Presenting the University of Washington Huskies Recruiting Class of 2004. Let's take attendence as faxed letters arrive in Montlake offices.

Class of 2004
(School) Hometown

DENRGreyson Gunheim
(Analy HS) 
Sebastopol, CA
NOTES: Greyson put the Huskies at the top of his list because of the blend of academics and athletics after his official visit and they never left that spot despite trips to Oregon and Nebraska.

S37Chet Sanders
(Carson Senior HS) 
Carson, CA
NOTES: "I love to hit and I have great hands. Those are my strengths," Chet said. Colleges are recruiting him as a free safety.

RBNRJohnie Kirton
(Henry M Jackson HS) 
Mill Creek, WA
NOTES: Finished his senior campaign with more than 2,600 rushing yards, nearly a state record. Named Class 4A player of the year by the Associated Press and Gatorade, and the Seattle Times' regional offensive player of the year.

TE30Caesar Rayford
(Bethel HS) 
Spanaway, WA
NOTES: With his athleticism and size, Rayford is the kind of prospect that could make an impact at a number of different positions. "I'm being recruited as a defensive end, but Gilbertson also talked to me about tight end too," said Caesar. "Whatever position they want me, I'm going to work hard and play hard."

CBJCJosh Okoebor
(San Bernardino Valley) 
San Bernardino, CA
NOTES: "I'll be there in the spring," said Josh. He has a 250-pound bench, 350-pound squat, 38-inch vertical leap and legitimate 4.3 speed.

DT38Erick Lobos
(Venice Senior HS) 
Los Angeles, CA
NOTES: Erick Lobos, 6-3, 280, Venice (Calif.) High, has had a quick surge up the recruiting charts this fall, which has taken him from being a sleeper to one of the top 25 defensive linemen in the nation.

QB8Matt Tuiasosopo
(Woodinville HS) 
Woodinville, WA
NOTES: Considered the best quarterbacks on the west coast. He has great arm strength, very good feet, and the same toughness and natural leadership ability that made his older brother such a great college quarterback.

DTNRJasper Henry
(Susan Miller Dorsey HS) 
Los Angeles, CA
NOTES: Dorsey head football coach Paul Knox comments on Jasper: "First of all, he's a great young man. He's been in our program for four years and there hasn't been any trouble with him inside the classroom or on the field. He's just an excellent guy to be around and to coach."

DEJCRashaad Goodrum
(Los Angeles Valley) 
Van Nuys, CA
NOTES: The past year or so, the Washington coaches have been looking for a Kai Ellis-type of rush specialist, and they got one in Goodrum. A two-year starter, he had 55 total tackles last season including 35 solo stops. He was credited with 16 tackles for loss, six sacks and 18 quarterback hurries. He also forced a pair of fumbles.

SJCDashon Goldson
Coffeyville, KS
NOTES: Dashon Goldson was the main JC target for the Huskies this fall, and is one of the rare examples of a JUCO prospect bouncing back to the team he originally signed with out of high school.

S46Mesphin Forrester
(Venice Senior HS) 
Los Angeles, CA
NOTES: Good all around athlete who plays on both sides of the ball. Has good size and projects well as a safety.

RBNRDaniel Howell
(William S. Hart HS) 
Newhall, CA
NOTES: With his size and speed (has clocked a 10.9 in the 100m), Howell could project at tailback, fullback, safety or outside linebacker in college.

RBNRLuke Kravitz
(Olympia HS) 
Olympia, WA
NOTES: At 6-2 and 210 pounds, Kravitz is being asked to shore up a fullback position that will be in need of experience and talent once Zach Tuiasosopo graduates in 2004.

OLNRJovon O'Connor
(Los Angeles Senior HS) 
Los Angeles, CA
NOTES: "Jovon plays on the offensive line and he also plays defensive tackle for us," (L.A.H.S. Coach Hardy) Williams said. "But at the next level, he's strictly an offensive lineman. He's been with us since the 9th grade and he's just got a good attitude. He's a good kid. He's not the type to go to college and embarrass his coach."

S9Keauntea Bankhead
(Ballard HS) 
Seattle, WA
NOTES: Arguably the hardest-hitting safety prospect to come out of the state of Washington since Lawyer Milloy.

S44Darin Harris
(Decatur HS) 
Federal Way, WA
NOTES: Harris, who plays quarterback for the Gators, was set on wanting to be a signal-caller in college, but UW made it clear to his family that they forsee his future on the other side of the ball.

DE48Jordan White-Frisbee
(Inglemoor HS) 
Kenmore, WA
NOTES: Washington is going to start Jordan off as a defensive tackle. "They lose a lot of people on the interior of the defensive line, so that's where they want me to play," said White-Frisbee. "I'm very happy with that."

LB34Trenton Tuiasosopo
(Mariner HS) 
Everett, WA
NOTES: "I've always liked Washington, watching them growing up and seeing Marques and Zachary and all the success they have had," Trenton told TheInsiders.com Thursday. "And it's close to home and my family and friends can see me play. That was very important."

OL162Nathan Flowers
(Chula Vista Senior HS) 
Chula Vista, CA
NOTES: Flowers is very athletic and reportedly runs a 5.0 in the 40-yard dash. His current bench press is 240 pounds.

OL92Tyler Ashby
(Ballard HS) 
Seattle, WA
NOTES: His last reported 40 time is 5.3, last max bench is 315 pounds, last max power clean is 300 pounds and max squat is up to 520.

OL114Ryan Bush
(Gov John Rogers HS) 
Puyallup, WA
NOTES: Has a natural center build, with long arms and a low center of gravity. Plays both ways for Rogers

DE42Walter Winter
(Juanita HS) 
Kirkland, WA
NOTES: DE Walter Winter -- Good speed. Sideline-to-sideline ability.

OL47Casey Bulyca
(Woodinville HS) 
Woodinville, WA
NOTES: A big, tough, nasty tackle prospect that has been starting for the Falcons since his sophomore year; an All-Eastside and All-Kingco selection as a junior. His main job is protecting the blind side of quarterback Matt Tuiasosopo, arguably the best prep quarterback on the west coast in 2003.
