I think Ethan Garbers and Mark Redman will be taking their OVs this weekend. Pretty uninspiring overall. Hopefully we can add someone to the list.
“Uninspiring” is a weird way to look at it. There are only two, maybe three scholarship targets left on the board and one of them, Jack Yary, already officially visited.
Princely Umanmeilan is officially visiting Florida on the 24th but will still have one OV left. He has eliminated Baylor due to Matt Rhule’s departure. He’s a Texas decommit but recently unofficially visited Texas so they’re trying to mend that relationship and get him back in the boat. Princely has “liked” stuff on Twitter to suggest he’s officially visiting UW. Did Florida beat UW out for the OV on the 24th or does he have a secret OV to UW planned after that for his fifth and final OV. Or is he just one of those kids that likes to tease fans on social media and give them false hope and we have absolutely no chance at all. We’ll see.
Yary would be a huge get. Both he and Redman have the talent to be Day 1 contributors.
Togiai would be a good get. Huge body and he’s athletic. More of a project guy with big-time upside which we can afford to take because of the D-line class they brought in before him. Utah has lived off of getting guys like this. He could end up being a total steal three years from now.
Umanmeilan would be the big splash guy everybody wants to finish with but that’s a long shot. Good thing we already got a bunch of splash guys who signed early.
Sub K was single handedly trying to push Princely to UW but I’m not sure if there’s really any actual interest from either side. That would be a major coup if he comes here but I’m not getting my hopes up. I wish we waited til this week to bring in Yary instead of last month. He’s visiting USC this weekend and ASU next week. Hopefully Lake, Donovan, and Cato can reel him in after their in home.
I think Yary is in the bag. His most recent interview from the Poly bowl made it pretty obvious he’s bought into UW’s TE utilization and NFL development, something USC and ASU can’t sell. Those just look like courtesy visits at this point.
