Washington Football Recruiting: Huskies Land 3-Star RB Myles Gaskin
Myles Gaskin has experienced a relatively quiet recruiting process so far, but the 2015 3-star running back made noise this weekend as her verbally committed to the Washington Huskies.
The Seattle, WA native has been a heavy Huskies lean since early November when he named them as his leaders on Nov. 13. Just two days after naming the Huskies as his leader, rival Washington State offered Gaskin to make things interesting. Since naming the Huskies as his leader, Gaskin has been laying low on the recruiting trail until now.
The 5-foot-9, 185 pound running back is rated as the 34th best running back in the nation and the No. 7 overall player from the state of Washington in the 2015 class. Gaskin has a good frame with ideal strength for a running back and quick feet and change of direction.
He rushed for over 1,100 yards and 15 touchdowns as a sophomore in 2012 and was named First-Team All-League this past season as a junior. Gaskin has been timed in the 40-yard dash with a time of 4.5 seconds and also competes in track where he runs the 100-meter dash in a time of under 11 seconds where he was a state finalist last year.
Gaskin becomes just the second commit for the Huskies in the 2015 class as he joins fellow 3-star offensive lineman Trey Adams. The Huskies’ class currently sits at 39th in the country, but they are ranked No. 4 overall in the Pac-12.
