Washington Huskies Recruiting Round-Up

Recent Commits
Dwayne Washington, WR, 6-1/195 (NR): familiarity with college football route running was a huge plus; also possess great speed.
Nathan Dean, OT, 6-5/270 (***): his work ethic, size, and athleticism drew many suitors; needs to add a little bulk.  
Damontae Kazee, CB, 5-11/170 (NR): good speed with excellent closing skills; also impressive on kickoff returns.
Malcolm Jackson, DL, 6-3/255 (NR): has the perfect frame to excel at the collegiate level;
Trending on the Trail
Blake Rodgers, ILB, 6-2/220 (NR):  the Huskies are apparently Rodgers favorite so far; he is expected to make a decision in a month. 
Darreus Rogers, WR, 6-2/194 (****): despite being a verbal commitment to USC, Rogers might not be 100% sold on Trojans. ASU and Washington are still in the mix

Top Commits for 2012
·         Jeff Lindquist, QB, 6-3/225 (****): posses superb field vision with keen pocket awareness; ball handling skills needs slight improvement.   
·         Tairen Owens, RB, 5-9/165 (***): was recruited for his explosiveness and breakaway speed; size could be an issue.  
·         Cyler Miles, QB, 6-2/220 (***): this was a small surprise considering the Huskies already have a four star commit for 2012; Miles definitely brings more speed to the position.
