A look at the top 25 prospects in the state of Washington

In the fourth installment of our series on the top 25 in-state players from the 2017 recruiting class we focus on prospects 6 through 10 with a look at what each player brings to the table and where things stand on the recruiting front...


#10: Shortly after his junior season was complete, White was a player that most schools knew very little about. After coaches got a chance to see his film and meet with him, he started to see offers begin to roll in and now he's up to eight offers with his latest coming from Fresno State. White has great feet, but he'll probably need to move inside to guard once he gets to college because he doesn't have the ideal length you're looking for in an offensive tackle. White is still getting his technique down and he's been hard at work adding strength and when he gets both of those aspects down, he could wind up being dominant at the next level.


#9: Cade, the grandson of legendary Tumwater head coach Sid Otton, is a dominant defensive player, but most schools project him at tight end once he gets to college. The senior-to-be has a great frame and enough athleticism to be a threat in the medium passing game in college, but where he'll be a real factor is as a blocker with his nastiness a huge asset in that aspect of the game. Otton just hauled in his first Pac 12 offer - Oregon State - and he's got a lot more schools interested in what he can do.


#8: Kanouse is a big young man with long arms and the ability to set the edge. He may need to move inside because he doesn't have the elite athleticism to take on speed rushers, but it really just depends on the scheme his future team is running. Washington State and Idaho are the two schools that have extended offers, but more schools have started to pick up the pace with him.


#7: If there weren't some questions about his academics, Gaye might have offers from the entire Pac 12 right now, but as it is, he currently holds offers from Arizona, Washington State and Cal as well as Idaho, Hawaii and Wyoming. He's got a huge frame and could easily carry another 50 to 60 pounds and be a 280 pound mauler by the time he sees the field in college. Things just started to click for Gaye late last season and he's poised to be one of the more dominant defensive linemen in the state this coming fall.


#6: Wellsfry's stock has steadily risen since January with offers rolling in from a handful of schools including Oregon State. Wellsfry moves really well for a young man his size and he plays with a bit of a nasty streak. His feet are outstanding and he uses his hands well. All that's missing is the top level strength and he's been hard at work rectifying since the start of the offseason.
