Dawgman 2017 In-State Top 25: 6-10

We continue our look at the top 25 2017 prospects in the state with a look at numbers six through 10 now that they are six weeks into their high school football season...


#10: Coming from a school like Hanford which is far away from the normal recruiting stops, Wellsfry went a bit unnoticed early on in the recruiting process, but once he it the camp circuit this spring and summer, schools started to stand up and take notice. NevadaWyomingIdaho and Eastern Washington all offered, but when he got the offer from Oregon State that was all she wrote and he hasn't wavered in his decision to become a Beaver.


#9: White has been climbing up recruiting boards over the past couple of months and he's really improved as a pass-blocker in that time. White is a grinder who loves to get after it with the defensive linemen he faces and, even though he plays left tackle for Lincoln, we see him moving inside to play guard. Washington State is currently his only Pac 12 offer, but more could start to throw their hats in the ring once the offensive line dominoes start to fall.


#8: On the hoof, Gaye is super-impressive. He's got a long frame and he's added a lot of size over the past 18 months. The only knock on Gaye has been his inability to dominate even though he's much bigger and much stronger than the guys he faces every game. Off the field, Gaye has really had to put in work in the classroom to get his grades to where they need to be and we've heard he's gotten himself to a place where it appears very likely he will qualify. Once that news starts to be confirmed by schools, expect a lot more to add their names to his list of suitors that already includes Washington State, California, Oregon State and USC among others.


#7: Powell committed to Washington State pretty early in the process and he hasn't looked back. With long arms and great feet, he's an ideal tackle prospect once he gets to college. His biggest drawback has been his academic standing, but we've heard he's made some positive progress on that front. We'll have to see. If he is able to qualify, Washington State could have one of the steals of the class because Powell has All-Pac 12 ability.


#6: With offers from NebraskaWyomingBYU and Oregon State, Otton already had some great opportunities lying in front of him, but once Washington stepped up and offered, that was it for the home grown talent. Otton plays middle linebacker for his team, but he'll likely move to either tight end or the BUCK linebacker spot. He's got long levers and he's very instinctive.
