With a break in the action and the Washington Huskies Football Team playing in the Rose Bowl, the coaching staff is working the recruiting trail hard.
Earlier tonight, the Husky coaching staff received some huge news when they gained a commitment from four-star defensive back Trent McDuffie.
McDuffie, who plays his high school football at St. John Bosco in Bellflower, California is yet another prized recruit, scored by defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake.
According to 247sports.com, McDuffie is ranked the #8 overall cornerback in the nation for the 2019 recruiting class. He is also ranked the #66 overall recruit in the nation, at any position, for the 2019 recruiting class.
McDuffie chose Washington over Stanford, Oregon and USC because of his strong relationships with Jimmy Lake, Chris Petersen and various Husky players.
In the 5-foot-10.5 inch McDuffie, the Huskies are getting another gifted addition to a secondary that is already loaded next season.
According to McDuffie’s high school coaches at St. John Bosco, he was the best player on the entire defense this past season. He is a smart cerebral player, with a ton of athleticism and tremendous upside to him.
With the ability to put elite defenses together, Jimmy Lake is reloading his pipeline of talent in the secondary, which is known as “DBU”.
