The Last Candle

According to my count the Huskies still have one more scholarship to offer to fill the 2008 class since LB Kurt Mangum has said he will graduate early and be here for Spring practice.

If you look at next years roster it seems the Huskies have filled about every slot for next season. That means the last spot remaining will go to the best athlete left standing.

C David Decastro, and LB Donovan Carter seem to be the top kids left on the board. Obviously if either wants to attend UW they will gladly take them. That being said they are both longshots to attend UW at this point. It looks like UW will finish second respectively to Stanford, and UCLA on these two kids.

The next in line could be S Marvin Bayless from Texas if they decide to fill the spot with another DB. Bayless said the Huskies would get back to him at the end of the week to let them know where he stands as far as an offer goes. Note that we probably already have 6 DB's in the current class once players are moved to the positions they are best suited for.

UW also could sav the spot for next season if they can't find the right type of kid who they think will make an impact. The last two weeks till LOI day always has a few surprises, so it will be interesting to see how this all shakes out.

My Preference?

My first preference would be for us to take another offensive lineman, you can never have too many. If we indeed switch to a 3-4 another LB would come in handy.
