Rising Stars Camp Preview: Offense

Here's a look at some of the top anticipated offensive participants, including 2017 Juanita (Kirkland, Wa.) ATH Salvon Ahmed (pictured) at this weekend's Rising Stars Camp at Montlake...

The Huskies are still looking for a signal-caller to add to the 2016 class and Herbert is a guy they have been giving a long look to this offseason. The reason Herbert has one offer currently, Northern Arizona, but had he not broken his leg in the third game of last season, he likely would have a handful of FBS offers. This camp could go a long way in helping his cause with the Dawgs.

Many think Rogers' best position will be either on the defensive side of the ball or at receiver. However, he wants to give quarterback a shot. Rogers is a really good leader and he can make plays with his arm and legs. Washington State has offered, but with good performances at camps this summer, Rogers could have several options as we head into the season.

Neville is a kid we've been watching since the seventh grade. He's smart, he's accurate and he can really spin it. Currently, the Huskies are one of Neville's favorites, but since he's a 2017 signal-caller, it will be a while until that means much.

Other Top Quarterbacks Expected include...

Issaquah (Wa.) QB Camron Humphrey (2016)
Waxahachie (Tx.) QB Jordan Kitna (2016)
San Clemente (Ca.) QB Jack Sears (2017)
Santa Margarita Catholic (Ca.) QB Richard Wagner (2017)

Ahmed, one of the top 217 prospects in the state, has been one of the top playmakers the state the past couple of years. He's already got a handful of offers to choose from and this spring he's been hitting the 7v7 and individual camp circuit. This is his chance to really show the Husky coaches what he can do with the ball in his hands.

Wedington is another big-time 2017 "skill" position prospects from the state of Washington. He can play corner, safety, running back and receiver and that's exactly what he does for his team. The Sumner coaches have really worked in many different ways to get the ball into Wedington's hands and he should put up some big numbers this fall.

Other Top Skill Players Expected include...

Salesian (Los Angeles, Ca.) ATH Urael Blackshear (2017)
Salesian (Los Angeles, Ca.) WR Rahyme Johnson (2017)
Kahuku (Hi.) RB Kesi Ah-Hoy (2017)
Wilsonville (Or.) WR Johnny Neville (2017)
Pullman (Wa.) TE Ben Moos (2017)
Kamiak (Mukilteo, Wa.) TE Nate Shubert (2016)

The 2017 Skyline prospect was originally scheduled to attend the first Rising Stars camp back on June 5th, however a family commitment forced him to come to this week's camp instead. Bainivalu's stock is skyrocketing right now with offers rolling in from schools across the region and country. He's in the top five linemen within the state, regardless of class, and he's proving to be one of the most highly recruited as well.

Powell, a 2017 prospect, has emerged this spring as a big time recruit, impressing at pretty much every camp he's attended. With his big frame, Powell could be a great fit at tackle and he's already garnered an offer from Washington State and several other Pac 12 schools could pull the trigger this summer.
