SI99 Unveiled, Ranks UW Target Conerly Among Nation's Best

The Huskies need to sign Seattle offensive tackle to help salvage class.

The second college football signing period is eight days away, and just six recruits named to the SI99 remain undecided, including offensive tackle Josh Conerly from Seattle's Rainier Beach High School.

The 6-foot-5, 275-pound Conerly, considered by some to be the top offensive lineman of the Class of 2022, has pared his choices to Michigan, Miami, Oklahoma, Oregon, USC and Washington. 

While he's offered no clues as to where he's leaning, the stakes are high for new Husky coach Kalen DeBoer to land Conerly. 

As he rebuilds or reloads the program, DeBoer could accelerate the process if he were to land the big kid from the south end of town. Signing Conerly would show that the new staff is making great progress in the month and a half it's been on the job.

Conerly's addition alone could save a Husky recruiting class neglected even before DeBoer's predecessor, Jimmy Lake, got fired and almost a throwaway group.

Conerly would help reverse a recent trend of Washington state's top player going elsewhere to play, in particular edge rusher JT Tuimoloau and wide receiver Emeka Egbuka going to Ohio State a year ago, and current SI99 wide receiver Tobias Merriweather picking Notre Dame.

Without Cornerly, the Huskies will get shut out in having players on the SI99.

The annual list involves only seven of these recipients going to the Pac-12, including four to USC, two to Arizona and one to Stanford. Alabama has 12 of these recruits, Texas A&M 11, Georgia 10 and Ohio State 9, as the rich get richer. 

The SI99 player ranking, which is compiled by Sports Illustrated All-American's John Garcia, is as follows:
