Washington is currently one of three suitors to offer 2017 Berean Christian (Walnut Creek, CA) WR Isaiah Hodgins

2017 Berean Christian (Walnut Creek, CA) WR Isaiah Hodgins is one of the early targets for Washington at the wideout position and he updated Dawgman.com recently on where things stand on the recruiting front...

"I currently have three offers - Washington, Oregon State and San Jose State, but I am hopeful that I will have a couple more within the next week or two," Hodgins told Dawgman.com over the weekend. "The other schools talking to me the most and the ones that seem like they could be close to offering are Boise State, Hawaii and Oregon."

Washington was one of the first schools to offer the talented wideout, extending a full-ride his way when he took an unofficial visit to Montlake back in November when the Huskies played host to Utah.

"I went up there for a visit at the end of my football season and I love it," Hodgins said. "I love the campus and the coaches and the facilities are amazing.

"I like the way they do things there.

"I also loved the (gameday) atmosphere and the fanbase."

The coaches that were running point early on for Hodgins were offensive line coach Chris Strausser and then-receivers coach Brent Pease, but since the end of the season, Hodgins has been mainly talking with head coach Chris Petersen and he's currently getting to know new receivers coach Bush Hamdan.

"I haven't met coach Hamdan yet, but I've talked to him a little bit and I am hoping to meet him soon," Hodgins noted. "Coach Petersen is the main one I have been talking to. He said he likes how I play the game and he likes my size and my productivity."

As a junior this past season, Hodgins finished with 94 receptions for 1,483 yards and 23 touchdowns. He also had six other touchdowns -- one as a runner, two as a return man and three on defense -- while posting close to 40 tackles and a team-leading six interceptions on defense.

"I consider myself a big receiver -- physical, but still with speed," the 6'4", 197-pounder said when asked what type of receiver he is. "I can get down the field pretty well, but I am at my best with the ball in my hands and also going up and getting it (in a crowd).

"One thing I am working on a lot is getting bigger and stronger this offseason and that means I am in the weight room a lot. I am also working on getting faster. 

"I am playing on TMP (a 7v7 team from Northern California) so I will be going up against the best of the best and I'll be working on my route-running and being more explosive."

Some of the camps that Hodgins hopes to hit include Arizona, Oregon State, Cal, Washington and Boise State and he also is hoping to hit a Nike and Rivals camp in the Bay Area as well.

Dawgman.com will continue to keep tabs on Hodgins in the coming months and we will update news on him as it happens.
