Huskies Offer Elite In-State 2018 Prospect

Washington played host to one of the top 2018 prospects in the state on Saturday when Gonzaga Prep (Spokane, Wa.) TE/WR Devin Culp and his mother made the five-hour drive to Montlake and they didn't waste much time in showing him how much they wanted to get him into the boat...

"My mom and I got up early this morning and headed out so we could come over and meet with the coaches," Culp told "We came over and met with the coaches and they offered me."

"From top to bottom, the people over there are great," Culp said. "I mean, coach (Chris) Petersen is real genuine and he and his staff really know what they are doing over there.

"You can tell they are serious about winning there, but they are also serious about making sure you get your degree and that you grow as a person too. 

"I can't say enough good things about my experience up there today and I have real strong feelings about them."

The offer from the Huskies is the second for the talented athlete, joining the one he already had from Oregon, the school that Culp had been committed to since last summer before he re-opened his recruitment earlier this month.

"(Oregon) is still in it, but, honestly, there was just a lack of communication from them," Culp noted. "A lot of people assumed I decommitted because Colson Yankoff decommitted, but I waited a whole month to see what they were going to do and when I didn't hear from them, I just felt like I needed to open my recruiting back up so that I can make sure schools know that I'm open to other schools now.

"We'll see what happens with (Oregon) and I have most of the rest of the Pac 12 recruiting me too. CalWashington StateUtah, UCLA and Oregon State all like me and have been recruiting me pretty hard, so things are going pretty well right now."

With his size, Culp projects at tight end with most schools, including Washington.

In a run-oriented offense, Culp received First Team All-GSL honors by posting 20 receptions for 331 yards and four touchdowns while carrying the ball 59 times for 588 yards and six more scores.

Culp said he's not going to rush his decision this time and plans to wait "until the time is right". which could mean next week or all the way until Signing Day in 2018.

We'll have more on Culp in the coming months as he continues to work his way through the recruiting process. Top Stories
