UW Rising Stars Camp - Defense

On Friday, Washington holds their second Rising Stars Camp of the summer and after quite a few calls to prep coaches and players, Dawgman.com has been able to confirm that there will be several top defensive prospects on hand to take part...

Ngata projects to one of the outside linebacker spots, most likely the strongside, and he's one of the top pass-rushers from the linebacker position on the West Coast.

Taylor is currently the only commit that Washington has in the secondary and with his long, lean frame, he looks like a perfect fit at corner. Taylor chose Washington on Christmas Eve and has remained solidly committed to the Dawgs even with schools like Arizona StateCaliforniaUtah and Oregon coming on strong over the past couple of months.

McKinney is one of the top prospects on Washington's board and he'll be up with his family this weekend. The talented safety has been high on the Huskies for a while and could be close to making a decision.

Washington hasn't offered very many 2018 linebackers, but Tuliaupupu is one of them. He's a four-star prospect with a growing list of suitors and that Husky coaches have to be excited to get him up for camp this week.

Woodbey is the number one safety in the 2018 class and Washington has definitely made a solid early impression on him. He has offers from all over including LSUOhio StateMichigan and Notre Dame. It's a huge coup for the Huskies to get him up on campus this early in the process.

Slaughter is a great looking local linebacker prospect. He's a bit on the short side, but he's got great instincts and he always seems to be around the ball.

Wilson is probably the top in-state linebacker in the 2018 class. He currently holds full rides from the likes of HawaiiIdaho and Montana State, but he's on the cusp of some Power 5 offers and Washington could be the first to extend one his way if they like what they see this weekend.
