Washington’s #1 recruit It happened dozens of times this season. The ball is snapped in a flash. The defense crashes into Washington’s offensive line. Keith Price drops back into the backfield, frantically looking for a receiver. But Austin Seferian-Jenkins and Kasen Williams are double covered or locked down. Price chucks up an incomplete pass. Or scrambles frantically before being sacked. Or forces a throw into an interception. Washington had an immense productivity drop off this season in the receiving corps after the big two, and the lack of options hurt Price’s stat line and the team as a whole. But there is hope Kasen Williams will be one of the best wide receivers in the Pac-12 next season, and Austin Seferian-Jenkins will be the best tight end in the country, but the Huskies need more than two targets. And next season, one of the best high school wide receivers in the nation is coming to Montlake. Here’s why you should be excited about Damore’ea Stringfellow. Washington currently has ASJ and Michael Hartvigson as the first two options at tight end. At wide receiver, Kasen Williams is the number one in front of Jaydon Mickens and DiAndre Campbell. But only Williams and ASJ were big time producers for Washington (although Mickens was a true freshman and Campbell was an inexperienced RS sophomore). Given the lack of passing options for Keith Price, someone will have to step up next season. Or, much like Williams did two years ago, a freshman will have to emerge as a playmaker. Stringfellow going up for a ball, exactly the thing the Huskies need in a WR (Photo: Google) Damore’ea Stringfellow can be that player The first noticeable thing about Stringfellow is his somewhat-tricky-to-spell-and pronounced name. But get used to it, because he could be the next Kasen Williams and more. Stringfellow played high school football at Rancho Verde High School in Moreno Valley, California. He was a consensus four-star recruit according to all of the three major recruiting services. He was ranked as high as the sixth-best wide receiver in the country. And it’s not hard to see why. 6’3” and around 205 pounds, Stringfellow has has great hands, size, and strength. He can out-muscle and out-jump defenders, and while not possessing elite speed, is plenty fast enough for the Pac-12. It’ll be a huge help for Washington to have another physical receiver who can reliably make plays in traffic. You can see some of his skills on display at the Under Armour All American game. What the future holds I fully believe Stringfellow will not redshirt and will compete for a starting spot for Washington at wide receiver as a true freshman. Kasen did it, and Stringfellow is every bit as good. Husky nation should be stoked for our top recruit. As I just mentioned in my signing day recap, Stringfellow isn’t the only target coming in. Washington inked one of the best wide receiver classes in the country, with Darrell Daniels and John Ross, and three star local tight end David Ajamu thrown in to boot. Stringfellow will provide immediate production for Washington and immediate spelling problems for sportswriters. I can’t wait till September.
