The steam and momentum that the Husky Football coaching staff is riding on the recruiting trail right now is insane.
It seems like grabbing a four-star recruit is becoming the norm these days as the Huskies just reeled in another elite talent.
Saguaro High School (Phoenix, Arizona) defensive back sensation Jacobe Covington just committed to the Washington Huskies earlier today.
The 6 feet 1 inch, 195 pound Covington is one of the top defensive back prospects in the entire country and a four-star recruit.
He is currently rated as the no. 229 overall player in the nation by 247Sports and the 17th best cornerback.
Washington was able to gain a commitment from Covington, despite having offers and heavy interest from Oregon, LSU, USC and Oklahoma.
Covington possesses all the skills and talent with his tall and rangy frame and also has great speed and physicality. He can play both the safety and the cornerback position at his size.
In regards to Saguaro High School, former Husky defensive back Byron Murphy played there as well and now is in the NFL playing for the Arizona Cardinals.
Defensive coordinator Jimmy Lake is building an elite pipeline of talent in the secondary which is why some call Washington “DBU”.
The current 2020 recruiting class for the Washington Huskies is truly stellar with this latest elite addition of Covington.
