Excluding the departures, the University of Washington football team has brought back at least six players who started last season safely.
On Wednesday, the Husky family offered a scholarship to another player who pulls shots in the back row, free safety DeMario King of Cerritos College in Norwalk, California.
However, King is bigger or bigger than the men with a UW scholarship, and carries a 6-foot-3, 215-pound frame.
He currently holds shows from Arizona, Arizona State, and The Husky Family.
King has two seasons of eligibility left after playing the 2019 season with Cerritos Falcons, after the pandemic wiped out last year’s schedule and returned for a second season this fall.
Recently named a second-team all-around conference, King finished with 96 tackles, 7 breakout passes, and a mandatory 6-5 team stumble.
In 2019, he collected 39 tackles, interceptions and defensive passes.
A famous fast driver for someone so big, King scored 25 touchdowns, including 4 on a starting return, for Los Alamitos High School, with his junior college and high school located not far from Anaheim.
New Husky coach Calin Deborre signed five players last week and said he expects there will be approximately 15 newcomers, depending on the movement of the roster. He said he doesn’t necessarily assume they’ll all be high school recruits.
