Washington’s 2025 Quarterback Class, Beierly and McMillan

Washington landed the commitment of three-star quarterback Kini McMillan who joins Dash Beierly in the Huskies' class of 2025.

Washington received its fifth commitment, and second quarterback, of the class of 2025 on Tuesday night, May 7th. Kini McMillan joined Dash Beierly in a 2025 recruiting class that is starting to build a foundation. It’s a group that was forced to rebuild after it lost several key pieces following the coaching change in January. One of whom was quarterback Jackson Kollock who is now committed to Minnesota. Both McMillan and Beierly are tabbed as industry three-star recruits and have dual-threat capabilities with physical builds and accurate arms. 

Kini McMillan

The Hawaii Gatorade Player of the Year in 2023 threw for 3,521 yards and 42 touchdown passes as a junior in 2023. McMillan’s completion percentage was 68% and he averaged 9.8 yards per pass attempt last season. The three-star is a true dual-threat at the position. He rushed for an additional 11 touchdowns and 575 yards on the ground. 

As a passer, McMillan has the tools to make throws to all levels of the field. He can drive the ball downfield with solid velocity and makes passes to the second level with touch and precision. He backed that up with his performance at the nation’s top quarterback competition in April. McMillan was one of over 60 quarterbacks to perform at the Elite 11 Regional competition in Columbus, Ohio on April 21st. The Washington quarterback commit won the Accuracy Challenge with a score of 22 points. The Accuracy Challenge is a nine-throw challenge that showcases each quarterback’s ability to deliver the football on time and on target. 

McMillian also excels as a running quarterback. He does a good job of eluding pressure in the pocket while still keeping his eyes downfield with the intent to throw the football. But when he sees an opening, McMillan is quick to decide to tuck the football and run. On quarterback-designed roll-outs in the red zone, McMillan has a knack for running through arm tackles and getting around defenders to reach the end zone. At 5’-10” and 207 pounds, McMillan has a shorter frame but a physical build to shed tackles when running the football. His height doesn’t concern the coaching staff at Washington. True freshman Demond Williams Jr. is under 6′-0″ and meshed with Jedd Fisch‘s offense effectively this Spring. McMillan’s size and build also allow him to stand strong in the pocket while throwing the football. He is not afraid to take contact. 

Dash Beierly 

Washington’s first quarterback commit in the 2025 class made his decision to commit to the program in late January. He was originally committed to Fisch at Arizona. Beierly is a three-star recruit and also possesses dual-threat capabilities. He played three seasons at Chaparral High School in Temecula, California. There, he tossed 41 touchdowns, 16 interceptions, and 4,782 yards. In his junior season at Chaparral, Beierly also rushed for 12 touchdowns and 554 yards. He transferred to Mater Dei High School after his junior season and will play his final year of high school football for the Monarchs. Mater Dei competes in the Trinity League in Southern California, one of the nation’s most competitive conferences. The move will allow Beierly to compete against some of the best high school competition in the country.

Beierly has a strong arm and a physical build at quarterback. He can make throws to stretch the field vertically while standing straight in the pocket, or off platform and on the run. The Washington quarterback commit competed in the Elite 11 regional competition in Los Angeles in March. He stood out among the competitors. Beierly finished with the highest-rated athletic testing numbers with a 97.26 rating. No other quarterback broke 90 at this regional. He also finished tied for fourth in the Accuracy Challenge with a score of 21. Beierly and McMillan can both throw the football on a rope and on target.

When Beierly tucks the ball to run, he is not afraid to initiate contact. His tape shows a physical runner who can make defenders miss. And he’ll also lower his shoulder and drive through the tackler. Beierly has solid pocket awareness and his threat to run puts the defense on its heels because he can still make an accurate throw on the move and off-platform. He stands at 6’-0.5” and 215 pounds, and he shows on his tape and at Elite 11 that his athleticism is among the best in his class.
