National Signing Day is February 7th. But thanks to the early signing period, many of the nation’s top players have already signed, if not enrolled. That included a large number of players in Washington’s 2024 recruiting class. With the coaching change in January, a handful of these players either decommitted or were granted releases from their national letters of intent (NLI’s). With all the recent turnover on this roster, let’s take a look at what Washington’s 2024 recruiting class looks like with less than a week until National Signing Day.
Washington’s Current Eary Enrollees
Five players in Washington’s 2024 recruiting class have already enrolled at the university and have begun Winter workouts with the team. Demond Williams Jr. had enrolled at Arizona in January, but transferred to Washington a few weeks ago. The four-star quarterback threw 93 touchdowns in high school and rushed for an additional 42. Williams was also one of 20 elite 11 finalists last Summer. Dermaricus Davis is another early enrollee at the quarterback position. Davis entered the transfer portal shortly after Williams Jr. transferred in, but recommitted a few days later. The four-star quarterback is the second-highest rated Washington recruit in the program’s 2024 class.
Peyton Waters is Washington’s highest-rated recruit in this cycle. He’s a four-star defensive back and was one of the handful of 2024 early enrollees that entered the transfer portal in January. Waters had offers from USC, UCLA, and Utah, among others, but decided to stay in Seattle. Khmori House is a three-star and Washington’s highest-rated linebacker recruit in this class. He also entered the transfer portal in January, but withdrew this past week to remain at Washington.
The Huskies gained another early enrollee from Arizona in running back Adam Mohammed. The Arizona native had a three-star rating during his recruitment and enrolled early at Arizona. He was in the first wave of transfers to Washington in January and enrolled on campus. Mohammed scored 113 touchdowns in high school, which was just one shy of Bijan Robinson’s record in the state of Arizona.
Washington’s Hard Commits
There are nine hard commits to Washington who have already signed as of the first of February. Two of whom were commitment flips from Arizona that both happened within the last three days. Rahim Wright is a defensive back who was recruited by John Richardson to Arizona. Richardson is now the secondary coach at Washington, and Wright has committed to the Huskies. He was joined by Justin Hylkema, a 6’-8” and 315 pound three-star offensive lineman. Brennan Carroll was his main recruiter to Arizona, and Hylkema has now flipped his commitment to Washington. Carroll is Washington’s new offensive coordinator and offensive line coach.
The current class also includes three pass-catchers. Justice Williams is the third-highest rated player in Washington’s 2024 recruiting class as a four-star wide receiver. At 6’-4” and 195 pounds, he has a true “X” receiver frame. Jason Robinson is a three-star at 5’-10” and is a prototypical slot receiver with pure route running ability. Washington also holds a signing from Decker DeGraaf at tight end. The three-star visited schools in the Big Ten and SEC before signing with the Huskies.
Paul Mencke Jr. is a three-star safety who has signed to play with Washington. He played all three phases of the game in high school and is the fifth-highest rated recruit in Washington’s class. Elias Johnson also signed with the Huskies at cornerback. The three-star recruit is a Portland, Oregon native and had interest from all the pacific northwest schools. On the defensive line, Omar Khan has a three-star rating. Khan is a Texas native and at 6’-2” and 270 pounds, he has the frame of a prototypical interior defensive lineman. The Huskies have another offensive tackle in their class and it’s Davit Boyajyan, a California native. He’s a three-star and stands at 6’-5” and 300 pounds.
Washington’s 2024 Recruiting Class
Five players are enrolled on campus; nine more have signed letters of intent to play for Jedd Fisch and the Huskies in 2024. The recruiting class also includes three decommits who have not yet announced their plans. It’s still possible they re-commit to Washington, and we’ll be following their decisions in the near future. Fisch has done an excellent job holding this class together despite all the changes within the program. He’s only officially lost three players in the 2024 class to other schools at this point, and 14 are locked in on the “W.” Washington’s current 2024 recruiting class ranks 12th in the Big Ten Conference out of 18 teams.
