Huskies appear to be the favorite for 4-star TE
Jude Wolfe, a 4-star tight end out of St. John Bosco High School in Bellflower, Calif., had never been to Seattle before last week, but he may soon be calling it home. Wolfe loved his time in Seattle and thinks the Huskies could be a great fit for him.
“It wasn’t just one thing that stood out, it was the whole visit really,” Wolfe told 247 Sports. “I think watching practice was one of the biggest highlights of my visit. (The practice) was high energy and nobody was sitting around because everybody was moving and getting their work in.”
After the trip, Wolfe said he would definitely take an official visit there.
“For sure, I will definitely take an official visit there (this fall),” Wolfe said, per 247 Sports. He is planning on signing in December and enrolling early.
“I will sign in December and I’m planning to graduate early, so I can get to whichever school I sign with and get started,” Wolfe said.
The 6-foot-6, 244-pound tight end is the No. 8 ranked tight end in the nation, per the 247Sports composite rankings.

Washington high on 4-star LB Daniel Heimuli’s list after visit
Daniel Heimuli, 4-star prospect, visited Washington last week and is extremely interested in the program after a great trip to Seattle.
“It was amazing,” Heimuli told 247 Sports. “It was my second time up there and, honestly, Washington just feels like home for me. The relationship I have with the coaches and the players there is great and I love going up there.”
While Heimuli loved his time at Washington, he is not expected to make a decision any time soon.
“I’m going to narrow things down to a top 10 by the end of the summer,” Heimuli said. “I’ll take my official visits and then decide on Signing Day.”
The linebacker visited USC before heading to Seattle and is also planning on visiting Iowa State, TCU, LSU, Notre Dame, Arkansas, Illinois and Ole Miss in the coming weeks.
Heimuli is rated the No. 298 overall recruit in the 2019 class and the No. 9 ILB, according to the 247Sports Composite.
Top DL target Jacob Bandes enjoys time with coach Chris Petersen
Jacob Bandes, a 4-star defensive lineman from Pittsburg High School in Antioch, Calif., had a great visit to Washington last weekend and came away raving about coach Chris Petersen.
“He’s just so honest and genuine and he’s also a great football coach,” Bandes said, per 247 Sports. “He just talked about his philosophy and explained to me and my family what he’s all about and why it’s so important to focus not just on football, but life after football.”
Bandes, a top target for the Huskies, is a 6-foot-2, 275 pound bruiser who would fit in well along Washington’s defensive line.
