Camp Season Gets Underway

If you break up each recruiting cycle into different sections, the next part begins this week as camp "season" gets underway and the Huskies will take part in nearly a dozen over the next 30 days...

The Husky coaches will be in attendance at several camps and they will host a handful as well.

The coaches will attend the Northwest Elite Camp which will be held up at Lynnwood High School this coming Friday (June 5th).

The following day, Washington will host the first of it's two Rising Stars Camp at Husky Stadium.

The weekend wraps up with a kicking camp at UW on Sunday June 7th.

The second week of June will see the Husky coaches taking part in a handful of camps in California -- Golden West on June 10th, University of Redlands on June 11th, Cal Lutheran University on June 12th and Laney College on June 13th.

Last year, the coaches took part in the All-Poly Camp in Utah and that looks to be the case again. The All-Poly camp will be a full-gear (padded) camp on June 16th and 17th at Layton (Ut.) High School and then will move to Clearfield (Ut.) High School for two more days of work.

That weekend will see the Husky coaches hosting the second Rising Stars camp on June 20th and then things will wrap up on Sunday, June 21st, with the Husky Passing Camp which is a 7-on-7 event that had over 25 high school teams sign up last summer.

These camps are invaluable during the evaluation process of recruits.

Several prospects got offers during June last fall, including future Huskies Austin Joyner (as a defensive back) and Mike Neal.

It allows the Husky coaches to work with the players, view their athleticism and coachability, while allowing the prospects to get a look at the facilities (if they attend the Rising Stars camps) as well as meeting with the coaches and getting a feel for how they coach as well.

Washington currently sits at four commits for the 2016 Recruiting Class - Sehome (Bellingham, Wa.) S Taylor Rapp, Eastside Catholic (Sammamish, Wa.) ATH Brandon Wellington, JSerra Catholic (San Juan Capistrano, Ca.) OL Luke Wattenberg and St. John Bosco (Bellflower, Ca.) RB Sean McGrew.

With only about 17 spots available in the class, the Husky coaches can be picky about who they take, at least this early in the process, so don't expect a huge number of players to commit, but there will likely be at least a few before the end of the month. Top Stories
