Washington ranked No. 6 in ESPN’s post-Signing Day way-too-early Top 25

ESPN must have been impressed with Washington’s National Signing Day.

The Huskies moved up one spot in ESPN’s third edition of its way-too-early Top 25.

Washington is checked in at No. 6 after previously being ranked seventh. The Huskies had the 13th best 2018 recruiting class, per 247 Sports. Washington’s class had 21 total players, 11 of them being four-star recruits and the remaining 10 rated as three-star players.

The Huskies are the early favorite in the Pac-12. Returning Quarterback Jake Browning and running back Myles Gaskin once again give Washington a high-powered offense. The team will have to fill the voids left by Pac-12 Defensive Player of the Year defensive lineman Vita Vea and linebacker Keishawn Bierria but the Huskies have plenty of talent in Seattle.

Here’s what ESPN had to say in their latest top 25:

“The Huskies have the best combination of quarterback (Jake Browning), offensive line and tailback [Myles Gaskin] in the Pac-12 coming back this season, and they’ll have nine starters back from what was a young defense in 2017. And now they’ll also have improved depth from what is undoubtedly Chris Petersen’s best recruiting class.”
