Washington passes Oregon for top-ranked recruiting class in Pac-12

Following 4-star linebacker Brandon Kaho’s flip to Washington from BYU on Saturday, 247sports reports that the Huskies now have the top-ranked recruiting class in the Pac-12.

Washington now ranks 10th nationally in the 2018 class rankings, per 247sports, and it’s Kaho that put the Huskies over the edge.

From Scott Eklund of 247sports:

If the 6-foot-2, 232-pound Kaho ends up being the best linebacker in this class on the next level it shouldn’t shock anyone. There isn’t a second level position he wouldn’t be an impact player at. 247Sports ranks him as the nation’s No. 2 inside linebacker while the industry-generated 247Sports Composite slots him at No. 5. He is under strong consideration to finish as a five-star with our network, checking in as the country’s No. 32 prospect regardless of position.

The Oregon Ducks had the highest-ranked recruiting class in the Pac-12 for most of the season, at one point ranking in the top 5 with Willie Taggart.

But with a swath of recruits signing with the Huskies over the past week brings Washington to 8 4-star commitments for the 2018 class. Oregon now ranks No. 11 in the country, one spot below the Huskies.

Ohio State currently has the best class in the country for 2018, followed by Texas then Georgia.
