in the nation for the class.
The WR corp was completely revamped with 4 highly touted receivers to go with returning starter John Ross and slot receiver Dante Pettis and others. Two, including Matt Hall, were redshirted, while Curtis takes over the starting Z receiver spot.
Another position of interest is the QB spot, where true freshman Jake Browning had a solid season going until injury set him back. Jeff Lindquist took over and kept the Huskies a float and started in the Bowl victory over BYU. Both, along KJ Carta-Samuels return, allowing top recruit Brian Williams to redshirt this year despite being even more highly touted than Fulsom High star Jake Browning.
Kevin King moves from CB to starting safety role following the departure of All Pac-10 2nd team Brian Clay.
Several players had their scholarships removed including Chico McClatcher and Marvin Hall.
Nationally, Deshaun Watson and Royce Freeman lead the Heisman trophy race, while Ohio State, despite losing several starters to the draft take the top spot in preseason polls.
