Though the Huskies caught a few recent breaks at cornerback—namely, Antavius Sims finally enrolling and Desmond Trufant not declaring for the NFL draft—pass coverage remains a huge issue in Montlake.
Redshirt freshman Marcus Peters could help solidify the cornerback position next season, but Washington needs more cover corners on its roster.
Three-star recruit Darien Washington verbally committed and seems to be sticking to it (despite cornerbacks coach Demetrice Martin leaving for UCLA), but he appears to be the only commitment at the position right now.
Martin's departure also loosens UW's grip on two corners from Compton, Brandon Beaver and Alphonso Marsh. Where those two recruits sign will heavily impact this class.
Husky fans hope that new hire Keith Heyward brings a few commitments with him from Oregon State, and that he has enough time to make a splash on the recruiting trail.
