With Benning Potoa’e commitment on Thursday, the Huskies pulled in the state’s top-ranked recruit, according to Scout.com. UW now has six of the top seven-ranked recruits in the state, with Boise State-bound QB Brett Rypien the lone exception.

Washington, as a state, obviously won’t ever compete with the talent pool of California, but it’s certainly crucial for the Huskies to keep the top talent home. They can’t consistently let the Myles Jacks or Zach Banners of the area slip away.

“Every kid in Washington should grow up saying, ‘I want to be a Dawg,’ because of the brand, and the brand is Coach Petersen,” said Aleki Potoa’e, Benning’s father.

With Budda Baker and Kaleb McGary last year, and now with RB Myles Gaskin, WR/RB Chico McClatcher, OL Henry Roberts, OL Trey Adams, CB Austin Joyner and LB Jusstis Warren, the Huskies have kept the top talent home so far under Chris Petersen. It’s a trend they’ll want to continue, no doubt, in the coming years.
