Texas WR Likes What He's Hearing From UW

Washington is definitely in the market for some explosive wideouts in the 2016 recruiting class and one that they have in their sights is Plano (Tx.) East WR Adewale Omotosho. The Huskies are one of the talented receiver 20 offers and he told Dawgman.com recently that he likes what he's been hearing from the Dawgs...



"Coach (Brent) Pease was down here today watching me workout," Omotosho told Dawgman.com. "We've actually been talking for over two months now and I really like him and what he's been telling me about Washington.

"I don't know a lot about (UW) right now, but I am learning more all the time and I'm still doing my research on them and some of the other schools that have offered me."

Washington is one the 20 schools that have offered the explosive wideout who is considered one of the more underrated players in the Lonestar State due to the fact that his team went 1-9 last season and they were a run-heavy team.

What has drawn the Huskies, and likely every other coaching staff, to Omotosho is the fact that the senior-to-be combines an impressive frame (6-2, 190) with the type of elite athleticism that allowed him to post a 39-inch vertical and an 11-foot broad jump during spring workouts.

“He’s going to overmatch a lot of guys on the field, but the cool thing about him is he’s looking beyond next season,” Plano East receivers coach David Jones told Bill Embody of Scout.com recently. “He’s starting to understand that when you get to the next level, everybody is going to be just as talented. You see it in the little things. He’s in and out of his breaks. He can probably one hand everything that’s thrown to him, but I’m always telling him to get two hands on the ball, looking it in and ball security.”

As far as travel plans are concerned, Omotosho said he's hoping to get up to Seattle, but he hasn't firmed up anything at this point.

"I'm still sorta working out my schedule with my mom right now," Omotosho said. "It's expensive, so we just have to look at the costs and if we can make it happen. I definitely want to get up there though. It sounds great and I like what I have heard about it so far."

While Omotosho said he's not planning to decide until after his senior season, he did say he has thought about what matters to him most when he's ready to make his commitment.

"First it's the education and my major," Omotosho noted. "I want to major in Business Marketing, so I'll be looking at that a lot.

"The next thing would be the opportunity to play and I have dreams to go to the NFL, so I want to see how good they are at producing guys that are ready to go to the NFL.

"The last thing would be the coaches and my teammates. Does it have that 'family feel'? How do they treat each other? Stuff like that."

We'll continue to keep tabs on Omotosho and update news on him as it happens.
