The Washington Huskies are quickly becoming one of the elite programs in the Pac-12 and it is showing on the recruiting trail.

Yesterday, right before Washington’s spring game, the Huskies landed their eighth recruit of the 2018 class in Wilsonville (Oregon) 3-star defensive end Draco Bynum.

Bynum’ recruiting stock took off when he won the Big Man Challenge at the Under Armour regional competition back in late February.

“Bynum is an impressive looking defensive end with a prototype frame for the position,” Scout’s Greg Biggins wrote. “He plays with a relentless motor to him, does a nice job disengaging, showed a burst off the edge and is a naturally strong kid with a lot of physicality. You should expect to see his stock really soar this spring when colleges can see him up close and personal.”

The 6-foot-6, 250 pound end choose Washington over Oregon. He also held offers from Oregon State, Cal, Duke, Nebraska, UCLA, USC and others. With Bynum’s commitment, Washington’s 2018 class now ranks No. 8 in the nation according to 247Sports.
