UW already hot on the 2011 recruiting trail

It goes without saying that with recruiting happening earlier and earlier in a high school football prospect's career, teams need to extend offers on a much quicker timeline. Dawgman.com takes a look at some of the top 2011 prospects on Washington's radar who have already received offers from the Dawgs...

Through a number of different sources, Dawgman.com has been able to confirm the offers of 12 different players. There are others who have received offers that we haven't been able to confirm yet, but here's an early look at some of the top prospects on Washington's 2011 recruiting radar who do have them...

1) Cathedral Catholic (San Diego) DT/OT Mustafa Jalil - The talented interior defensive line prospect (who can also play tackle on offense) is a player that already has seen a ton of interest from schools across the country. He's already got offers from Washington and Arizona State and he's hearing from Florida, USC, UCLA, California, Oklahoma and Miami among others.

2) Taft (Woodland Hills, Ca.) DT Antwaun Woods - Woods could end up being the top defensive tackle prospect on the entire west coast this fall. He's got superior quickness and a low center-of-gravity that helps him anchor against the run. He's got an offer from the Huskies as well as full-rides from Florida, USC, Arizona, Cal, Tennessee and UCLA and others like Alabama, Miami, Florida State and LSU are looking as well.

3) Bishop Alemany (Mission Hills, Ca.) RB/CB Akeem Gonzales - His talent was on display when Washington commits Nick Montana and Erik Kohler took on the Warriors the first week of the season. The talented defender has got schools like Cal, UCLA, USC, San Diego State and Arizona State already eyeing him, but it appears that Washington was his first offer.

4) Beverly Hills (Ca.) DE Greg Townsend - He's an absolute beast off the edge and Townsend is already an early favorite of most of the Pac 10. He's already earned offers from USC, Arizona State, Cal, UCLA, Miami and Washington and he's hearing from schools across the country and could end up being the top defensive end prospect west of the Mississippi.

5) Crenshaw (Los Angeles) RB DeAnthony Thomas - The electrifying runner has been splitting time in the crowded Crenshaw backfield with Hayes Pullard and Geoffrey Norwood, but he's still one of the top running back prospects in southern California. Every time he gets his hands on the ball he has a chance to take it the distance with his legit 4.4 speed. He's also be an outstanding safety prospect and wherever he ends up he'll be a dangerous return man as well. Washington's offer joins scholarship offers from Arizona State, USC and UCLA among others.

6) Junipero Serra (Gardena, Ca.) WR George Farmer - One of the top three wideouts in the entire country, Farmer can do it all. He's got good size (6-2, 200) and speed (4.38) and he's an explosive playmaker. Schools from the across the country have already showed interest and joining Washington with offers are UCLA, Stanford, USC, Cal and Arizona State.

7) Hamilton (Chandler, Az.) OT Christian Westerman - Will likely be one of the top linemen in the country next year and is already one of the most sought-after line prospects in the 2011 class. He could play inside or outside, but the general consensus is that he will be a tackle at the next level. Washington's offer joins full-rides from Arizona State, Cal, Florida, LSU, Michigan, Nebraska, USC, UCLA and Notre Dame.

8) Central Catholic (Portland) DE Brennan Scarlett - We got a look at Scarlett at Washington's "Rising Stars" camp this past summer and shortly after his outstanding performance there, he was offered by the Huskies and recently he got his official, written offer in the mail from the Dawgs. He's a huge specimen and he's relentless when pursuing the quarterback. Washington was the first to offer, but shortly thereafter Oregon State and UCLA followed up with offers as well. Expect him to get into double-digits before he even starts thinking about making a commitment.

9) Lake Oswego (Or.) RB/ATH Tyson Coleman - The talented athlete can do it all. He's outstanding as a running back, but he may be an even better safety prospect. He's got a great frame and good vision. Could he be the next big back in Washington's offense? It's always possible. He's got early offers from Washington, Oregon and Oregon State and schools like Washington State, Cal and Arizona have also shown some interest as well.

10) Skyline (Sammamish, Wa.) WR Kasen Williams - Widely considered the top wideout in the country when it comes to 2011 prospects, Williams showed his worth two weeks ago when Skyline fell to Oaks Christian in a thriller on national television. Williams can do it all from the wide receiver position and is a threat to take it the distance anytime he touches the ball. He's already 6-2, 205 and when he arrives on a college campus he could be in the 6-3, 215 pound range. Washington and UCLA were the first to offers in the books for Williams, but Cal soon followed suit and then offers from schools like Alabama, Arizona State, Boise State, BYU, Florida, Georgia Tech, LSU, Notre Dame, Stanford, Tennessee and Washington State also began to flood in.

11) Gig Harbor (Wa.) TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins - He and Williams will battle for the top spot in the state next year, but there's no denying that Seferian-Jenkins is one of the top athletes in the country. Schools like Oklahoma, Miami, North Carolina, Notre Dame and the entire Pac 10 have extended offers. At this point he appears infatuated with leaving the state, but the Huskies threw their hat in the ring early and he's been to several UW games and practices so far this season.

12) Archbishop Murphy (Everett, Wa.) DE/DT Taniela Tupou - After seeing the way he abused people at their "Rising Stars" camp, UW offered Tupou shortly thereafter. The talented line prospect could play end or tackle, depending on how much weight he's able to put on. Washington is currently his only offer, but BYU, Oregon, Oregon State and Utah are also in the mix and could offer soon.
