Pac-12Over the past numerous yrs, some of the most hugely touted QB recruits from the West (particularly, the State of California) have gone somewhere else to participate in their faculty football.

Jayden Rashada joins Bryce Young, CJ Stroud, and DJ Uiagalalei as elite sign-caller prospective buyers who are not actively playing in the Pac-12 conference.

The convention was hoping that the presence of USC with Lincoln Riley and maybe Chip Kelly’s achievement creating DTR can do the job to reverse that trend (and do have two yrs they in it).

On this episode of Locked On Pac-12, I’m joined by John Garcia Jr., director of recruiting for Athletics Illustrated.

Rashada going to Miami in the ACC is a done offer, but two Pac-12 colleges have a prospect to hold a huge-time recruit on the west coastline in 5-star EDGE prospect Matayo Uiagalalei.

USC and Oregon the two have actual likelihood at the more youthful brother of Clemson’s quarterback, and he is the type of player that the Pac-12 has to be in a position to hold on the west coastline if they’re heading to contend nationally.

Washington Football entered the month of June with four verbal commitments for the class of 2023.

Now at the close of the month, they’re up to 16, and they’ve shot up the countrywide recruiting rankings into the leading 20 which includes a modern QB commit.

New HC Kalen DeBoer has a tall task ahead of him, but these early recruiting returns are very encouraging for Husky fans.
