WSU recruiting: 4 in-staters on ’17 Scout 300

SCOUT.COM HAS released their first Top 300 for the 2017 recruiting class. Four prospects from the state of Washington made the list. These are juniors-to-be, so you can expect changes over the nearly two years before Signing Day 2017. But it's also worth noting Washington State is the only Pac-12 team to have already offered all four.

OT Foster Sarell (6-6, 300) out of Graham is ranked five stars and the top offensive tackle prospect in the West, and the No. 2 offensive tackle in the nation. The Graham-Kapowsin High product wears a size 18 shoe.

ATH Salvon Ahmed (5-11, 182) out of Kirkland’s Juanita High is ranked the No. 2 ATH out West and No. 8 nationally. He lined up at running back, inside and outside wide receiver, corner and safety this past season.

OG Henry Bainivalu (6-6, 302) out of Sammamish’s Skyline High is the No. 4 offensive guard prospect nationally and No. 3 in the West.

OT Dontae Powell (6-6, 300, pictured above) out of Richland is the No. 6 o-tackle prospect in the West and No. 32 nationally. He also excels at d-tackle for Richland High but he’ll play on the offensive line at the next level.

Other early names in the ’17 state class include a trio of three-star ranked prospects: Sumner RB Connor Wedington, Kamiakin CB Darreon Moore and Sammamish ATH Hunter Bryant.

The Evergreen State is flush with top-end OL talent for 2017, but what about the depth, with fewer overall Washingtonians making the list? In the 2015 and 2016 classes, there were six juniors-to-be from the state of Washington named to the first Top 300.
