Dawgman 2018 In-State Top 25: 1-5

We're down to our final installment of the Dawgman 2018 In-State Top 25 and today we look at one of the top quarterback recruits in the nation, one jumbo receiver, one multi-purpose athlete and two of the top defensive backs on the West Coast...


#5: If you're looking for an in-the-box safety, Putney is your guy. Putney is aggressive, he's physical and he loves to compete. He's also pretty good in coverage as well. Last season, while playing the marquee position ("Striker") in Eastside Catholic's defense, he finished with 53 tackles, three tackles-for-loss and two interceptions. The senior-to-be just received his first offer -- Montana State -- and there are plenty of other schools eyeing his talents, so it shouldn't be long before the floodgates open with offers. 


#4: Since Reggie Williams, there hasn't been a more gifted wideout, at least athletically, in the state. Culp is huge, he's explosive and he's athletic. He's also one of the rawest prospects you will ever see. Gonzaga Prep doesn't throw the ball much, so Culp really hasn't learned the nuances of playing the position or the route-tree. Culp committed to Oregon last spring, but re-opened things after the coaching change. He recently received an offer from Washington and he's got plenty of other schools evaluating him right now.


#3: Harrison is a multi-purpose athlete who could be a star on either side of the ball. While he's a great receiver, a lot of people see him as a fit at safety or even corner. Harrison carried the ball 39 times for 535 yards and four touchdowns while also posting a team-leading 45 receptions for 866 yards and finishing tied for the team-lead with five touchdown reception. As a safety, Harrison also posted 19 tackles, one sack and two interceptions. He's super athletic, he's explosive and he's got great ball skills. Harrison's recruitment has blown up since the end of his junior season with offers BYU, California,Michigan,Missouri, Oregon State,UCLA,Utah, Washington and Washington State and more schools from across the country have started to pursue him.


#2: Gordon is one of the elite corners in the West this season. He plays bigger than his listed height/weight, he runs really well and he's got incredible ball skills. Gordon already has several offers from within the conference including Washington, Stanford, UCLA, Cal, Arizona, Oregon and Utah and he's also received offers from Nebraska andTCU. Expect quite a few more to roll in this spring.


#1: At this point, Sirmon is the unquestioned top recruit in the state. He's got everything you want in a quarterback -- size, arm-strength, a bit of a cocky attitude -- and once it all comes together upstairs, he took a huge leap in this department from his sophomore to his junior season, he'll be one of the best quarterback recruits to come out of the state over the past 20 years. As a junior this past fall, while leading Bothell to a 9-3 record, Sirmon completed 58% of his passes for over 2,700 yards with 21 touchdowns and just five interceptions. Sirmon is currently committed to Washington and has stated he's quite happy with his decision to become a Husky, but that hasn't stopped schools like AlabamaMichigan, UCLA and Louisville from coming after him.
