  • Bru McCoy visiting UW this coming weekend.

    Is there a point at which the USC season completely falls apart that they start worrying about the guys everyone assumes/knows will sign for them?

    For me it's the first Wednesday in February that I relax. Nobody really knows what a high school kid is "going" to do.

    Truer words were never spoken but I do think USC in particular has a lot riding on a season that seems to be imploding. With all those great athletes however, I never count them out.

    To a lesser extent Oregon also has a lot riding on this season. They have a coach whom has a less than stellar resume and if he doesn't show he is able to produce, their highly rated class will be looking for less greener (purple) pastures, lol.

    Legit 5-star, Brock Huard said he was the best passing HS QB he had ever seen. He started as a true freshman, has had 2 yrs to season. USC and Oregon have no QB's to compare to UW's stable. He will be an NFL 1st rounder.

    I call BS: "It’s no secret that Georgia’s offensive line struggled often last season. At many times, Eason found himself smothered by the opposing defense.There were times when Eason looked flustered while under pressure, but on a few occasions, he showed some nice poise and pocket awareness."

    Lots of national guys predicted he'd end up at Notre Dame as recently as last week, so this was a pleasant surprise.

    Bit raw, but good size at 6'4 225 and should be a good pass rusher prospect.

    I hope so, because UW's pass rush is anemic this year.

  • Sounds like the Ducks made quite an impression on Kayvon Thibedeoux, the number 1 overall player in the country, who was on an official this weekend. He tweeted out that this was the best game he's ever been to, and that he's going to be moving his commitment date up. Sounds like if it ended right now, he'd be a duck. Still a long way to go though, so I wont hold my breath.

  • I am really surprised that Oregon is getting these players. Why? They haven't done anything in years and the only time they did was when USC was under sanctions.

    They keep saying that Cristobal is a great recruiter but his coaching record is not good so what is he offering?

    Very recently it has been testified in court that Oregon is offering money to get recruits to play at Oregon. Are these kids being led down the path to being committed to a sanctioned school?

  • Calvert is another WTF moment for Chip.

    His brother is a Bruin, he lives 15 minutes from campus, UCLA needs a really big class as they're something like 10 short of the scholarship limit, and they've just completely ignored the kid. It's fine to be selective as a recruiter, but all indications are that UCLA is just not really participating at all.

    I really don't understand why Chip came back to coach in college if his heart just wasn't in it.

    Lol, I won't J.

    I think you're a good guy J but you support an unethical program and you have said many times before that you couldn't care less if Phil Knight's money was the reason behind Oregon's success.

    I don't feel any different about Oregon than i do any other unethical program/person. Way back when Tricky Ricky Neuheisel started playing games with recruiting at UDub I was the first one on Husky boards to criticize, something I was roundly ostracized for.

    The end does NOT justify the means, the process is every bit as important as the result.

    Our entire society needs to exhibit those values.

  • DomeHawk wrote:Ducks have been trying to lure Yankoff ever since he decommitted from them. Another source of possible sanctions.

    The reasoning around Husky circles is that he should wait until 2020 because it is somewhat of a given that Jacob Eason will get the nod next year and be one-and-done to the NFL. The thinking is that if he doesn't win the starting job over Jacob Sirmon the next year he will transfer. Sirmon won't transfer if he loses the starting job. This is all speculation though and can be largely attributed to wishful thinking on J's part.


    Eason could easily be the next Jake heaps though. Has all the measurements, rocket arm etc but a lot will depend on how he plays. Yankoff and Haener will give him some tough competition.

    Eason has been described by some very knowledgeable people as one of the best passers they have ever seen. https://twitter.com/brockespn/status/951896578075213824

    I don't see Haener in the final competition even though he has his fans. For my money he is another, smaller even, Jake Browning. Jacob Eason is 6'6", The other 'Jacob," Sirmon, is 6'5", and Colson Yankoff is 6'4". Each one is physically imposing, unless Haener does something really spectacular I think he will fade.

    Wrong, but nice duck-type try, the Markele Fultz thing had NOTHING to do with UW and that has already been proven.

    I'm hearing rumors about another wave of de-commits from Oregon coming before signing day.

    Mario Cristobal has been shown to be the fraud that I predicted he would be. The duck nation has already turned on him.

  • Ducks have some serious momentum going with the #1 overall player in the country Kayvon Thibedeaux. The last several "expert" picks on the 247 network have all been for Oregon. From Brandon Huffman and Greg Biggins, the 2 leading west coast recruiting gurus:

    "I had stuck with Florida State for some time, largely because the Seminoles seemed like the most likely destination and when I visited with Thibodeaux at his school in late August and watched him play in the season opener, the Noles were who he raved about and his visit there was shortly after. Fast forward a couple months, and much of the buzz following the Oregon visit was about the Ducks. But then the glow didn't fade (as it often does after official visits). Talking with sources at Oaks Christian and close to Thibodeaux, the Ducks are still very much a prominent factor in his recruitment and the glow from the trip hasn't waned. As it gets closer to his decision, the 'Noles still stand in a good spot but much of the feeling is that Oregon will end up landing Thibodeaux. Its close to home, but not too close, he'll be able to play right away and that's not even taking in to account his desire to go into sports broadcasting following his career, and several Oregon alums are in the media now. All of those factors pushed me to make the switch in the Crystal Ball over the weekend." Brandon Huffman, 247Sports

