According to the 2014 - 2015 Recruiting Calendar for Bowl Subdivision teams, the so-called recruiting 'Dead Period' will end this coming Sunday, July 12th.
A 'Dead Period' means that schools can call and have electronic communication with the prospects, however, there are no unofficial visits/face-to-face contact or evaluations during this time.
As of July 13th, a 'Quiet Period' begins and goes all the way through July 31st.
During that time, coaches can have in-person contact on campus and they can continue to talk with them on the phone or through electronic communications.
As of August 1st, the 2015 - 2016 Recruiting Calendar kicks into gear and from that date through November 28th it is a 'Quiet Period' except for 42 evaluation days (spread among the nine coaches on each staff) from September 1st to November 28th. This is considered to be an 'Evaluation Period'.
While the coaches are allowed to make visits to high schools to meet with coaches and watch games, they are not allowed to meet with the prospects although the NCAA has allotted the 'Bump Rule' where coaches may say hello to the player.
From November 29th to January 30th of 2016, a 'Contact Period' begins where the coaches are permitted six in-person, off-campus contacts per PSA (prospective student athlete). The coaches cannot make more than one contact within a calendar week, so basically, you have the ability to meet with a recruit once a week during this period.
During the 'Contact Period' there is a 'Dead Period' from December 14th through January 13th where coaches are not allowed on the road. One of the big reasons is because it is the holiday period, however, this also allows PSAs to participate in the ever-growing number of All-Star games while the coaches spend time at a national coaches convention held the weekend after all of the All-Star games are completed.
Signing Day is the first Wednesday of February and in 2016, that falls on February 3rd.
The Huskies have continued to make offers to prospects from both the 2016 and 2017 classes.
A lot of those offers came about after the May evaluation period where the coaches got a closer look at some prospects they still hadn't offered.
Some that have received offers in recent weeks include...
CB Michael Nesbitt (2017)
ATH (WR) DeVaughn Cooper (2016)
DE Bronson Massie (2016)
DE Pookie Maka (2016)
WR Chris Taylor-Yamanoha (2016)
WR Khris Vaughn (2016)
QB Armani Rogers (2016)
QB Ryan Kelley (2017)
TE Taariq Johnson (2017)
DT Jay Tufele (2017)
DE Jaelan Phillips (2017)
One of the top prospects on Washington's 2016 wish list, Bishop O'Dowd (Oakland, Ca.) LB Camilo Eifler, has noted that he plans to make a commitment at The Opening this week and the Huskies are considered the favorite among schools like California, Texas A&M, Oregon and UCLA that have also offered.
Other prospects who are planning to visit Montlake over the next few weeks include the top offensive lineman on the Husky board, Kaiser (Honolulu, Hi.) OG Michael Eletise and Rogers, a commit to Cal, who was recently offered by the Dawgs.
The incoming freshman class began the LEAP program last week and they will continue with that for the next three weeks before the start of fall camp.
Over the weekend, the football players in the LEAP program took a trip to check out the Fremont Troll.

The players also are spending time working with the Strength and Conditioning staff led by Tim Socha.
Morning sprints/conditioning as well as weight room work and nutrition classes are on the agenda on a daily/weekly basis.
There are also player-led passing sessions taking place. Those are typically led by the upper-classmen and quarterbacks. In this case, Jeff Lindquist and K.J. Carta-Samuels and Jaydon Mickens are the ring leaders.
Most of the non-true freshman players are taking summer classes to either get ahead or stay on track with their credits, but there are a few that choose to take the summer off in order to take part in mission work with their churches or summer internships.
Word we are getting is that fall camp will likely begin sometime around August 6th with three full weeks of camp and then they head into game week on August 31st before they travel to Boise State for their game on Friday, September 4th.
