This class without JT and Emeka is anything but elite. In fact it would be a failure.
I consider a top-10 class elite and that will happen with or without those guys. Let’s not prentend getting the best WR out of California or the best player out of the state of Arizona isn’t elite recruiting. At the end of the day, these coaches can recruit their asses off and still not have it make a difference with some kids. Some kids just think they’re too good for UW and want to jump on a bandwagon at a recent national championship winner and there might not be anything our coaches can do about it. I expect a top-10 class. I don’t care where the recruits come from to accomplish that. If a couple in-state guys don’t want to be a part of what UW has going on that’s their decision. Doesn’t mean this class will be a failure. That’s disrespectful to the quality talent that will decide to come here in the next nine months.
Washington isn’t landing a top ten class without JT and Emeka.
