Dawgman 2017 In-State Top 25: 16-20

With the bye week upon us, we thought it would be a good chance to check in on the in-state top 25 and see where things stand now that we are a full six weeks into the high school football season...


#20: He's the leader along the offensive line on one of the top teams in the state. McKnight is versatile and can play every position along the offensive line, but he's a guard once he gets to college where he can use his outstanding technique and underrated athleticism to pull and get to the next level. McKnight currently holds offers from Air Force and Montana State, but more schools have been coming on for him including Ivy League schools.


#19: Davis is just a grinder. He starts both ways for Bonney Lake, but it's on the defensive side of the ball where he eats his lunch. Davis is tough to move off the line-of-scrimmage and his quickness off the fall really causes problems for the offensive linemen he faces off against. It's baffling that he's still waiting on his first offer, but he's got plenty of schools recruiting him including most of the Big Sky as well as a few Mountain West programs.


#18: Kim committed to Air Force very early in the process and it will be a shock if he winds up anywhere since he's got family ties with the Falcons. Kim is smart, athletic and he plays bigger than his size would indicate. The senior two-way star is also very instinctive and he looks like a solid safety or linebacker prospect, depending on how much size he adds once he gets to the academy.


#17: The moment you see Tryon, you can't help but be impressed by his long frame. He's an ideal defensive end prospect once he puts on another 20 or 30 pounds and we feel that Washington State got a steal when they were able to bring him in.


#16: Like his future teammate, Joe Tryon, Sanders is very impressive on the hoof. He's got long levers, he's quick off the ball and he loves to get after it as a pass-rusher. Washington State beat out Missouri, Eastern Washington and Wyoming for the talented pass-rusher and, like Tryon, we feel they got a steal.
