Kasen Williams

WR, 6-2, 200

Skyline (Sammamish)


Four state-title games, three titles. Kasen Williams always seemed to save his biggest games for the most important moments. Named to USA Today's All-USA first team, he is considered one of the top two prospects in the state. He finished his career No. 4 on the state's all-time receiving list with 4,121 yards, No. 4 in career receptions at 235 and No. 3 in receiving touchdowns with 56.

Austin Seferian-Jenkins

TE, 6-7, 253

Gig Harbor


One of the key pieces of Washington's recruiting class, he picked the Huskies over Texas. He is rated the No. 2 tight end in the country by and While some predict his longterm future to be as an offensive tackle, Seferian-Jenkins continues to impress at the tight-end position with his pass-catching ability and athleticism. He is rated the No. 39 overall prospect in the country by

Bishop Sankey

RB, 5-10 190


Gonzaga Prep (Spokane)

Washington State

In addition to becoming the GSL's career rushing leader, Sankey challenged the state's season rushing record with 2,518 yards, all while having opponents focus all their attention on him and spending time as a Wildcat quarterback due to injury. Considered to be the No. 17 running back recruit in the country by and No. 19 by, Sankey seems to be headed to play in Pullman.

Tani Tupou

DE/DT, 6-3, 265

Archbishop Murphy (Everett)


Don't let the fact that Tani Tupou played high-school football at a 2A school diminish his potential at the next level. CBS recruiting analyst Tom Lemming praised his footwork and aggressiveness. He liked the defensive lineman enough to nominate him for the "Team USA vs. The World" game on signing day, Feb. 2, in Austin, Texas. Tupou is big enough to play tackle in college and quick enough to see time at defensive end.

Danny Shelton

DT, 6-3, 285



When asked if he thought Danny Shelton was a blue-chip recruit, Lemming didn't hesitate. "I've seen him the last couple of years, and he's as good as any lineman on the West Coast." Rated as the No. 10 defensive-tackle prospect in the country (the No. 3 overall prospect in Washington) by, Shelton recently gave a verbal commitment to Washington over Oregon.
