Prospect of the Week
Sumner (Wash.) athlete Connor Wedington is the early leader in the clubhouse for state player of the year in Washington. The four-star Washington commit has been dynamic through the first two weeks of the season, helping the Spartans, one of the top-ranked teams in Washington, to a 2-0 start. Wedington had two rushing touchdowns and a punt return for a touchdown in the win over South Kitsap (Wash.) and also had big news off the field. Stanford came to watch Wedington and the Cardinal offered, though he remains solid to the Huskies, but it continues to highlight his rise since the spring.
Visit of the Week
Two weeks after hosting the No. 1 offensive tackle in the country, Nebraska will host the nation's No. 1 receiver in Los Angeles (Calif.) Hawkins five-star Joseph Lewis. Lewis is part of a California contingent headed to Lincoln this weekend when the Huskers host Oregon but he may be their most important visitor of the year, since the Huskers have been doing well with him for months and would love nothing more than to wow him again.
Prospect On the Rise
Corona (Calif.) Centennial running back Miles Reed has to patiently wait his turn behind Arizona freshman J.J. Taylor last fall, but like so many Huskies before him, who've had to wait for stellar upperclassmen to graduate, Reed hasn't wasted any time in making an impact in the Husky offense. Through three games, Reed has rushed for 543 yards and six touchdowns, including 302 in the opener against Chandler (Ariz.) and 179 and three touchdowns against Bradenton (Fla.) IMG Academy and is starting to land a few more offers in the meantime.
Underclassmen of the Week
Portland (Ore.) Jesuit 2018 receiver Trey Lowe had a Holy War to remember in Jesuits rout of archrival Portland (Ore.) Central Catholic. The Scout 300 for 2018 prospect rushed for 337 yards and six touchdowns, including a 59-yarder, an 84-yarder and a 92-yarder to help the defending state champs roll the Rams. Lowe already has offers from the in-state schools, Oregon, where his brother, Keanon, played on a couple of Pac-12 championship squads as well as Oregon State and figures to land quite a few more.
Kirkland (Wash.) Jesuit athlete Salvon Ahmed has set his announcement date of next Friday, September 23rd, and he'll choose between five schools: Notre Dame, where he'll officially visit this weekend, Oregon, Stanford, USC and hometown Washington. Ahmed has unofficially visited the four Pac-12 schools but has yet to visit Notre Dame, so after the trip, he'll have seen all five of his finalists. The Huskies are still the favorite to keep the in-state four-star local.null