    "Although my crystal ball forecast is still on Florida State, I'm very close to moving it over to Oregon. The Ducks made a huge move following their official visit last month but the thought was, once the post-visit buzz wore off, Oregon would fade a bit. The buzz is gone but Oregon is still high on his list for several reasons. His relationship with the Ducks coaching staff is extremely strong. Thibodeaux has known Keith Heyward since middle school, is close with Donte Williams, Cort Dennison and Marcus Arroyo and loves DL coach Joe Salave'a. Early on, the feeling was Alabama and Florida State had the bigger name and brand that Thibodeaux was looking for and would create a bigger stage for him to shine on. We have heard that's no longer an issue and Thibodeaux feels wherever he goes, he'll bring the buzz with him. Thibodeaux is confident he can step in and play early no matter where he goes but could have an immediate impact at Oregon and start from day one. He's also excited by the incoming recruiting class Oregon is bringing in and feels the program has a chance to win at a high level in the coming years." Greg Biggins, 247Sports

  • JSeahawks wrote:Ducks have some serious momentum going with the #1 overall player in the country Kayvon Thibedeaux. The last several "expert" picks on the 247 network have all been for Oregon. From Brandon Huffman and Greg Biggins, the 2 leading west coast recruiting gurus:

    "I had stuck with Florida State for some time, largely because the Seminoles seemed like the most likely destination and when I visited with Thibodeaux at his school in late August and watched him play in the season opener, the Noles were who he raved about and his visit there was shortly after. Fast forward a couple months, and much of the buzz following the Oregon visit was about the Ducks. But then the glow didn't fade (as it often does after official visits). Talking with sources at Oaks Christian and close to Thibodeaux, the Ducks are still very much a prominent factor in his recruitment and the glow from the trip hasn't waned. As it gets closer to his decision, the 'Noles still stand in a good spot but much of the feeling is that Oregon will end up landing Thibodeaux. Its close to home, but not too close, he'll be able to play right away and that's not even taking in to account his desire to go into sports broadcasting following his career, and several Oregon alums are in the media now.

    The NCAA has alleged that Oregon's track and field, football and women's and men's basketball programs have committed significant breaches of conduct. Will Phil Knight be able to buy his way out again? What happens to these recruits when the program is finally given significant sanctions?

  • The recruiting threads from previous years were a lot more interesting and useful when they were just about recruits and potential recruits instead of the nonsense that keeps being added here.

    Improprieties in recruiting is an essential part of the recruiting process and is being discussed on multiple recruiting forums. If you have a personal problem with me take it to the shack, personal attacks are in violation of the rules.

  • "Recruiting Roundup: Huskies Headed Down the Home Stretch"

    A class full of OKG's and look for the Dogs of Montlake to add a few more before the deadline. We will also be adding a 5-star quarterback in Jacob Eason and bringing back 1st-round pro prospect Trey Adams.

  • Defensive tackle Faatui Tuitele, a top-100 national recruit out of St. Louis High in Honolulu, announced his commitment to the Washington Huskies on Sunday night, choosing UW over Alabama, Clemson, Ohio State and Texas, his other finalists.

    Tuitele, 6-feet-4 and 299 pounds, is rated as Hawaii’s No. 1 recruit and the No. 68 overall recruit in the 2019 class by 247sports.com.

    ESPN rates Tuitele as the No. 40 recruit in the Class of 2019. He reportedly had 39 scholarship offers in all and a 4.0 grade-point average.

    Tuitele’s commitment is another victory for the Huskies’ recruiting efforts in Hawaii, led by defensive line coach Ikaika Malloe, a Hawaii native.

    Of the 19 recruits committed in UW’s 2019 class, Tuitele is the fifth from Hawaii — joining fellow Honolulu defensive tackle Sama Pa’ama (Kaimuki HS); offensive lineman Julius Buelow (Kapolei HS); outside linebacker Miki Ah You (Kahuku HS); and kicker Timothy Horn (Punahou HS).

    There have already been a couple:

    Cridell decommited and is likely going to Oklahoma. This one doesnt really bother me, we're good at his position both now and in the future.
    Casey decommited to stay closer to home and is going to Louisville. This one hurt because its at a position of need, but he can be replaced.

    There's probably two more decommitments coming:

    Sounds like Masa Funa is going to flip to USC. This one would hurt big time, not gonna lie. But its USC, happens every year.
    Joey Capra is probably decommiting and his brother who is already on the team is likely transferring (I would consider this great news because they'd both just be buried on the depth chart and wasting scholarships.

    Decommits always suck, but it just means there's more room to add other guys. I'll just be happy with the 25-28 that we end up with on signing day. The guys we really can't afford to lose are the WR's. Thats the one position where we need immediate help next season and we have a great class coming in.

    I'm hoping there are 6 or 7 guys on the bottom of the roster who decide to leave too. Clear up some scholarships from dead wood.
