Visit list for LSU game is loaded with talent
Corona (Ca.) RB Jordon James - James has had his eye on the Huskies for a while and while he has offers from across the country, Washington appears to be a school that has his attention more than most. He's an explosive player with home run speed, something Washington has lacked in recent seasons, and if he commits to the Huskies soon, he could be the back of the very near future in Washington's backfield. James also has visits planned to Arizona, Cal, Notre Dame and UCLA, but we're hearing that UCLA and Washington are likely to be the schools he decides between.
Corona (Ca.) CB Demetrius Wright - James' teammate and one of the most physical corners in the country, Wright would add that aggressiveness, size and athleticism that has been lacking in Washington's secondary to this point. Wright has been high on Washington for quite some time and he has offers from over 20 schools, but it appears this could end up a two school battle with the Huskies battling USC for his signature next February. Tennessee is the other visit he has scheduled.
Citrus Hill (Perris, Ca.) RB Deontae Cooper - Cooper has already been up to Seattle to take in a day of Washington's Rising Stars camp and he was one of the most impressive skill position athletes in attendance. He's a player who has great vision and he explodes through the hole. He led the state of California in rushing last fall with 2,953 yards and he finished second in touchdowns with 47. Washington is the only visit he's set up and it's been rumored he could be close to making a decision.
Culver City (Ca.) LB Victor Burnett - The talented run-stuffer from California absolutely blew up during his tour through the camp circuit this summer and he's got offers from schools up and down the west coast as well as across the country. Washington is the first and only visit he's scheduled and he'd be a perfect fit in middle of the Dawgs' defense. Also considered as favorites of his are Arizona, Arizona State and Oklahoma.
Saguaro (Scottsdale, Az.) OT Kody Innes - Innes has schools from all over looking at him, but Washington is the first to get a visit. Innes could play tackle or slide inside and play guard at the next level. Washington got into the game late with Innes, offering back in July, but they've made enough of an impression to get him up on a visit. Colorado, Cal and Arizona State have to be considered top contenders for him as well.
Unofficial visits: We've also heard rumors that Palmdale (Ca.) CB Josh Shaw is still planning to unofficially visit Washington this weekend. He has already been up to see the Husky program up close already, but some are saying he might be coming up to get an up-close look at LSU as well.
Other unofficial visitors are likely to include Auburn LB Chris Young, Auburn DT Danny Shelton, Gig Harbor TE Austin Seferian-Jenkins, Skyline WR Kasen Williams, Bothell OL Colin Porter, Bothell TE Michael Hartvigson, Jesuit WR Keanon Lowe, Lake Oswego RB Tyson Coleman, O'Dea OL Ben Riva and FB Zach Fogerson as well as most of the Lakes team including LB Darius Waters, DT Sione Potoae and WR/S Jamal Kearse.
There are likely to be over 70 recruits in the house for the game and we will try and compile as comprehensive a list as possible once we get to the game.
