Huskies get another QB commit for 2018 class

The Washington Huskies continue to roll when it comes to skill players for the 2018 recruiting class, as Colson Yankoff, a 6-foot-4, 200-pound quarterback from Coeur d'Alene, Idaho, verbally committed to the Huskies Wednesday night.

Yankoff's verbal commitment is interesting in a couple of different ways. First, Yankoff was originally committed to Oregon, but decommitted when Mark Helfrich and his coaching staff were fired. 

Secondly, Yankoff's verbal commitment means the Huskies now have pledges from two of the top-15 quarterbacks in the country, ranked by Scout.com. 

Here's a scouting report on Yankoff from Scout.com National Recruiting Analyst Brandon Huffman.

Season Scouting Report: Yankoff is the top skill prospect in Idaho in the 2018 class. Against Lake City (Idaho), he had another big game, running for three touchdowns and throwing for two more. Yankoff has the ability to find receivers and spread the ball around but also make plays with his legs. He's got pretty good speed and can take a hit, but also shows good patience in going through his reads instead of just quickly tucking and running. We've seen a lot of Yankoff in camp settings, but he's at his best on Friday nights where he can show his dual-threat ability. -Huffman
