Lakes (Lakewood, Wa.) DL Benning Potoae - The Huskies and UCLA appear to be the final two for Potoae although there are some rumors that Oregon might be trying to get back into things. Potoae plans to visit Montlake this weekend and then, as long as he sticks to his timeline, he plans to host at least two head coaches (Jim Mora and Chris Petersen) over the next few days before he announces his decision. Most think that he's a slight to heavy lean to UCLA, but Washington gets the last official visit and they will likely get the final in-home visit as well.
Wenatchee (Wa.) OT Trey Adams - Adams has been committed to the Huskies since the summer before his junior year and he hasn't wavered one bit. Schools like USC, UCLA and Oregon have tried to sway him, but he's been rock solid. He'll definitely be counted on to be a recruiter this weekend while he's on campus.
Roosevelt (Fresno, Ca.) DT Ricky McCoy - McCoy was committed to Arizona for the better part of a year, but made the switch to Washington about a month ago. McCoy has an infectious personality, he reminds me a lot of Elijah Qualls during his recruitment, and, like Adams and the other commits, he will be a huge help in working on the uncommitted players, especially Potoae.
Sacred Heart Prep (Atherton, Ca.) LB Ben Burr-Kirven - When you talk about "under the radar" recruits, Burr-Kirven fits that description perfectly. The instinctive linebacker prospect basically came onto the radar the day he committed to Washington. He's not very big right now, measuring in at a little over 6'0 tall and weighing 200 pounds, but he's physical for his size and he just dominated the "small school" competition he went up against on a weekly basis the past couple of years. Burr-Kirven is set to play linebacker once he arrives at Washington and he will likely play outside.
Kamehameha (Honolulu, Hi.) DE/LB Mika Tafua - It's been a couple of years since Washington went to the Islands and pulled in a prized recruit like Tafua -- the only other Hawaii prospects on the roster are Shane Brostek and Psalm Wooching. Tafua has been committed to BYU for a while and is still considered a soft-verbal, but he's giving Washington a long look and, with the way Washington closes kids after their visits, they have a great chance to get him to flip.
Westlake (Westlake Village, Ca.) WR Andre Baccellia - Baccellia missed most of his senior season while recovering from an injury, but when he played he put up some good numbers. Washington fell in love with his game during the summer and secured his commitment back in August. Baccellia fits the "OKG" mold in that he's a self-starter, he's a "gym rat" and he's a hard worker. At his size, he'll be a slot receiver for the Huskies, replacing Jaydon Mickens in the lineup once his eligibility is exhausted after the 2015 football season.
