Washington Huskies 2011 Recruiting, Part Two: WRs and TEs

In the last edition we looked at the quarterbacks and running backs Sarkisian and his staff has offers extended to. This edition looks at the pass catchers, the wide receivers and tight ends.

Jamaal Jones

Jones is a 6-2/175 receiver from Graham Washington. During his junior season he produced 600 yards and 11 touchdowns on 40 pass receptions.

Currently Jones has three scholarship offers, and lists his interest in Washington as high. Jones is a speedy receiver, running a 4.4 40-yard dash. A local product, he would be a good edition to the Washington receiving corps.

Kasen Williams

Williams is a 6-2/200 receiver from Sammamish, Washington. This past season Williams posted 74 passes for 1,209 yards and 20 touchdowns. He was also used as a returner and gained over 200 yards in that role.

Running a 4.6 40-yard dash, he might not blow you away with speed, but he accelerates very quickly. Was the go to guy for BYU commit Jake Heaps. It would be a huge pick up to keep Kasen in-state and playing for the Huskies.

Williams might just be the best in-state receiver recruit since Reggie Williams. Important to keep him from going out of state, and re-establish the state as a UW pipeline.

Victor Blackwell

Blackwell is a 6-2/195 receiver from Mater Dei High School in Santa Ana, California. During this past season Blackwell posted 1,044 yards and 11 touchdowns.

Blackwell is a speedster having run a 4.4 40 yard dash. While he has speed, he is also accomplished as a receiver as well, not just a track speed guy. He is excellent at adjusting his body and has great hands. Has the ability to be an elite player at the college level, and is an ESPN top 150 prospect.

Would be a huge get for Washington, but we will see how his interest is when he picks up more offers from California schools. Blackwell would be a great signing, but Williams might be the more important recruit when it comes to keeping Washington kids in state. We saw this last year with Williams’ teammate Heaps, and the quarterback the Huskies eventually landed, Montana.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins

Seferian Jenkins is a 6-7/253 tight end from Gig Harbor, Washington. Seferian Jenkins produced 1,076 yards and 11 touchdowns on 63 receptions during his junior season.

Serferian-Jenkins has his choice of colleges to attend, holding 27 scholarship offers. Currently he lists Florida, Oklahoma, and USC as high on his list. He would be a huge commitment for the Huskies, but it doesn’t look like he has much interest in staying in Washington at this point.

Going into 2010, Washington has a fairly deep and young wide receiving corps. Still, a pick up like Williams or Blackwell could find themselves on the field sooner rather than later. 

Serferian-Jenkins would be a huge pick up, as his blocking skills are tremendous, not to mention his receiving skills, but right now it looks like it would take a lot to gain his interest. It is still very early though, and a good start to the 2010 season could have people looking back Washington's way.

Scout also shows offers to  George Farmer, Anthony Denham, and Devon Blackmon. For those players there was a lack of either information on the player, or no other site confirming that Washington had indeed offered those players at this point. If we can find confirmation, this section will be updated.
